Dancing With Elephants is a weekly, family-oriented podcast magazine from Chicago. Hosts Greg, Tonya, Nikolai (age 8) and occasionally Caleb (age 6) discuss current events and review podcasts, books, computer games, movies, and television shows affecting today's 'trying-to-juggle-it-all' family. A couple of personal family stories and a featured Podsafe song round out the show. The way we see it: "Life's always gonna be a three ring circus, so you might as well enjoy it."
