Show Notes

Winter 2021 – “We don’t hide the crazy, we parade it down the street!”
Because of Covid-19, Mardi Gras — for the most part— was cancelled for 2021.
Luckily, we have previously unreleased recordings from Mardis Gras’ past captured right here in Portland, Oregon… featuring live music, parades & even a Ball!
We invite Bayou born Randy Jackson to our porch for a “substantial“ Gumbo cookout & for a sweet treat Baker Dan chimes in on King Cake.
Join us around the table, all y’all, for this episode we call – Jumbo Gumbo Ya Ya!
Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!
Brian & Tavé

Ep. 9 Pea(ce) Soup

Sept. 2017  – International Peace Day falls on September 21st, therefore this month we will be emphasizing the Peace – in Peace, Love & Soup. We’re going to talk to Wintry Whit Smith who is spreading peace education worldwide with her Peace Village Global curriculum! She has some simple and helpful superpowers to promote peace for all of us: Stop…..Take a breath….. Be calm…..Be kind! On the soup menu we just couldn’t resist and decided to make a Pea soup — a one pot Minty Garden Pea And Coconut Milk Soup to be exact. It’s a versatile soup you can serve cold, tepid or hot, because who knows what the weather will be on any given day in September! And adding to the audio nourishment this month, will be the musical stylings of THOSE WILLOWS a talented band from right here in Portland, Oregon. Also the song “Powerful Enough”, written by Rand Bishop, performed by Rand Bishop and the kids from the Lincoln City Peace Village. (And be sure to listen for our surprise singing debuts, as Tave puts her own spin on the British classic we now refer to as “Peas for Two” and Brian… Well, let’s just say he’s been holding back his talents.) Let’s get this Peace Show or shoud we say – this episode we call Pea(ce) Soup… on the road. KINDNESS GO! Brian & Tavé ...

Ep. 13 Scrabble Soup

Spring 2018 – We’re trying something new for Season 2! 3 shows,  (Spring, Summer, Fall/Winter)… also new for 2018 @PEACELOVEANDSOUP on Instagram. On this episode we’re focusing on Storytellers! We talk with New York Times best selling author, educator and activist, Renee Watson. www.reneewatson.net and http://www.itooarts.com/ Native to Portland, but now living in NY, she writes “realistic fiction” and poetry centered around the lived experiences of black girls and women, exploring themes of home, identity, and the intersections of race, class, and gender. Also on today’s show we spent an afternoon with ceramicist, storyteller, herbalist and humanitarian, Baba Wague Diakite. BABA WAGUE @: babawague.wordpress.com and www.kofalen.org He talks about the importance of storytelling, and it’s uses to educate as well as entertain, and how this age old tradition was handed down for generations in Africa. Originally from Mali, Wague has been living in Portland, Oregon for many years with his wife and daughters. His eldest, Penda Diakite, is also an author and artist, as well as a clothing designer.  She reads us her original story “ I Lost My Tooth in Africa” written when she was just 12 years old. PendaDiakite.com and pendawear.com Baba Wague also teaches us how to make Tiga Dege Na or West African Peanut Soup. Our “Did You Know” segment will be all about peanuts! We share some truly fascinating information about yet another humble everyday food staple taken for granted. Such as: PEANUTS SAVE LIVES! All the music featured on this episode is by Portland musician, Jonny Cool.  You can find him here: www.jonnycool86.com And https://m.soundcloud.com/jonny-cool We’ve titled this episode Scrabble Soup! Like the popular game, but instead of connecting letters to form words we edit individual stories to ...
