Rocket Fuel and Rejection with Malcolm Newsome
I’m Brenna Jeanneret, children’s lit author, mother, rock climber, outdoors person, and podcaster joined by Josh Monken, children’s lit author, father, science communicator, and podcaster.
Josh and I found that with our powers combined, we could make Captain Planet. Maybe not, but at least our powers combined can make a pretty rad podcast with the help of behind-the-scenes wizardry from Jon Seymour.
Our guest for this conversation was Malcolm Newsome. You can find Malcolm on Twitter and Instagram.
