S1: EP 14 | Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself - Children's Podcast - Part 2
Part 2. The exciting conclusion of this 2 part episode, and the conclusion of The World of Buddy Pegs Season 1! After Watson, Wrigley, and Schmiddy disappear into the secret tunnel below Buddy Pegs, they emerge in Schmiddy's secret workshop. Watson calls a 'sticking around meeting' because he has another hair brain idea for a new gadget to be added to his bike, a Super Bike Booster (SBB). Schmiddy gets right to work building it! The next day, the Buddy Pegs crew finds out that one of the local pups fell off her bike and rolled down a steep hillside! Time for Poppawheelie and Captain Endo to jump into action! Will Watson’s new Super Bike Booster (SBB) help save Pepper? Will Watson (AKA Captain Endo) finally learn the importance of cleaning and safety checking his bicycle? Be sure to “stick around” so you can find out! Lessons Learned: Taking the time to clean and safety check your bike is just as important as going out and riding it. The importance of teamwork. Staying calm when you’re in trouble. Words to Explore: Trajectory, Assessment Automatic Cacophony Also learn more about Jean Tingley (1925-1991): "As a creator of kinetic works of art, Jean Tinguely counts among the great pioneering artists of the second half of the twentieth century. At the heart of his work was a preoccupation with the machine. What interested him most was how machines work, how they move, the noises they make and their intrinsic poetry." Tips For Your Family Ride: Do you and your kids safety check your bikes before each ride? Well there’s no better time to start than today! Before each ride, make sure: Handlebars are tight Wheels are on tight Brakes are working properly Tires are inflated Have a safe ride and help your kids build habits they can carry over into all areas of their lives. Remember, check yourself before you wreck yourself! Written by Scott Fitzgerald and Bob Berky Performed by Scott Fitzgerald, Bob Berky, and Jannine Fitzgerald, the little's (Braden and Claire). Written for kids 7 & under but safe and fun for kids of all ages. Check out all of our episodes at BUDDYPEGS.COM/PODCAST Creator Notes: We all know kids LOVE to clean up and patiently prepare for big adventures…. Right? Yeah, don’t worry, our son doesn’t either. We hope this episode lays the foundation for family conversations about what it means to ride a safe bike. Even encouraging kids (oh, and adults) to clean their bikes is a big step towards safe adventures on two wheels. Plus, cleaning and maintaining bikes is another great family activity that keeps everyone present with each other. I recently had a chance to hear a live presentation by the actor Geena Davis who is on a mission to bring gender diversity to the entertainment world. Her talk was a real eye opener and we immediately realized we too have focused on mostly boy characters in the World of Buddy Pegs. So you’ll notice now that Pepper has morphed into a female character and is now played by one of our local kids, Claire. If you want to know more about Geena’s work, check out www.seejane.org. One more thing… Do take a minute to also check out the Jean Tingley creations on our website. We love introducing young groms to amazing creators you may not have heard of before. In fact, I had never heard of him either until our co-writer Bob brought him to our attention. So cool! ~Fitzy

S1: EP 13 | Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself - Children's Podcast - Part 1
Part 1. What exactly does the Buddy Pegs bike shop look like anyway? Well, in Part 1 of this 2 part episode you can take a look for yourself! The Buddy pegs crew takes you on a tour of the shop complete with Schmiddy’s fantastical contraptions like the Repair Bike Check-in-omatic 4000 (RBC4K for short), and a garage door opener like you’ve never seen before. Oh, and the best part… wait until you hear about the secret entrance to the underground part of Buddy Pegs! Only Watson, Wrigley, and Schmiddy know about that… and now you too! Lessons Learned: Slowing down to finish what you started. The importance of teamwork. Words to Explore: Contraption Constellation Suspended Simultaneously Tips For Your Family Ride: Do you and your kids safety check your bikes before each ride? Well there’s no better time to start than today! Before each ride, make sure: Handlebars are tight Wheels are on tight Brakes are working properly Tires are inflated Chains are lubed Click Here to Watch a PRO PARENT Tip video on how to safety check your kiddos bike! Have a safe ride and help your kids build habits they can carry over into all areas of their lives. Remember, check yourself before you wreck yourself! Written by Scott Fitzgerald and Bob Berky Performed by Scott Fitzgerald, Bob Berky, and Jannine Fitzgerald. Written for kids 7 & under but safe and fun for kids of all ages. Read Full Show Notes HERE. Check out all of our episodes at BUDDYPEGS.COM/PODCAST Creator Notes: When we wrote this episode we had four things in mind: Describe the shop in more detail (in the past we’ve spent a lot of time describing the characters who work at Buddy Pegs, but not the shop itself). Explain more of the “character flaws” of Watson, the dalmation who is co-owner of Buddy Pegs. Introduce the underground lair beneath Buddy Pegs. Lay the groundwork for an adventure and bigger theme that will evolve in Part 2 of this episode. Buddy Pegs is not your typical bike shop and we had a blast thinking up all the crazy contraptions that Schmiddy the dog, the cat has built over the years and we’re only getting started. Of course these are the gadgets we wish we had in our bike shop! Imagine an automated track system that quickly moved bikes around the shop - bring it on! Watson is perhaps your typical bike shop owner… if you’re describing me when I was a shop owner. Always moving to the next thing and not slowing down long enough to complete a task has consequences. Boy did I learn that the hard way. And so will Watson in Part 2! We really hope this supports the conversations you’re already having with your kids about the importance of stopping to finish a task and clean up before rushing into the next “thing”. But we can’t have a teaching moment without a little drama and intrigue can we? Finally we get to show you the Buddy Pegs underground lair! As you’ve heard in past episodes, Schmiddy is the mastermind behind Poppawheelie and Captain Endo’s super gadgets. But where and when does Schmiddy make them? Well below Buddy Pegs in his master workshop of course! We have some great things to show you in Part 2…. Just don’t expect any Batmobiles. And finally, what does “check yourself before you wreck yourself” really mean? As you can imagine, Watson is in for a life lesson in Part 2 that will make it all clear. Until then… keep your thumbs up and the rubber side down. ~Fitzy

S1: EP 12 | The Reason For Giving - Children's Podcast - Part 2
Part 2. The exciting conclusion to the first Buddy Pegs holiday episode! Spokesville’s Holiday Bike Drive Extravaganza Extraordinaire (or SHBDEE for short) is in jeopardy! All the right sided pedals of the donated bicycles have been stolen from Top Dog Elementary School. Not to worry because Poppawheelie, Captain Endo, and Master mouse Kabibble are on the case! Find out how the crew works together to recover the stolen pedals from the villainous cat Cheetos and saaaaave the day! Oh, and take your first trip to Macho Taco to find out why those Splendito Burritos are so darn good! Eclectic Tantalizing Parkour We suggest wearing your bike helmet if you want to get into Parkour. The value of 'giving' transcends beyond the holiday season. You do not have to be a superhero to use your 'super smarts' to solve a problem. The best way to learn to ride a bike is with no pedals of course! In this episode, Poppawheelie uses her new call to action when it’s time to roll, “Pedal in Power Position aaaaaannnd, let’s ride!”. Do your kids know what “power position is”? Power position is simply putting your foot on the pedal at the top of a pedal stroke before you push down and start riding. Now head out try it with your kids, maybe you’ll even hear yourself shouting out Poppawheelie’s rally cry!

S1: EP 11 | The Reason For Giving - Children's Podcast - Part 1
Part 1 of this original children’s story, all the pedaling pooches who work at the bicycle shop Buddy Pegs are getting ready for their very first holiday bicycle giveaway called the Spokesville Holiday Bike Drive Extravaganza Extraordinaire! Or, SHBDEE for short. A mystery unfolds when the Buddy Pegs crew arrives to fix up all the bikes before the event begins. Oh no... All the right pedals, and Woodruff’s pedal wrench, have been stolen! In the blink of an eye, Watson and Wrigley transform into the two doggie superheroes Poppawheelie and Captain Endo. With the help of their pal Schmiddy, now known as Master Mouse Kabibble, the team mounts their bicycles to search town, find the pedal bandit, and recover the stolen pedals. There’s a lot to learn too in this episode! Episode Themes: The holidays are about giving and not just receiving! Using your own smarts, your own logic, and teamwork can make you a superhero too! When you borrow something, bring it back! Do your kids know what a Penny Farthing is? From wikipedia: “The penny-farthing, also known as a high wheel, high wheeler and ordinary, is a type of bicycle with a large front wheel and a much smaller rear wheel. It was popular in the 1800’s until the development of the modern ‘safety bicycle’ in the 1880s. It was the first machine to be called a ‘bicycle’.” Did you know that left and right bicycle pedals screw into the cranks in different directions? That’s right! Or.. left. Um, yeah. Right pedals screw in righty/tighty and unscrew lefty/loosey. But, left pedals are the opposite! If you want to see more, check out this Park Tools video on how to install and remove pedals: Written by Scott Fitzgerald and Bob Berky Performed by Scott Fitzgerald, Bob Berky, and Jannine Fitzgerald.
