And with every spring comes changes! The biggest change for Learning and Laughter with Louise (and my sister hosted shows) is that we will be moving from the Toginet Radio umbrella to all become HerInsight Media.
Now don't panic! It will be the same show- just a new company website with a new look! See my banner below:
So let us recap- who have been the wonderful guests on Learning and Laughter to date: Well, here is the list (and I really, really, really am sorry if I missed any names) I have added Amazon links if you wish to check out any of the fine products, etc. associated.

February 24th we invited two AMAZING KIDS to join Learning and Laughter. We had Jaylen from Jaylen's Challenge (help stop bullying and educate about Tourette Syndrome) AND Lane Sutton the Kid Critic USA. Jaylen even brought guests, too! His mom, Robin and Dash Mihok also joined us.
