Episode 99 – We have one hyphenated word for you… Hip-Hopera!

Kelly’s daughter Karen joins us again for a show with services, games, and songs… but mostly Hip-Hopera!

Mel’s Recommendation:

Website: Fiverr.com

  • a Global Online Marketplace where you can hire a freelancer to help you with most any digital product you need.
  • Each “Gig” starts out at $5, hence the name.
  • Mel finds it particularly useful for Graphic Design stuff, but the list is pretty limitless of what you can find.


Karen’s Recommendation:


Game: Costume Quest 1 & 2

  • a #SuperCute game where your character uses abilities gained from their Halloween Costume to defeat some evil candy-stealing monsters.
  • It’s by the cool folks over at Double Fine who also made Stacking.
  • Costume Quest is available on PC, Playstation and Xbox, and Wii so you really don’t have an excuse not to check it out.



Musical: Hamilton


  • A Hip-Hopera tale about Alexander Hamilton.  If he sounds familiar, it’s because he was a Founding Father.
  • Lin-Manuel Miranda created it based on the biography, ‘Alexander Hamilton’ by Ron Chernow.
  • There are Rap Battles between Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson…
  • The Soundtrack is available pretty much everywhere, including Amazon Prime 😉


Kelly’s Recommendation:


Music: Sail Away by Randy Newman

  • a 1972 album by Randy Newman featuring a mix of varying political messages, burning rivers, and even a dancing bear.
  • Many of these songs were actually covered by other artists.
  • You can find most of these on YouTube and Spotify.
  • Kelly is a huge fan of Randy and recommends this as your “starter album” if you are just trying him out.



Make sure to listen to next week’s episode, as we have some cool stuff planned for EPISODE 100!

    Hey Mel and Kelly
    Looking forward to the the 100th show of Nurture & Support! Though I would write to you about a new series coming on Amazon Original Series in November. It’s called “The Man in The High Castle” and all of season one will be available on November 20.
    The series is based on the 1962 novel of the same name written by Philip K Dick. It’s an alternate history story in which the united States and the allies lost the second world war. The U.S. has been partitioned into three parts, The Japanese controlled Pacific States of America, The Nazi controlled eastern half of the former U. S. and a neutral zone called the Rocky Mountain States.
    It tells the story of people living in all three areas and the impact of a series of newsreels called “The Grasshopper Lies Heavy” which show how the allies actually won WW2. The newsreels were created by someone named the man in the high castle.
    The first two episodes are available for preview now on Amazon Prime and the entire season will be available on Prime on November 20th.
    One character we all know from ZNation, Citizen Z, D J Qualls has a role in the series. Reading alternate history stories is one of my favorite pass times. I think folks might enjoy seeing this classic story brought to the screen. The first two episodes are very impressive.
    Helena and I will be listening in to the next episodes of Nurture & Support!
