SHTETL ON THE SHORTWAVE

ShazamFest & Sex is a Funny Word

Shazam Fest & Sex Talk for Kids

Shazam Fest is the creation of  Ziv Przytyk. At 10 years old this quirky eco-conscious  fest in the Eastern Townships of Quebec brings you music, circus, burlesque, wrestling and more. Find out who Przytyk is and how his Jewish roots contributed to founding this whimsical community building summer fest.

And, sexpert Cory Silverberg, author of the new progressive comic book for kids “Sex is a Funny Word“,  gives us the lowdown on how to talk sex with kids. Wish I’d had this book growing up!
