Ep. 0 Transcript: 

upbeat intro music

Kellie: Hi, I'm Kellie, a rabid raccoon inside of star fililed skinsuit. I'm a lifelong creative maker and artist. 

Seth: And I'm Seth, a semi terrestrial gradient of cosmic curiosity, um, a whirlpool of ideas and imagination. Were two married people who started a business together called snuggle rocks. It started out as a sticker business, but took a sharp left turn a few years ago when we were introduced to the kendama world. 

Kellie: As Seth and I navigated the kendama community, we encountered some incredible people beyond kendama. There are also artists, artisans, entrepreneurs, and visionaries, each bringing a wealth of skill to the metaphorical table. 

Seth: This sparked the idea for Snarkle Talks, a space to share collective thoughts, ideas and wisdom. We all have so much to offer. 

Kellie: And we're here to showcase that we're chatting with some of our favorite people asking the important questions like what's your favorite root beer?
