Episode 179 is here with guest Matthew Goins. He is the creator and owner of Puzzle Huddle. After realizing most puzzles geared toward children lack images highlighting diversity, Goins started the company with his wife to produce puzzles that show children of color positive role models and images.
A native of Detroit, Goin moved to Sacramento with his wife and three children a few years ago. Per the Puzzle Huddle website, the couple believe “that all children should be reflected in a variety of products. As a result, they decided to create puzzles that affirm and inspire diverse children.”
In this episode of the show Johnny chats with Goins about his “addiction” to having multiple hobbies; why he loves the weather in California versus the weather in Detroit (hint: no Polar Vortex); how the realization that Legos probably aren’t best for a two year old lead Goins down the puzzle rabbit hole; why he is so comfortable being bad at something; and how companies are striving to be more inclusive.
I’ll be recording a live episode on June 1 at 5 PM at Sac Pod Fest.
