In this week’s episode of the “Power Kid Podcast,” host Phil Albritton of Power Kid Design speaks with game inventor Peggy Brown.

Brown has written books, taught classes, and worked with the world’s best toy, game, and entertainment companies creating products that have been sold around the world. She was named Game Innovator of the Year at the 2009 TAGIE Awards, and this year she’s nominated again for her work on three recent titles:  My First Rush Hour (ThinkFun); and Bye, Felicia and Who’s the G.O.A.T. (Big G Creative).

On the show, Brown serves up advice on growing a thick skin, shutting out noise and naysayers, and getting to work. Then she delves into the importance of doing the homework on the manufacturers, and how to really listen to kids and learn from what they tell us.
