NM0018 – Falk Family Finale

- Dear Friends, I am so excited to bring you the final installment of the Falk family story. This is part four of a series about Holocaust survivor Gabrielle Falk and her family. This episode focuses on how Gabrielle's parents, Walther and Ellinor Freund survived the Holocaust and how the family reunited after the war. While I know my work on this series can never really do the story justice, I hope it will at least give you a glimpse at an amazing person and help us all to never forget. Thank you to Irene Uffrecht-Peters for the photos from…

NM0017 – Kristallnacht

- Hello Friends and Happy Valentine's week! As promised, this is part three of a four part series on Holocaust survivor Gabrielle Falk and her family. Specifically, this episode focuses on Gabrielle and her parents during the war. The title comes from a night of violence inflicted on Germany's Jewish community Novemer 9 - 10, 1938, known as Kristallnacht. I will be honest in telling you this was the toughest episode I've done yet. Not only is the subject matter disturbing (maybe it's appropriate that I'm posting it on Friday the 13th!), but it was also a challenge to find…

NM0016 – Holocaust Survivor

- Hello Friends! Long time no post. Sorry about that. With the holidays and so many other things going on (see the episode for more details), I needed more time to put this one together. Not to mention this is definitely one of the hardest stories (emotionally and logistically) that I've put together so far here on New Mexicast. What started as a simple recording session to document one woman's life's story as a favor to her family has turned into a three part (or maybe more... who knows?) series. After all, how does one tell the story of someone's…

NM0015 – Hiatus

- Happy New Year my dear friends & family! I must begin this new year with an apology. Sorry that I haven't posted an episode (or an explanation) in several weeks. As with so many other families during the holiday season, we had too many commitments and not enough time. In fact, I am typing this from my parent's house in Chicago while the girls (and their cousins) are napping upstairs. I hope you will all understand that this is not a case of "podfading" (the term for podcasts that suddenly disappear into the twilight). The next episode of New…

NM0014 – Family Historian

- Hello Friends! Have you ever undertaken a project that you were excited about only to wonder if you are out of your league? Well, this week's story is like that for me. In fact, the story is so important that I have decided to turn it into a two part series (which has never been done before here on New Mexicast). So this week's episode is part one. It is about an amazing man named Stephen Falk. He has made it his personal mission to research his family tree and to preserve what he can after so much damage…

NM0013 – Stocking Stuffers

- Hello friends and happy Thanksgiving! It is the time of year where our thoughts turn to family, friends and opening our hearts. You know I never ask for anything from you all (Other than watching every episode, subscribing to and spreading the word about New Mexicast, posting comments and taking a survey... okay, so I do ask a lot of you! LOL!) but I thought I would put an appeal out there to help a great cause this holiday season. One year ago this month, we lost my dear father-in-law, Dr. Sam Goldfein. Because he was always dedicated to…

NM0012 – Pinto Bean Fiesta

- Hello Friends! I hope you are all enjoying the change of weather as much as we are. We recently traveled to Binghamton, New York where the leaves were changing brillant shades of yellow, orange and red. Back here in New Mexico we have been enjoying pinon picking (pine nuts) and lots of sunshine one day and snow the next. This week's episode comes to you a month late (since I forgot to hit "publish" and it never was posted last month) and after plenty of technical mistakes on my part. While on vacation in Puerto Penasco, Mexico my husband graciously shot…

NM0011 – Pumpkin Patch

- Hello Friends! I have to say I don't know what's more frustrating... the fact that my brain is so fried that I forgot to hit "publish" for the last episode and managed to not post any story at all (which means there have been no updates here for a month), or the fact that it took me two weeks to notice. So, dear viewers, please accept my sincere apologies for shortchanging you this month. Still, despite my gross oversight, because it is almost Halloween I am going to go ahead and post the episode I was planning to post…

NM0010 – Balloon Fiesta

- Hello Friends! This week I am happy to share with you one of the reasons I fell in love with New Mexico more than 10 years ago; The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. It is an annual tradition unlike anything I have ever seen. As waves of hot air balloons take flight (more than 700 in all!) spectators get to walk among them. It is a beautiful experience for people of all ages. For more information about the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, visit www.BalloonFiesta.com Now I would like to ask for feedback from all of you wonderful viewers. Recently a…

NM0008 – Dollhouses

- Hello Friends! I am just returning to the wonderful Land of Enchantment from the Windy City where I was visiting my family. It was great to see everyone, but it is always great to be home too. As you may have noticed, we have been traveling a LOT this summer. One of the places we visited was Montreal, Canada. While there, I learned that our dear friend's mother, Mina Kupferberg, has a house that looks like a dollhouse museum. She shared her collection with my daughters and they were delighted. I was amazed to hear that she has created…

NM0007 – NHL Dreams

Hello friends! For those of you that are watching the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, you should appreciate this week's episode of New Mexicast. It is about a 14 year old hockey player with big dreams. Sure there are plenty of amazing hockey players his age who have big dreams, but this is Jade Castello's story. He works hard and with his mother's help, he is overcoming lots of obstacles as he pursues his goal of making it to the NHL. I hope you enjoy meeting this young man and his mom. I certainly did. To my loyal viewers, as always…

NM0006 – Manic Mommies

Hello Friends! And welcome to all you Manic Mommies' fans that are just discovering the New Mexicast! If you're like me, you have long felt like Erin and Kristin were kindred spirits because you've listened to every single episode of their awesome podcast. As you struggle through endless parenting challenges, they have probably felt like two of your girlfriends who just tell it like it is. Well, if this sounds like you, then I think you're going to love this episode of New Mexicast. Because, as much as Erin and Kristin share with their listeners on the show each week, I think seeing them on video along with their families, makes them feel…
