It's... Oatmeal Week on Chompers? Man we are running out of ideas...

Where to Listen


>> Rachel: Hi... everyone. Um... BRUSH! Sorry. I mean, hmph. Hi Folks! And welcome to Chompers. 

Start brushing, you know, on the top. Make those... little circles. 

>> KIDS: 3 - 2 - 1 Brush!

Get ready Chompions, because it’s Oatmeal Week on Chompers! And this week… is all about… Oatmeal... ?

Wow, are we running out of ideas? I really need a vacation.

>> ZAC: Me too. 

>> Rachel: Zac! You scared me dude .

>> Zac: We have DEFINITELY earned a vacation.

>> Rachel: IF only. But who would do Chompers while we’re gone?!

>> Zac: Hmmmm, I think I know who can help. I’ll be right back! 


>> Rachel: Okay.. well, bye? Ok, while Zacs gone... switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth? And don’t forget to brush your front teeth. 


>> Zac: Tada! It’s Kurt! 

>> Rachel: Kurt, the Software Engineer for Gimlet Media, the company that makes Chompers?!

>> ZAC: That’s the one, say hi Kurt! 

>> Kurt: Yeah... hello. 

>> Rachel: Um, Hi Kurt! Zac, Kurt is awesome but he’s gotta be too busy to make Chompers for us! 

>> Kurt: Yeah... I am WAY too busy. 

>> Zac: I know THAT. I thought maybe he could use his computer coding skills to program…. a CHOMPERBOT! 

>> Rachel: A Chomperbot?! 

>> Kurt: A Chomperbot?

>> Zac: A CHOMPERBOT! Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth, and don’t forget the molars in the way back.

>> Kurt: Like a robot that can host Chompers? 

>> Rachel: That would be amazing. Think of all the vacations I could take! Kurt, do you think you can do it? 

>> Kurt: Sure, I bet I can do that. What should the topic for the week be?

>> Rachel: Well, we were planning to do Oatmeal Week… but I’ll let you decide! 

>> Kurt: Alright, let me work something up real quick here… (building sounds under the following)


>> Kurt: Voila! 

>> Kurt: Let’s give it a try. I’m running the “Host Chompers” function on a week long loop… 

>> ALICE: Switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your bottom of your, and give your hair a brush too.

>> Kurt: It’s just got a couple bugs in it I think.

>> Zac: Ew! I hate bugs! 

>> Kurt: Not like, a creepy crawler bug. In computer code a BUG is when there’s a problem, or an ERROR. I’ll work on it today, and try to have it working by tonight! 


>> Rachel: Alright, while you do that, I’m going to book my vacation!  Oh I also need to find some sunblock and a towel and my goggles and a snorkle ...


>> Rachel: Oh yeah you’re right Chomperbot. That’s all the time we have for Chompers this morning. Come back tonight, and hopefully we’ll have this Chomperbot up and running. Until then… 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!! 

>> Chomperbot: OATMEAL WEEK!


>> Rachel: Not now Chomperbot! Chompers is a production of Gimlet Media.
