Goat Yoga and Bob Mervak on Singing with Kristen Bell

Danialle is back, starting with the hot new trend of Goat Yoga.  Shawn Cannarile, owner of Hilltop View Farms in Lansing, joins us to explain what exactly Goat Yoga is. Also, Shawn tells us how it’s improving the lives and well-being of her clients.

Next, songwriter Bob Mervak joins us to talk about the amazing places his music has taken him. From working with George Clooney, odd encounters with Phillip Seymour Hoffman and growing up with lifelong friend Kristen Bell, Bob shares his incredible stories and closes with Oopsie, the new “carpool anthem” of Danialle’s four sons.

About Shawn Cannarile and Hilltop Views Farm

Shawn and her husband purchased Hilltop Views Farm and started their new life that soon turned in to adopting goats for no more than simple joy and companionship. Their first two cuties, Petunia and Oakley were the sweetest little addition to our farm. They quickly wanted more, and shortly after adopted Rosey Valentine. Most recently their Christmas baby came along, Frosty. Each of the goats have their own unique personality that makes guests laugh and smile every day. This farm and these animals have brought us so much joy and Shawn wants to share it with everyone!
