From the moment I first watched A Pep Talk from Kid President to You and heard the classic line, “Not cool, Robert Frost!,” I was a fan of Brad Montague and his writing.

Now, you may not have heard of Brad, but I’m betting/hoping you have heard of his most successful creation so far, Kid President.

But Brad is about more than one amazing project, and we had the chance to talk about all of this on this episode of the Why I Write Podcast.

We, of course, discussed the success of Kid President, but we also talked about his latest venture encouraging everyone to rebel joyfully through the Montague Workshop. This creative studio is on a mission to make media, experiences, and more that are full of wisdom, wonder, and whimsy.

What I love about Brad’s work is that he proves that all it takes sometimes to make a powerful statement is a few, well-chosen words. Watch his video A Balloon’s Story to see exactly what I mean.
