Breakfast Club Videos

  • Week 1: Today’s topic? How to build and maintain friendships in this new pandemic world. Even better, the short story today is brand new - you’ll be the first to hear it and (maybe?) laugh!
  • Week 2: This one is all about physical growth, and Jimboy finally explains what he means by “winter bear” and “summer bear.” As for the short story, he’s introducing more new material that may just be a little dark and scary. Watch at your own risk!
  • Week 3: Tune in for mental growth (one of his favorites!) and of course, a short (ish) story. Grab your family and sing the song! Squat challenge anyone?
  • Week 4 It’s the last “regular” Breakfast Cluband this time we’re talking mental growth. Don’t miss one of your last chances to hang with JB, and see which crazy button up he has on today. Maestro, let’s shake, rattle, and roll!
  • Week 5: Jimboy’s got the traditional final story teed up, the one that we tell at the final Breakfast Club every year. Tune in for the Frog and the Scorpion, a lesson we all need to remember in the real world!
