Mindy Thomas is Tinkercast’s Chief Creative Tinkerer and Co-Creator of Wow in the World. Mindy has been wowing listeners weekday mornings for the last 16 years on SiriusXM’s Kid’s Place Live Channel where she hosts the Absolutely Mindy Show and where she served as Program Director for ten years. She’s proven that kid’s programming can be smart, interesting, and compelling for both children and adults without sacrificing an ounce of silliness. She talks to imaginary friends (her listeners), sends kids on incredible imaginary adventures by flushing them down her “Portal Potty”, and has the super ability to keep children and adults laughing together on their morning commutes. Mindy is a Gracie Award winning host and known as an expert and advocate for children’s literature and independent family music. She has hosted live events for Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Children’s Miracle Network, and Life is Good and conducted thousands of interviews with everyone from The Muppets to Julie Andrews.
When she’s not living out her childhood dreams ‘playing radio’, she’s exploring the world with her husband and two curious and creative kids. She loves the outdoors, especially kayaking, hiking, and backpacking. She started an adventure club for moms called The Action Adventure Girls Club and she’s even jumped out of a plane on a skydiving adventure! She has no plans of ever growing up.
