Part One: Dan Povenmire of Phineas and Ferb. Dan Povenmire may not be a household name but his creation, Phineas and Ferb, is one of the most popular kids shows on television. Povenmire lends his artistry, writing and voice talent to the show. The longtime cartoonist has a crazy sense of humor but he is coming to town for a more serious reason. His yet to be born nephew has a serious and rare disease. Dan’s sister lives here in Charlotte and he’s coming to town to help her promote awareness for this challenging condition. We’ll share some laughs, and explore a little known but important children’s health issue.

The founder of the group and artistic director join us to discuss their revival, the launch of an artistic exchange between the two cities, the differences between audiences and the arts here and abroad, blending cultural influences, the future of Moving Poets and more.
