With a mic in hand and video camera rolling nearby, Julian Shapiro-Barnum‘s priceless interviews with kids for his hit web series “Recess Therapy” demonstrates the incredible wisdom, keen observations and often hilarious insights of children including viral hits like “Komodo dragons eat people” and “I hope you have a corntastic day.”
