In this week’s episode of "I Love You So Much," the Austin360 podcast, we explore the current slime trend terrorizing moms across the country (the world?).

We stopped by the warehouse for Austin indie toy emporium Toy Joy, where the shop’s brand manager, Robby Petinatoto, gave us some background on the history of slime and insight on why kids can’t get enough of the stuff. Then we visited Jay Kang, a 15-year-old slime entrepreneur in Round Rock who has built a successful business that sells over 1,000 tubs of custom slimes a week.

Our weekly podcast from the features staff of the Austin American-Statesman comes out every Friday, and you can find everything you’d ever want to know about this show and its contributors at If you want to pitch an idea for the show or give us feedback, shoot us a note at
