The Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian: Science Fiction for Kids

By Typedrawer Media

SHOW DESCRIPTION

The Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian is a serialized science-fiction story for kids, told in 15-20 minute episodes for parents to put on when driving around town, or to marathon on road trips, or to bond over before bed. When pressed, we describe it as a "mystery gang" story, sort of like Scooby-Doo meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer in space. The story centers on Finn Caspian, an 8-year-old boy aboard The Famous Marlowe 280 Interplanetary Exploratory Space Station. He and his friends Abigail, Elias and Vale are Explorers Troop 301, taking off from the Marlowe to explore uncharted planets, help the occasional alien, and solve a mystery that threatens to destroy the Marlowe. The story is written and performed by Jonathan Messinger, author of Hiding Out, former web editor of Time Out Chicago Kids, and father of two boys. We only mention that because his son Griffin, 6, serves as editor of the story, appearing in episodes to critique, make predictions and express skepticism that his father knows what he's talking about, which also happens to be the way the rest of their relationship works.

Gen-Z Summer Road Trip!

This summer, Gen-Z podcasts is providing the perfect antidote to that moment on family road trips when you can’t play another round of 20 Questions: Hours of podcasts for kids that parens will love, too. Visit BestRobotEver.com/RoadTrip to sample all of our shows, including: Six Minutes, about a miraculous girl found floating in the water off the coast of Alaska with no memory of where she came from. Or The Mayan Crystal, a wondrous adventure filled with talking animals and ancient gods. Or Young Ben Franklin, launching on July 4th, which finds everyone’s favorite founding father as a rebellious 14-year-old matching wits with the evil governor of Massachusetts. And catch up on the latest episode of the delightful science podcast, **Tumble. And don’t forget to play along with the brilliantly stupendous weekly game show, Pants on Fire, in which kids try to decide which adult is a real expert and which is a liar, liar, pants on Fire. Join Deborah Goldstein and her hilarious co-host, L.I.S.A. the robot, as we see just how good human children are at spotting the fakes. We have an entire summer of fun stuff planned with new shows, social media takeovers by your favorite characters and by YOU the listeners. And we’d love to see your family road trip photos!
