The Wonderful Pump - PSP87

3/24/2024
Welcome back to Planet Storytime! In this episode of the podcast, Thomas Mitchell and Paxton Stanley deliver one of L. Frank Baum's often overlooked classics, The Wonderful Pump, a story that dramatically illustrates how greed taints best possible outcomes and the crucial need to remain mindful when opportunity presents itself.

***The Beatru Chronicles - Act I*** - PSP85

2/25/2024
Greetings fellow, Planet Storytime Listeners! It's been far too long since our team has provided the PSP Universe with a hard update on the state of the show, our future and plans for 2024. For those of you who have been with us since the beginning back in the late summer of 2019, we salute and thank you! Without your support, we wouldn't have a show! For those of you just now achieving orbit around our planet, welcome! We have much to discuss! As many will attest, our production schedule since 2021 has been, at best, erratic. There are many reasons for that including Covid-19, Thomas and Paxton's careers and family priorities, lack of funding (we're talking to you, generous listener! SUBSCRIBE!), and the challenges associated with generating rich, new, content. Our original goal for PSP was to build on the energy and vibe of Mr. Rogers, Sesame Street and The Electric Co. from the 1970s, meaning, yes, we tell stories, but occasionally we make weird music or share gorgeous poems. Without demands from sponsors, we've been able to make this show whatever we wanted it to be. Sometimes we hit the mark and other times, not so much, but that's okay because our focus has always been our listernship and a sincere hope that people understand we've always done this show with love in our heart with content that stirs up all kinds of pictures in one's head. We will conitnue to run "re-runs" given that as our younger listeners grow and begin to focus on different kinds of content, new listeners show up every day. Our stories are timeless - they are not dependent on current trends and. There will always be someone's first time hearing Crow & Beetle. But new content is what keeps the show sharp and thriving and more new content is coming! For now, Paxton asked that we re-publish the full first act of The Beatru Chronicles as he's nearly completed the second act which should be published later this spring! Originally apearing for the first time on 12/6/2020 as PSP34, The Beatru Chronicles tells of the adventures of Beatru, a young girl who wakes up from a dream to find that she's in a strange land with strange creatures and there begins the long journey for our heroine as she navigates this strange world in search of answers, a way back home, and perhaps a clear explanation for the disappearance of her parents. We're excited for the upcoming release of Act II in the months ahead! For now, enjoy Act I! This episode features chapter markers in the podcast itself: Chapter 1 - The Clearing Chapter 2 - The River and the Turtle Chapter 3 - Stampede Chapter 4 - Colonel Rhys Chapter 5 - Friends in High Places Chapter 6 - Clarity and Purpose Thank you!
