220 episodes

The Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian is a serialized science-fiction story for kids (start with Episode 1), 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.
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. When pressed, we describe it as a "mystery gang" story, sort of like Scooby-Doo in space.
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. His son Griffin, 7, 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.
Produced in partnership with Gen-Z Media. For more great shows, visit GZMshows.com.

Good podcast

This is a very very very good podcast but if I’m being honest it jumped the shark halfway through season 5. The storylines are excellent though and it is incredibly interesting to listen to. Beebop tales is an amazing bonus and they can be treated as separate story’s (except for that one episode) overall a very good podcast and a joy to listen to

So much fun!

My six year old daughter and I both LOVE this. Thank you.
