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.

I have a weird relationship with this podcast. I started the first episode about a year and a half ago I could not stand it to me it was so bad. But for some odd reason I wanted to try it again and at the end of this July I just tried it and I loved it! I started it about a month ago and I’m hooked. I’m on the second season and I just think everything’s so creative. One note I know you have to be deticated to making a podcast but the endings are so boring and long you talk about the story which is ok really. But then you add art and jokes and pranks AND sounds. I’m sorry but that is a huge like 7 minutes that are completely unessescary. I think it’s a 5star story but a 4star podcast
