    Greetings!

    Yes, it's been a long time since we've published any episodes.   Covid finally caught up with members of our production team and did so at a time when we've been pondering the future of our podcast.    For now, our production schedule remains in a slow-down mode given circumstances somewhat out of control.    Regardless of our reduced production schedule, your support has not wavered even slightly - for that we, we thank you!

    More material is coming in the near future, including a full stellar episode for all of the Livelong episodes!   But for now, we wanted to share the latest single from our friends, Rubber Plane!    "2 2 1" marks the first new single from Rubber Plane since their debut album premiered back in 2011.    This is a wonderful song and anthem about love and perserverence and tackling the toxicity of hate in our world.    We hope you enjoy it!

    Thank you!

    ***The Beatru Chronicles*** (Chapter 4~Colonel Rhys) - PSP38

    ***The Beatru Chronicles*** (Chapter 4~Colonel Rhys) - PSP38

    Welcome back to Planet Storytime!

    We start season 3 with chapter 4 from The Beatru Chronicles, "Colonel Rhys" which picks up directly after the conclusion of chapter 3 and takes us back to the riverside with Beatru and Brik as they try to escape from from the oncoming battalion of the Chairman's firehorns!

    We're happy to see Beatru's podcast episodes picking up more and more support as we get deeper into the story - thank you!    We will continue to shake up our show and continue to occasionally provide stories that are better suited for younger children.  We also have an interview coming up with an exciting, amazing children's author who will also be a guest reader for us, reading her brand new story - but that's a secret until the next podcast:)

    In the meantime - thanks for sticking with us this past year.    As challening as things have been on so many different fronts, it's not hard to see that if we work to be kind, thoughtful, gracious, humble, loving, mindful, tolerant people, we can truly make the world a safer, happier place for every-single-one! 

    We salute those of you who continue to support our show and the humble values it tries to espouse.   

    We look forward to 2021 being our biggest year yet and look forward to growing with everyone here.   We couldn't do this with out you.

    Sincerely,
    PSP trench team 21

    THANK YOU!!

    ~~Artist Spotlight~~ The Jane Owen Interview - PSP39

    ~~Artist Spotlight~~ The Jane Owen Interview - PSP39

    Welcome back to Planet Storytime!

    In this episode of the podcast, our first Artist Series show, we proudly present our interview with the amazing Jane Owen - founder of Jane Owen Public Relations - and first time children's author of Tom Woof and Max the Owl, an amazing children's story!    We had the pleasure of interviewing Jane to learn more about her inspiration for writing the story and how the challenges we all faced as a society in 2020 led her to getting the story published.

    During our interview, Jane shared the impact her great grandfather, legendary book editor, Max Perkins played on her career in public relations as well as his connection to Jane's character, Max the Owl.    Max Perkins discovered Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and Thomas Wolfe, among others, and this passion for writing has been passed down thru the generations to Jane.

    There's so much more we could say about Jane and her career, but we encourage you all to listen to her reading of Tom Woof and Max the Owl and the interview that follows.    And for those of  you who would like to learn more about where to purchase a hard copy of the book, or to see some of the amazing artwork from the book,  please visit:

    We look forward to working with Jane in the future and plan to have her back on the show as soon as we can:)

    Thanks for coming on the show, Jane!!

    NOTE:   this interview and reading was conducted via Zoom, so be prepared for a few audio glitches during the interview!

    Tom Woof & Max The Owl - PSP41

    Welcome back to Planet Storytime!

    In this episode, we revisit Tom Woof & Max The Owl, an amazing story written by the amazingly talented, Jane Owen!   We were so happy to have Jane on our podcast for an interview a few episodes ago, where performed an awesome reading of her story, but given the limitations of using Zoom for recording, we all agreed the story deserved the full PSP production treatment, and Thomas and Paxton have done their best to create a wonderful story experience for Jane's awesome story.

    The story of Tom and Max is a story about friendship, gaining perspective, and learning how to tell stories that resonate with people.   It's a great lesson in how we can best interact with our family and friends in everyday life too.    This is Jane's first children's story and it's an instant classic!   

    For more information about Tom Woof & Max The Owl, please visit:

    https://www.tomwoof.com/

    You can find Tom Woof & Max The Owl at Amazon and Kindle and encourage everyone to get a hard copy of the book for its wonderful art work!

    Thanks again to our new friend, Jane Owen, for giving us permission to use her story for one of our podcasts - thanks Jane!

    (NOTE:  please forgive some of the digital distortion that pops up from time to time - this does happen occasionally on Zoom calls!)

    Welcome back to Planet Storytime!

    In this episode of the podcast, Thomas and Paxton interview the legendary, Fred Mollin!  Fred's career began back in 1972 and has spanned the bulk of his lifetime...

    From his Wikipedia page:

    "Fred Mollin is an American and Canadian record producer, musician, film and TV composer, music director, music supervisor, and songwriter.  He has produced records for Jimmy Webb, Johnny Mathis, Billy Ray Cyrus, Lamont Dozier and America, and has composed music for Beverly Hills, 90210, Friday the 13th (movies and television), Forever Knight, Hard Copy, and many more.   Mollin rose to prominence early in his career by co-producing (with Matthew McCauley) Dan Hill's international hit record, "Sometimes When We Touch", in 1977.

    As an artist, he has written and produced music for a series of children's albums, including Disney: Lullaby Album: Instrumental Favorites For Baby, peaking at #6 on January 26, 2001, on Billboard's Kid Album music chart; and Disney's Princess Lullaby Album, which peaked at No. 23 on October 25, 2002 (Billboard).  He created the musical group Fred Mollin and the Blue Sea Band, composing and producing albums such as Finding Nemo-Ocean Favorites, Lightning McQueen's Fast Tracks, and others, primarily released on Disney/Pixar albums."

    We encourage you to visit Fred's own webpage at:

    http://www.fredmollin.com/

    Fred just released a brand-new children's, interactive music album, called, "It's Great To Be a Kid", available as a digital music download, and/or CD available here:

    https://fanlink.to/FredMollin_ItsGreatToBeAKid

    In the interview, Fred talks about his motivation and inspiration for his amazing new album, as well as his career and his love of simply PLAYING music!   It's a great discussion that we think many of our listeners will truly enjoy, especially all future musicians!

    We look forward to having Fred back in the very near future where he will peform some of his favorite children's songs!

    Fred - THANK YOU for your time today and for sharing some of your history and inspiration with us!
