The Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian: Science Fiction for Kids

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. When pressed, we describe it as a "mystery gang" story, sort of like Scooby-Doo 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.

When last we saw our trusty explorers, they were stuck playing an alien game show that was rigged against them! Can Abigail solve the riddle posed in the game? Did the listeners solve it for her? Is the damage done to Jonathan's fragile ego too much to bear? Affirmative on all counts! Tune in to see how the explorers finally get off the game show planet, and what bad omen follows them up into space.

It's game show time! The explorers find themselves on the most bizarre planet yet, where they are contestants on a game show.

Once again, we have another puzzle for our listeners, and this time it's Abigail who needs your help! Send your solutions to earth@finncaspian.com!

In this week's episode, Vale must summon what courage he has to try to stop the Mite King from gobbling up his friends. Abigail and Foggy have their own plans to help, and the explorers learn a little about what Mr. Sparkles may be. And I don't want to say there's a BeeBop Tales Season 3 preview this week…but there might be.

This week, the puzzle is solved, but the problems are just beginning! Finn figures out how to break the aliens' spell over his friends, but in doing so, releases an even greater, but tiny, danger. Also, questions arise about Jonathan's ability to carry a tune.

In our Halloween bonus episode, the explorers of the Marlowe face off against the Headless Robot. It takes some creative thinking on their part to figure out how to appease the ghost, and it doesn't go too smoothly at first. But! Thanks to some literary ingenuity, they might just save the Marlowe.

Also! We have clues to our toughest puzzle yet, and only two listeners have gotten it right! If you know the answer, send yours to earth@finncaspian.com. Good luck!

The kids are back in space! They follow the coordinates etched into the stone, um, given to them by Mr. Sparkles. Things seem just fine at first, when they encounter a town, with what looks like people walking around the square. But it doesn't take long for things to go haywire, and Finn has to solve a puzzle to save his friends. And we need your help! You may need to listen closely a second time around to figure it out. If you know the answer, send yours to earth@finncaspian.com. Good luck!

In today's episode, the kids experience the scene foreshadowed in episode 1, and they have to decide what to do once the adults disappear. And questions still surround Megbot, and the little blue baby alien that showed up last episode isn't helping. And finally, Jonathan takes a week off from introducing the show and BeeBop doesn't like it!

In this week's preview of Season 3, our editor Griffin sits down with our introbot BeeBop, to make some educated (and some questionable) guesses at what is going to happen in the next season. What does BeeBop think will happen to Finn? What books has Griffin spied his dad reading? And how does anyone in that house get any sleep? Find out in today's special edition of Spoiler Club!

Our listeners are hilarious, and they send us amazing jokes every day. In today's bonus episode, BeeBop, Griffin and Jonathan read a bunch of kids' jokes, and play even more jokes recorded and sent in by kid comedians. These jokes may result in blurred vision due to laugh tears, so please drive safely!

It's the BeeBop Tales Season 2 Finale! Can you believe it? Why, it seems like only yesterday, BeeBop was eating all of my valuable and sentimentally meaningful art, but it's turned out that's nothing compared to what he's lived through. In today's episode, we see him face down Dr. Perkolator, who, we learned last episode, seemed to have betrayed him. And BeeBop manages to answer a listener question about squid armies at the same time. All in a day's work.

This is it for us until September. Thanks so much to everyone who has listened, written in, phoned in, sent us art, voice memos, etc. Griffin and I (Jonathan)—as well as BeeBop—are so grateful. BeeBop will be back with a couple bonus episodes, but we'll see you soon!

In this week's episode, BeeBop begins a journey to defeat Barron von Messingham once and for all. But first, he must enter the Messingham Tower, and make it to the top, one level at a time. And waiting for him at the end of the first level is a very particular plant.

In this week's episode, BeeBop has to solve a riddle with the help of listeners, but that's only where the trouble begins! Will the toys enlist in BeeBop's battle? Will the evil Messingham foil him once and for all? How much topspin does BeeBop's forehand really possess? There's only one way to know…

In honor of the summer family vacation, members of Kids Listen—the nonprofit org full of the best kids' podcasters in all the land—are publishing episodes related to road trips! As big fans of the games you play in the car on those long rides, we thought we'd make one up for our listeners. All you have to do is record your kids (or your whole family!) saying the words or sounds on the list below, email us the file, and we'll edit it into the pre-recorded story and send it back to you. Just use the voice app on your phone, and record it as one file and email to earth@finncaspian.com. I’m going to record the story, and I’ll edit your responses in, and send you the mp3. I’ll also send you a PDF of the story, so if you’re going on a road trip, you can take it with you.

Here's what I need from you:

  1. A noun
  2. An adjective
  3. A name
  4. A verb
  5. A pleasant sound
  6. An ominous sound
  7. The sound of a robot turning on
  8. The sound of a confused robot
  9. The sound of an alien practicing karate kicks
  10. The sound of a robot asking an alien to stop practicing karate kicks
  11. A fruit
  12. And the sound of a robot eating a fruit

I know it probably sounds complicated. But if you’d like to play along, it’s actually fairly simple. Just let the voice memo app on your phone run, or turn on the recorder app on your computer, and then email me the file. I’ll take care of the rest. 

I’ll do my best to turn them around as they come in. But I’m only going to be able to offer this until July 18th. After that, you can send me the files, and I’ll do my best, but I'm only guaranteeing up until the 18th. We'll have the story up after the 18th at finncaspian.com/game.

Thanks for playing along! I can't wait to hear what everyone comes up with!

BeeBop is back for another mini-series, and this one is one of his more ridiculous (and that's saying a lot!)

BeeBop decided to take some liberties with the recordings of BeeBop Tales 2, so we need to wait one more week for Electric Beepaloo to roll out. In the meantime, BeeBop and Jonathan discuss recording procedures and listen to some jokes sent in from kids! See you next week! 

And thanks to everyone who came out on Sunday to the live show! So fun to meet so many awesome kids!
