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.

With the Marlowe still recovering from the monster attack, Finn and his friends get into a little mischief aboard the station. But that all comes to an end when they're sent on their first exploring mission, to a planet they've been told will be peaceful, quiet, and maybe even a little bit boring. The good (bad) news is that their visit turns anything but boring.

We're still collecting alien jokes and names for our robot. Send them in!

Halloween Special Bonus Episode

Today's episode takes a break from the regular Finn Caspian storyline to tell a short, spooky story for Halloween. Every year the Marlowe throws the best Halloween party in the universe. But this year, an uninvited guest causes some trouble for the Explorers (especially Voltronix Zu).

For parents: There's nothing about this story that's particularly scary compared to other Finn stories, but the ghost's voice is maybe a little creepy. So it might be worth giving it a listen or testing it out first.

And if you want to pick up on the kid-lit reference in today's story, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving is available for free here.
