From the Beginning with Remastered Episodes


We're ready to begin releasing remastered and re-edited versions of our episodes! 

They'll basically be the same episodes but cleaned up for better sound quality. I'll be fixing errors, expanding show notes, tweaking sound FX, and adding bits of new narration here and there. Seasons 1 and 2 are in need of the most work but I've got a few "fixes" to make in Season 3 and 4 as well. It's a bit of work so I'll try to release at least 1 episode a week (starting this Friday). As I do, the old version will disappear from the podcast feed. 

We're anxious to begin the adventure again! I hope you all enjoy collecting new episode versions.

Presenting... the Aaron's World CAST!

Check out our NEW Cast List!

Curious to see who the "real" kids are that performed the voices of your favorite characters? Well, take a look at our website's NEW Cast List section.

Just like movie credits, we've listed all our voice actors (kids and adults) in order of appearance along with the character(s) they played. Some of our voice actors might not have even known they played an actual character. Surprise!

And who knows, some of the minor characters just might have bigger roles in the books?

What's Next? Messages from Mike and Aaron!

Happy New Year!

Well, our story is complete and the feedback has been wonderful. Thank you all so much for listening and for all the kind emails you've sent in. We're so glad you've enjoyed our little "science fairy tale" as much as we enjoyed making it.

Now that it's done, we'll be spending quite a bit of time editing and polishing our audio drama for future dino loving kids (and adults) to enjoy. And you're probably wondering what's next? Well, Aaron and I prepared audio messages to fill you in.

Aaron's World will be shifting gears a bit. We'll always be available as a podcast but with new ways to listen. AND we'll be exploring an exciting new format which may help us share our little story with an even larger audience. Now THAT would be awesome!

Take a listen for all the details!

And be sure to check out our updated "Contacts" section of this website. We've added social media information for those of you wanting to keep up with our "real-life" family adventures.

As always, we hope you'll share our podcast with others who might enjoy an adventure on the Science Frontier!

Final Episode on Winter Solstice! (Dec 21st)

Final Episode on Winter Solstice! (Dec 21st)

Wow! This final episode has really been tough. It's the longest episode yet! But I'm half way done. Woohoo!!!

Fortunately, the first half I've just finished is the BIG climactic scene. That's what made it so difficult to produce. Now, I'm onto the second half which is much easier. It wraps up all the loose ends and completes the story arcs for our characters.

If all goes well, I'm hoping to release this final episode on Winter Solstice (Dec 21st). Think of it as a prehistoric holiday gift from us, to you. We can't wait for you to hear it!

But once the final episode comes out, stay subscribed!  We plan on having some EXTRA content for you to enjoy. Once the story is complete, we'll be putting together some special episodes to answer your questions, discuss our story, provide background on characters, discuss our story arcs, and perhaps even share some secret portions of the story that didn't make it into our episodes. If you have questions you'd like us to answer, send them to podcast@mydogrocket.com.

And of course, we'll share how we'll be keeping ourselves busy in 2016.

So, hang in there!

New Episode Coming Soon

New Episode Coming Soon! 

I'm still working on Ep 49. It's a big one so it's taking a little longer than expected. It should be ready to release at the end of next week. Then, it's time to get started on the HUGE Ep 50. You can expect that one in early December.

To help you wait... 

Aaron is a big Minecraft fan AND has been teaching himself video production. So, he and a friend decided to get some practice by starting a YouTube gaming channel called, The Miniacs

It's just for fun and not related to Aaron's World. But he'd love to have you check it out. You'll definitely recognize his Minecraft name. Feel free to say hi to him in the comments. Enjoy!

New Episode Almost Ready

Episode 46 is almost done.

This episode has been really tough. Aaron and I listened to it today and agreed that it needs a little more work. A few spots could use a little extra awesome. It's the episode that launches our characters into our 3-Part Finale so it needs to be just right.

I hope to have it out by the end of the weekend. I'm REALLY anxious to be done! In case you didn't know...

I'm super scared of snakes. Ewwww!!!
