New Episode Update & Something Fun

We're still working on the next episode. The "real" world has kept us pretty busy this past week. But I hope to get back to editing over the weekend and have it out to all of you early next week. To make it up to those of you hoping to have the new episode today... here's a video of me "electrocuting" (tickling) Aaron. :-)

Mammoth is Mopey and Needs Your Support

Mammoth is Mopey is an adorable children's book project that we're happy to support.

We LOVE sharing creative projects for kids that promote science and fuel imaginations. Our friends David Orr and his wife Jennie are doing just that with their Prehistoric Alphabet Children's Book called...

      Mammoth is Mopey (via Indigogo)

David and Jennie hope this book will be the first of several children's books to come. We certainly hope so! And we intend to make sure our book shelf is stocked with a copy of every children's book these two produce. We've placed our support for this project and hope some of you will enjoy doing the same.

You can learn more about David, dinosaurs, science, and his wonderful artwork at his blog.

Thank you, David and Jennie for all the love and work that went into this project. We suspect little Mammoth won't be so mopey once s/he finds a home on children's bookshelves everywhere!

New Episode Soon...

New episode is almost ready.

Normally, I have new episodes out at the end of the month. Which would be today. But March has been a SUPER busy month and we're a little behind schedule. But don't worry. You'll have the new episode by the end of the week. We just need a little extra time.

And to thank you for being so patient, I've included a cute picture of Aaron's hamsters. :-)

Happy 5 Year Anniversary!

Happy 5 Year Anniversary!

5 years ago today we released the very first episode of Aaron's World and our podcasting adventure began.

Although Aaron and the podcast have grown significantly since we began, I've done my best to keep the original story intact. For me, it's a precious snapshot of Aaron's childhood. Although certainly edited and polished, our little audio-drama will end as it was originally imagined. And we can't wait for everyone to hear it.

It still amazes me to know that there are many kids out there who have been with us from the beginning and have grown up right along with Aaron. Thanks for sticking with us and being part of our extended "podcast" family.

Now, back to work on Episode 43!

Production Update - Extra Recording

What are we up to these days? 

Well, we're busy working on the next episode. Plus, we're doing a bit of extra recording. Several of Aaron's friends have generously agreed to record lines to help us fill minor roles and background chatter needed for upcoming episodes. It's been fun to dust off the microphone one last time.

This week, we recorded with Ruby. You won't hear her until our finale. But when you do, she'll be the one piloting a very BIG ship!

Of course, the biggest question we get is... WHO is the 4th INO User?!? The answer to that is complicated. You'll understand why as our story unfolds.

Season 4 Update

Season 4 is Coming Soon!

After our Season 3 cliffhanger, we know you're anxious to see how Aaron and Delaney get themselves out of the mess they're in.

Well, don't worry. You won't have to wait long. We'll launch Season 4 right after the holidays. And when we do, we'll be traveling to the surface to see how the events of the finale unfolded from Delaney's perspective.

The stage is set for the final season of our story. It's going to be a wild ride with plenty of secrets to reveal and science to explore! We can't wait for you to see how it all ends.

As a little treat, here is a Season 4 collage to help set the mood for our final season. We make no claims to the artwork. That belongs to talented artists who are kind enough to share their work online. We simply use it for inspiration.

Happy 11th Birthday, Aaron!

Happy Birthday, Aaron!

Our time travelin' kid turns 11 today.  In honor of this special day, we thought we'd share his "real life" time traveling...

This is a picture of Aaron at age 6 when he started Aaron's World and at age 11 when he finished. He's grown a lot! Just like his story.

Thank you all for joining us all these years and growing up right along with him.

If you'd ever like to say hi, you can always email him at podcast@mydogrocket.com

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! 

Aaron decided on a more "classic" costume this year. It looks great!

I'm still working on the Season 3 finale episode and it's almost done. Unfortunately, a family vacation (to the Grand Canyon) and a bad cold got me a little behind. But don't worry, the episode should be ready in just a few more days. Hang in there!

For those that celebrate it... have a fun and safe Halloween!
