Alabaster Zero, Fred the Frog, and Abacus P. Grumbler are stuck in a swamp next to an erupting volcano. Can they save the people of the swamp even without magic?
Lessons include: with imagination and hard work, we can accomplish almost anything; sometimes we all need to be willing to accept help from others.
The dangers in our imaginary swamp were inspired by the disastrous bushfires in Australia, as well as the Taal Volcano ash eruption in the Philippines. For our 150th episode we’re encouraging you to look out at What Is World and, if you have the means and the time, find some way to help. Even if you’re listening to this story in 2030, you can make a difference in the world with your engagement and support. The Australian Red Cross or the Philippine Red Cross could be a great place to start in 2020 (our media present).
