Dinotopia: World Beneath, Episode 11

It's Tuesday, time for Episode 11 of the serialized audio dramatization of Dinotopia: The World Beneath. Edit: The track was only available for one week, but see below where you can find out more about the entire podcast.

The dino-strutters emerge in the Rainy Basin, which is inhabited by tyrannosaurs.

ZBS producer Tom Lopez extends the story of the illustrated book into the audio dimension, adding layers of mood and emotion, greatly enhanced by the composer Tim Clark.

The Christian Science Monitor called this production "A dazzling soundscape that does full justice to Gurney’s wondrous lost world… perfect family listening.”

Episode 12 arrives in a week. Each short episode will only be live online for one week, and then it will disappear.

If you'd like to purchase the full two-hour World Beneath podcast right now and hear all fifteen episodes back to back in a feature-length production, check out The World Beneath at ZBS Foundation website for the MP3 download. It's also available as a CD.

And evidently the tyrannosaurs of the Rainy Basin are not fond of mechanical dinosaurs

Yeah, exactly. We used to live on a street where there was this Rottweiler that chased after our car and tried to bite the tires. I guess the T.rex/strutter scene is sort of a version of that.

Dogs will be dogs.

I was laughing when Lee Crabb tried to explain what a Jonah was to the styracosaur. In my head I saw the styracosaur tilting its head in confusion, and its face was completely clueless as to what Crabb was talking about.
