Dinotopia: World Beneath Episode 4

It's Podcast Tuesday! This week we shared the newest episode of the serialized audio dramatization of Dinotopia: The World Beneath, but, sorry, it was only up for the week.

"Trust old Crabb," says Lee as they approach Black Fish Tavern by the light of the moon. 

Oriana proves herself to be a valuable member of the expedition. Producer Tom Lopez had fun elaborating the colorful characters.

The Podcast Series
This acoustic adventure was produced by Tom Lopez, mastermind of the ZBS Foundation, with an original music track by 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 5 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.

The Book
You can also order the original printed book from my web store and I'll sign it for you. (It ships via Media Mail within 24 hours of your order. US orders only for the book, please). The book is also available from Amazon in a 20th Anniversary Edition with lots of extras.

The Museum Exhibition is now on view
Many of these paintings are now on view at the Dinotopia exhibition at the Stamford Art Museum and Nature Center through May 25. I'll be in attendance at events on Feb. 28 and March 1. Gentleman-cartoonist Jared Cullum is organizing a gathering of GurneyJourneyers for sketching and coffee before or after the events on Sunday.

Read more about the events here on this blog.

Another word about the GJ sketchgroup! Jared found a diner near the museum grounds with breakfast food. On Sunday we'll probably either sketch near the train station first then head over, or go to the diner, get food and sketch there. Either way, we're planning to get the day started around 9 to 9.30ish, as long as the trains don't get delayed by unexpected weather (fingers crossed).

We will continue to leave comments on the blog with updates. You can also email Jared or me at jessica[*]jessicayang.org and we'll add you to the discussion thread.

Hey, Jessica,

Thanks, and please keep me posted about your diner plans in case I need to pass on the info to other folks who ask.

Hey- thanks for posting about it! and thanks for updating, Jessica!
I'll make a blog post on my site with details and my cell number and email are all on there as well... but here's the plan:
We'll catch up for a sketch session at a place called 'Uncles Deli' between 9-9:30am. I'll have extra drawing supplies and since this was brought on by a brand question I'll have 3 watercolor sets and extra paper if people want to try them, they're welcome to them. (Schmincke, Sennelier and Holbein)
We'll catch up, sketch, get some breakfast and then it's a 5min walk (via googlemaps)to the Museum and nature center. After 11 we can all walk over and check out the exhibition before the workshop begins.

Hi Mr Gurney,
I missed the episode last week because of school work, but I really want to hear it! I love your series so much! Will you ever put them up again? I've only ever missed episode 3! Please could you put it up for me? Just for a day?
