Dinotopia / World Beneath Podcast, Episode 14

Close your eyes, open your imagination, and travel to Dinotopia. It's time for Episode 14 of Dinotopia: The World Beneath. (edit: Sorry, the episode was only live online for a week.)

The explorers find the treasure of the lost city of Poseidos.

Who are the king and queen of the World Beneath?

This audio re-creation was produced by ZBS Productions. Audio producer Tom Lopez and composer Tim Clark created many layers of sound to make Dinotopia come alive to the ears.

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

The final episode 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 Museum Exhibition
Many of these paintings are now on view at the Dinotopia exhibition at the Stamford Art Museum and Nature Center through May 25.

(You could delete this comment) James, I am so sorry to ask you stupid questions but could ANY tee nut attach to ANY tripod?

Hi, HNK, that's OK. You would need a T-nut that would fit a 1/4 inch, 20-thread bolt. The "1/4-20" size is what you would ask for. That's standard for most all consumer cameras and tripods.

The T-nut is also measured by its depth, so that if you're holding a piece of plywood, the depth of the female threads should be the same thickness as the plywood.

Thank you so much! Sadly though, we at Russia don't have that kind of tee nut. Thank you again.

Another solution that I've done before: You can also braze a 1/4 20 brass hex nut onto a piece of copper.
