EPISODE 100!!!! We're celebrating by trying something new. This is our first ever original fiction episode on Power Your Story.
Our producers collaborated on this story about climate change, heroism, and adventure through improvisation based on a comedy writing workshop with writer, media producer, podcaster, and comedian Lisa Orkin.
The year is 2025. The news is that a massive climate change event is imminent that will submerge the entire earth under water. Will Bye the Cool Science Dude has hired adventurer Captain Jonas to go on an underwater adventure to find the Lost Kingdom of Jalen-A-Lions. Legend has it that they hold a secret treasure that will save us all. Science students Kevin and Ashley show up to help with their secret skill. Our four heroes will face great danger as they try to save the earth from drowning.

Each season features a new group of student producers under the mentorship of producer, Andrea Klunder of The Creative Impostor Studios, creating personal journals, interviews, and discussions about the topics that matter most to us.
