Hope it launches soon
The trailer sounds great, and it seems to be family friendly. I hope it launches soon so my kids can listen in the car...
Great heroine, zany characters, wonderful sound design, and tongue-in-cheek cultural references and commentary! Had me grinning and giggling. Delightful for children and adults alike.
My 6yo loves it! I love that it's giving me an opening to introduce him to golden age radio serials...
