Timestorm is a very interesting podcast series with a unique story line, which is important for something you can't see and only hear. I also like that it's different from movies or cartoons and TV shows because it's a podcast, so you have to develop listening skills and create the scenes in your mind.

This podcast is about a man named Horacio who finds two cousins, Alex and Beni Ventura. Horacio teleports them to the Timestorm, a place where they're not on planet Earth, but they're somewhere back in time. They start to learn about why they were brought there in the first place. Once they learn, they have to wait till the right time, which turns out to be when hurricane Maria comes. Hurricane Maria is the hurricane that devastated the island of Puerto Rico in September 2017. When the hurricane comes, they got to the Timestorm to start their mission. They are given clothes to fit the time they are going to. Horacio tells them not to mess with anything because it would change time in the present if they did. If you want to hear the rest, go listen to the podcast to know what happens after.

My favorite episode is number three, because listeners start to discover cool things about the Timestorm. In this episode, Alexa and Beni go into the Timestorm and learn about how their clothes have superpowers, and how they can speak any language with their clothes. My favorite character is Beni because he is like me: a gamer, loves books and thinks everything is an adventure.

This podcast has 20 episodes, each is approximately 15 to 30 minutes long, which is the perfect amount of time. The voice-overs are excellent, because each voice fits each character. What is interesting about podcasts is that they are sound only, but this podcast is designed with such original high quality that you can imagine the scenario as if you're watching it on a screen.

The moral of this podcast is you can't always be the hero--Alex and Beni want to help the world from the storm, but then they realize that you can't stop storms. They want to change the world, but if they do it would mess with history and possibly ruin the world. It teaches them that not everyone can be a hero or help people. Just do the best you can, like they did.

I give Timestorm 5 out 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 18. Adults will enjoy this podcast as well. Timestorm can be found online at Trax:
