Deep Blue Stars

By Lavender Lemonade Collective
In this biweekly exhibit at the Museum of Mysteries, Dr. Indigo Hale treads upon a mysterious island, inhabited by nothing more than crabs and cranes, where they must find a way to make it past impostor syndrome, the strange and wonderful loneliness, and the secret nature of their life's work: the Star Shell. You can find it just past the gift shop on the right, on your favorite podcasting app. Donated by Seraphim Feldman-Rodriguez and Opal Hale, and generously underwritten by The Lavender Lemonade Collective.

Announcements: Electromancy the Podcast and the Audio Verse Awards
Welcome to the Museum of Mysteries, My name is Orion Tuesday Ibert and I am the voice of the curator and the producer of Deep Blue Stars. I am delighted to tell you about a new audio exhibit: Electromancy the Podcast. Electromancy is a new audio fiction fantasy adventure podcast, which follows the story of Jenna, a teenage lightning mage (or electromancer) who, after hiding her powers for years, is finally discovered and forced to attend the Royal Institute for the Study of Sorcery. There she will find allies, enemies, mysteries, monsters, and intrigue. And you thought your high school was bad. Make sure to listen to the end to hear a trailer for this absolutely incredible show.  Additionally, Deep Blue Stars was nominated for the Audio Verse Awards! Voting is now available to the public and we would greatly appreciate it if you took a moment to check out the absolutely wonderful showcase of podcasts and to vote when you're ready! Check out https://audioverseawards.net/vote/ for more information. That link is also in our episode description.  And without further ado, here is the trailer for Electromancy. LEONARD:  Magic comes from the same place inside each of us. It’s only the form  it takes that is different. Feel it all throughout your body. Think  about it pulsing through you like blood. Focus on your heartbeat. Can  you feel it? [Loud electricity sound, then music starts] JENNA: Everyone’s been staring at me the whole time ELLIE: Well, yeah. Jenna, did they tell you…? JENNA: That I’m the most powerful lightning mage this place has seen in years? Yeah, professor Sumner maybe mentioned it. BRYNN: Brynn Tessek, umbramance class six, photomancer class five. I’m here to challenge you to a duel. ELLIE: Brynn, she’s brand new here, she doesn’t know the rules, and she doesn’t know any magic. BRYNN:  Exactly. That’s why everybody’s going to see that she’s not special.  Just because some machine said she was doesn’t mean she’s somebody. DEAN: So you're saying she’s had practice? KATYA: I’m saying she’s had training. I don’t think we’re looking at a late bloomer here at all. JENNA:  We’re kids, Ellie! A week ago I was a normal girl - three days ago I  didn’t think I’d ever have to worry about magic. All I want to do is  fade into the background and get this over with. NARRATION: Electromancy: A Fantasy Adventure Podcast. Check us out at www.electromancypod.com . [Music stops] BRYNN: You’re talking about me like I’m some kinda revolutionary. LEONARD: That would be a dangerous thing to say. And an even more dangerous thing to be.
