My kids are OBSESSED with the Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd. We download the podcast from iTunes and my kids listen to them a million times each. (They are currently in season 6. ) It's about a genius scientist who has created two time and space travel devices. His evil nemesis has stolen one of the time and space machines and travels back in time to collect historical objects that he sells on ebay (such as Molly Pitcher's pitcher). Dr. Floyd and his robot, Chips, follow them and try to stop them. The cast also includes a sock named Fidgert (Colin's personal favorite). They also have fun guests like Jeffrey Tambor, Dr. Demento and Don Novello. It's very clever and funny and prompts awesome questions at our house such as:
What's Prince Albert in a Can?
What does Rocky have to do with stairs?
What does foreboding mean?
Occasionally they'll answer voicemails and on each episode they repeat their voicemail number: 818-332-3053. One day at school the secretary asked Jonah for his phone number. His answer? "818-332-3053." That's right, he doesn't know his phone number, but he knows Dr. Floyd's.
