Timestorm is a great audio drama about two kids going on time travel adventures throughout the history of Puerto Rico. This is my review.

I’m here to share another audio drama podcast I thought people around here might enjoy. Timestorm follows brother and sister Beni and Alexa Ventura from Newark, New Jersey. Things are going pretty ordinary until they find themselves pulled into a storm in time, a timestorm if you will. They find themselves face-to-face with their previously unknown cousin Horacio, who also happens to be the protagonist of Take Back Time, Beni's favorite comic. Horacio and his AI friend Atabey, named for the Earth goddess of Taino Mythology, have a task for the twins. Alexa and Beni will be traveling through time to witness key moments in the history of Puerto Rico, and then bring back artifacts relating to those events. Together they will witness, find, and remember.

I’m a big believer that a good audio drama can be enjoyed regardless of its target demographic. Timestorm is aimed at kids, but you don’t need to be a kid to enjoy it. I really enjoyed the focus inn Puerto Rican history. We don’t really learn to much about Puerto Rico in mainland America. So it was incredibly delightful to learn about all the different figures from Puerto Rican history. I also enjoyed that the show didn’t neglect Alexa and Beni’s lives in the present day.

A major theme in Timestorm is highlighting people who the historical record tends to ignore. The primary theme for season 1 is women in Puerto Rican history. For example, the first adventure sees the twins going back to 1838 to meet Maestra Celestina Cordero. She founded the fist girl's school in Puerto Rico, and was a strong advocate for women's education. She was also a black woman, and faced opposition because of her race as well as her gender. Her brother Rafael ran a boy's school, and is considered the Father of Public Education in Puerto Rico. As such, Rafael Cordero tends to overshadow his sister's contributions to public education. Hopefully, Celestina will be getting more attention thanks to Timestorm.

A few weeks ago I shared an audio drama podcast called Timestorm that teaches kids (and adults) about the history of Puerto Rico. I’m here to say that season two is out in full, and it’s better than ever.

So, a a few weeks back I shared an audio drama podcast called Timestorm which followed two kids exploring the history of Puerto Rico. Well, I’m here today to share that season two is out in full, and so is my review of it.

Just a brief recap. Timestorm follows twins Alexa and Beni Ventura as they go on adventures throughout the history of Puerto Rico to witness historical events, find artifacts, and remember the past. Timestorm is aimed at kids, but adults can enjoy it too.

This season, the twins will be going on adventures beyond just Puerto Rico. They’ll have adventures in Senegal and Spain, as well as pre-Spanish Contact Puerto Rico, as they search for the beat of three motherlands.

Timestorm wowed me with an amazing first season, and season two shows that the series is set to just keep getting better. I was hoping we’d get an episode about the Taino people, the people living in Puerto Rico before the Spanish. And that’s two of the episodes we got this season. I was also pleasantly surprised that we got a couple episodes set in Senegal. Africa tends to get ignored in time travel media, especially ones aimed at kids. As such, it was nice that Timestorm decided to actually utilize African history. The big theme this season is about how Puerto Rican culture is the result of the mixing of Indigenous, African, and European culture. I was also quite pleased with the present day episodes, and how they contributed to the storyline. I can’t wait to see what season three has in store for us.

If you haven’t listened to season one...you should probably do that, or else you’ll be very confused.

Have you listened to Timestorm? If so, what did you think?

[History] The Early Years of Puerto Rico Under American Ownership: A Playground of Economic Slavery & Dehumanization

Puerto Rico stands today as one of the more curious examples of the particularly long term effects of old world colonialism and economic oppression, from several centuries past right up into the present day in its current state as an American "possession". Whether indigenous, mixed race, or otherwise the varied peoples that make up Puerto Rico today hail from a several hundred year ancestral legacy of near constant struggle for not only a core cultural identity but often basic freedoms and independence as well. First, in the face of hundreds of years of cold blooded misrule and blatant exploitation by Spanish colonists and later under the more methodical parentage of the United States.

See also: King Ferdinand's letter to the Taino-Arawak Indians / A brief yet insightful look at the language and intentions of Colonizers in the old world

This particularly aggressive and violent form of Christianity that arrived with the Spanish, along with the diseases for which the natives had no immunity, as well as a taste for warfare which they had little desire or ability to match quickly led to the annihilation of the majority of the Taino/Arawak peoples of the region. The ancestors of these people, and the many that arrived after their tragic downfall, continue to live on this island and those around it today. Still they exist within a sort of geopolitical limbo where their lands are valued only as strategic military possessions and resources to some larger Colonial entity.

It is no exaggeration to say the parallels between the U.S./Native nation relationship and the U.S./Puerto Rico relationship are many. However, Puerto Rico has a unique relationship with the United States, including particulars that cannot be likened to that of the Native nations. Likewise, each Native nation has its own unique relationship with the United States based on particular treaty agreements and negotiations as well as their geographical locations and a variety of other factors.

Whereas the acquisition of Puerto Rico can be boiled down by many as the "spoils of war" the Native nations however are more accurately described as the results of genocide, conquest, and systematic oppressions. While this also occurred on the island, the core difference is that the bulk of the killing and conquest had been perpetrated by the Spanish hundreds of years prior. Meanwhile the attempt
