Exoplanets with Ashley Walker & Marc Evan Jackson On this episode of REACH  Brian and Meredith ask the questions "What is an Exoplanet?" and "What does #BlackinAstro mean?" of expert Astrochemist and Planetary Scientist Ashley Walker.

This week on REACH: A Space Podcast for Kids we present the first episode of the new season of fellow Soundsington Media show Unspookable entitled "Book of the Dead.".  (Recommended for ages 8+) Unspookable is a family friendly look at the histories and mysteries behind your favorite scary stories, myths and urban legends. Each week host Elise Parisian discusses such topics as Bloody Mary, Charlie Charlie, and Ouija Boards to find the stories behind the scares.   Unspookable - Book of the Dead What do you think of when you hear the word mummy? Some of us may imagine a bandaged figure, arms outstretched, stumbling through the desert, but did you know that mummification of the dead served another purpose? Mummification is just a small part of a sacred ritual of Going Forth By Day as captured in something we call The Egyptian Book of the Dead. But this is no book at all as we will find out on this episode of Unspookable. Host: Elise ParisianWritten by: Ellenor Riley-ConditCreated, Produced, Edited by: Nate DuFortMusic Direction and Composition: Jesse Case: https://www.jessecasemusic.com/Logo by: Natalie Khuen http://nataliek.myportfolio.comYou can find Unspookable on Twitter and Instagram at:https://twitter.com/ImUnspookablehttps://www.instagram.com/unspookablepodcast/Unspookable is a production of Soundsington Media committed to making quality programing for young audiences and the young at heart.
