The Ventura twins are yanked into another dimension where they meet a distant cousin who gives them an extraordinary mission: travel through time to preserve their culture’s true history. Alexa and Beni visit three continents across the span of five centuries, meeting people who have left their mark on Puerto Rican heritage. In the twenty-first century, the twins navigate school, friendship, and family while keeping their time-traveling quests a secret.

A celebration of Puerto Rican history that makes it fun and engaging! The performances are outstanding, the writing is accessible and witty, and the sound design is incredible! Everyone should listen to this!
I remember the PBS kid's show 'Liberty's Kids' which tried to teach kids about the American Revolution AND that observing the history/world around them was important, and I remember thinking 'Why aren't there more shows like this?' It's an important concept, and people should run with it.
In many ways, Timestorm does the same thing--but better in many ways. This is a show that teaches young people to value their history. It focuses on Puerto Rican heritage, too, which--as current events have emphasis--is completely ignored. So there's that lesson in there too.
Socially, it's an important podcast, but it's also well done and enjoyable. Great for adults who just like podcasts as well as kids.
