Timestorm, a fiction podcast about twelve-year-old twins who travel in time to find Puerto Rico’s true history, will launch its third season. 


The Timestorm podcast series—named one of the top trendsetting podcasts from 2020 by School Library Journal—follows the Ventura twins from Newark, New Jersey, who are yanked into another dimension where they meet a distant cousin who gives them an extraordinary mission: witness, find, and remember overlooked figures and events from their culture’s past. 

Also new this season for audiences, Timestorm has launched a series of Apple Maps guides allowing listeners to explore the paths that the Ventura twins take throughout the series. Learn more about the first guide—Explore NJ’s Lenape Trailhere. Additional map guides will be released throughout season three.

“We’re proud to present the third season of Timestorm in partnership with the TRAX podcast network from PRX, which offers free high-quality, inclusive content for preteens and teens,” said Dania Ramos, Timestorm’s creator and member of the Cocotazo Media creative team. “In season three, the Ventura twins hunt for sacred artifacts in a thrilling cross-island adventure that takes them from the ruins of a lighthouse to towering heights in a tropical rainforest.”
