Ladies and gentlemen, we interrupt our regularly scheduled story sharing podcast to bring you a special bulletin from My Baby Monsters News. At twenty minutes before bedtime, Professor Josie of the Baby Monster Shooting Star Planetarium in Denmark, reported observing several explosions on the planet Mars, which could mean only one thing... aliens are on the way. To help put you in the mood for this fun little alien invasion, please enjoy the following special, out-of-this-world edition of the my baby monsters children's storytelling podcast.

The history of "The War of the Worlds" This classic story of alien invasion predates man learning how to fly. The story was imagined and written in 1898 (over 100 years ago) by science-fiction writer H.G. Wells. The War of the Worlds was then turned into a radio program by Orsen Well's on October 30, 1938... unfortunately many listeners did not realize it was only a Halloween special... so many listeners were naturally frightened, believing that Martians were really invading Earth. Since that time, four War of the Worlds films have been made, including the classic film in 1953 and a more recent version by Steven Steven Spielberg in 2005. And of course, there is the classic My Baby Monsters Podcast by Josie and her dad in 2006. Listen to original radio broadcast (parental discretion advised) The 1938 War of the Worlds radio program is now in the public domain, meaning that you can enjoy it for free. Before listening to it with young children, please be advised that the aliens in the Mercury Theatre on the Air's "The War of the Words" don't play nice, so use your own discretion. Listen to The War of the World original radio program (right-click to download) Have fun, -- Josie (and dad)
