Jack Flanders in Orchids & Moonbeams

Tune in on Fri­day for the next episode of anoth­er excit­ing radio ser­i­al from our friends at ZBS Foun­da­tion: “Orchids & Moon­beams” - fea­tur­ing that sea­soned eso­teric tourist, Jack Flanders.

This adven­ture con­sists  of three half-hour episodes, broad­cast at noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT on Fri­days. Now read on dot, dot, dot…



Some­where in the trop­ics, yet anoth­er beach resort is being built. The devel­op­ers are plan­ning to put a road through a val­ley the locals con­sid­er sacred: they believe a pow­er­ful Nature Spir­it dwells there. As the devel­op­ers bull­doze into the jun­gle, and the warm trop­i­cal rains con­tin­ue, the jun­gle is sprout­ing up every­where. At Maria’s Cafe, chairs are sprout­ing leaves, tables are grow­ing roots, vines are creep­ing over the counter, and orchids are cling­ing to the walls. One morn­ing, Mojo finds a snake coiled up on his chair, “Oops, looks like this seat’s been taken.”

Jaguars are seen strolling through town, while spi­ders, igua­nas, tree frogs, etc., are hop­ping and crawl­ing every­where. There’s even a par­rot infes­ta­tion. In the local bars, scar­let macaws snatch pret­zels out of patron’s fin­gers. Mean­while, Jack, Mojo, and Clau­dine are attempt­ing to prove the Nature Spir­it not only exists, she may have just begun to “even the score.”
