Calling all sci-fi and fantasy freaks! Stories Plantarum is a new podcast all about the plants that populate the fictional worlds of the human imagination and real-life plants that seem out of this world. 

Each episode begins with a tale of a fabulous fictional plant and then introduces an actual plant that shares some of its fantastical features. Fictional plants are featured throughout all kinds of media including film, television, comics, literature, mythology, video games, board games, and anywhere else they can sink their roots into. These fictional plants may seem unrealistic at first, however engaging with mystifying plants in our real lives is often times no further away than a few steps from home. Stories Plantarum seeks to foster a deeper appreciation for the fascinating plants we share our planet with. 

Beginning in October, new episodes will be released bi-monthly. The first four episodes are out now, catch up on all of the past episodes on Soundcloud, Spotify, or Apple Podcasts. Episode transcripts and graphics will be posted here on community.plantae.org. 

Keep up to date with new episodes by subscribing on your favorite podcast service and by following Stories Plantarum on Twitter and Facebook @PlantarumPod. New episodes and transcripts will also be announced here, so keep an eye out on your Plantae dashboard!

The transcripts for the first four episodes will be posted in the next few days, followed by a brand new episode next week. Stay tuned for more tales from the weird and wacky world of plants!
