A series of Origin Stories read by your host, Peter Crow

I thought it would be appropriate to initiate my first podcast by reading a series of Beginnings.

Whether or not you have kids, imagine a curious 5-year-old approaching you and asking sincerely, hopefully where the universe came from. Do you feel equipped? Are you going to feed them the same old line that you were given by your science teacher? Or will you rise to this occasion of mythic proportions?
