And of course, a link to the source, the short story.
Video description: Trailer for “Astral Andie Is Angry.” 42 seconds. Title card with the words “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Science Mystery” is displayed at top. Story tagline is displayed at bottom. Tagline reads, “Andie Ogami is hired as a spy by a wealthy family because of her ability to astral project.” The title card and tagline fade. Digital drawing. A woman, seen from waist up, lying down on a cot near a window with closed blinds. The view is angled so her head is at top right. She wears a long sleeve sweater over a collared shirt. Her short hair lies at her left side. Her right hand lies over her stomach. Her left hand at her waist. Her eyes are closed and her face is expressionless. A glowing waking version of her face with brows and mouth drawn down appears vertically above her neck as if the ghostly face has risen from the sleeping face. The original image is a horizontal rectangle. The format is made square with borders above and below that repeat or blur out the original image. A watermark of the word “Storyfeather” appears along the left edge of the cot. Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: “It was during those first few weeks that I learned what my real title was, the word that my boss used. When she first spoke the word, I misheard and thought she said ‘protector.’ I got a little full of myself thinking that maybe my boss intended to use my talents for something different, more noble than spying, after all. But I wasn’t, and am not, a protector. My name is Andie Ogami, and I’m a Projector.” Story title appears at top with animation of the image zooming outward in blurry flashes. Website URL appears at bottom center throughout and fades as text box appears at center displaying the words, “Listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher, and so on. Or listen on my Podcast page at storyfeather.com.”

“How do you feel?” the technician asked. She was holding one of those astral scanners toward my head.
I blinked a few times. “Strange…uh, disoriented.” My lips felt dry. I licked them and glanced over at the chair where I’d left my handbag. I had some balm in one of the front pockets.
“Here,” the technician said, handing me a pad and pen. “Write down everything you remember in as much detail as you can provide. Remember your training, all five senses in one section, emotions in an-other. If you have any thoughts and impressions and speculations, you can record them in the last section.”
What’s the Word (that inspired the story)?

I mentioned in the outro that I needed additional help brainstorming this story. So I rolled my Story Cubes.
(I’m not being paid to endorse these or anything. I just really like them, and actually use them.)
