[Video description: Trailer for “Humans: A Blorgnathian Delicacy?” 43 seconds. Title card with the words “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Science Fiction” is displayed at top. Story tagline is displayed at bottom. Tagline reads, “A man struggles with his decision to become a ‘Cultural Ambassador’ to a newly befriended alien species.” The title card and tagline fade. Digital drawing. At center, a human man, whose face and hands are dark (in silhouette). He stands, three-quarters profile facing right, in the middle of a giant plate that sits on a flat surface. His arms are raised to his sides and his face looks up. Just behind him, sitting at the table is a giant humanoid being seen from waist up to nostrils. The being has large scales over their chest and arms. Their hands rest on either side of the plate, left hand curled around a fork held upright, right hand curled around a knife held upright. The being’s mouth is open, a long knobby tapered tongue descending and curling behind the man on the plate. The being is wearing a hood. A watermark of the word “Storyfeather” appears over the image. Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: Yeah, I’ve come to terms with it. I’m not going offworld to do anything noble, like teach aliens how to speak human languages, or to plant trees, build houses, or pass out blankets and water during emergencies. I’m going offworld to go live in the house of some rich Blorgnathian who’ll spend the next five years licking my face.” Website URL appears at bottom center throughout and fades at the end as the story title appears at top. 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.”]
