[Video description: Trailer for “Inseparate.” 48 seconds. Digital drawing. A poster of twin men conjoined along the top half of their heads, so that they share an eye, but have separate noses and mouths. They are seen from knees up and hold their arms out in a flourish. They wear matching coats that flare just above their knees. Above them is a banner that reads “Two-Man.” Below them are written the following sentences on separate lines: “They see into other worlds. They see into other times. They also make wood furniture.”  Below these lines is another text box that reads “Fortune Tellers.” Title card with the words “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Fantastic Mystery” is displayed at top. Story tagline is displayed at bottom. Tagline reads, “A student fascinated with conjoined twins uncovers the lives of two brothers whom history only remembers as fortune tellers called Two-Man.”  The title card and tagline fade.  Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: “While they lamented of their money woes at a tavern one evening, the barkeep told them that with their unique condition, they might earn some extra money putting on a spectacle act, like in the traveling circuses. The brothers had no desire to join a traveling circus, but they did consider the advice, and they did discuss how they might be able to make use of their unique talents to supplement their business, perhaps even to gain new customers. Not too long after that, the boys began to ply their two trades. They built and sold fine wood furniture, and they told people’s fortunes.” Website URL appears at bottom center throughout and fades as text box appears over image displaying the words, “Listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher, and so on. Or listen on my Podcast page at storyfeather.com.” Story title appears at top.]

Episode Released: 24 March 2022

EXCERPT:

I didn’t know much about conjoined twins, but when the professor in my embryology class mentioned the accident in cell division that led to the phenomenon, I remembered my first dream in life. Before I dreamt of becoming a Noble-prize-winning biochemist. Before I dreamt of meeting the love ofmy life. Before I dreamt about traveling the world. Before I dreamt about having a dog. When I was just a kid.

I remembered wishing I were a twin.
