[Video description: Trailer for “The Serpent Who Sang Like a Bird.” 45 seconds. Digital drawing. Three animals sitting on branches amid vines. At left a colorful snake is coiled over a thick branch. To the right, a monkey. And between and just above the two, a bird is perched on a thinner branch. The monkey, the bird, and the branches are all colored gray. The vines are green. Watermark of the word “storyfeather” lies over the image. Title card with the words “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Fable” is displayed at top. Story tagline is displayed at bottom. Tagline reads, “One monkey’s mischief alters the course of four other animals’ lives.” The title card fades and tagline recedes. Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: “Next he visited the blue-and-black bird. ‘Good morning, monkey,’ the bird said, stretching her wings. ‘How do you do?’ ‘Ho there,’ the monkey said. He frowned and cocked his head. ‘I am well, but you must not be, for your egg looks a bit off this morning.’ The bird-mother cheeped at the monkey as she hopped off her egg. She examined the egg, checking it for cracks or damage, peering at it with her sharp eyes. The monkey held his breath. ‘My egg is well, monkey,’ the bird-mother said. ‘Perhaps you are the one who is ‘a bit off.’”” Website URL appears at bottom center throughout and fades at the end as the image blurs and 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.”]
