Somehow it’s the first day of spring in deep space and Pod is full of joy! Jemima however isn’t feeling the happiness and once she discovers the true reality of her engineering qualifications and the threat of a fresh cake from Janet appearing in the supply relay; she feels even worse. However she won’t have to worry about any of that soon, as she is about to face forcible eviction from the Pod! Along with her cardboard toolkit...
In the darkest depths of deep space (somewhere just past Uranus) Jemima and Pod find themselves coming across an ad-field. Which it turns out is a bit similar to a minefield, but where as a minefield simply wants to kill you, an ad-field wants to instead beam adverts directly into your brain-hole to blow you away with irresistible bargains! It seems this strange occurrence is somehow linked to the gigantic ‘star cruiser’ which they’ve also discovered and is now broadcasting a distress signal from someone calling themselves ‘Captain Harriet Belafonte’ Families! For people who fail at choosing friends!
In the new episode of ‘True Crime Investigators UK’, we look at the tragic death of Michael Pritchard, a delivery driver for Business Express in the Staffordshire and Derbyshire area. Who on Wednesday the 12th November 1997, was murdered by a young man who tried to steal his van and in doing so, ran him over and killed him.The murder is still undetected and as John was originally the family liaison officer in the case; this is still an investigation that he often thinks about. We hope by looking further into what happened on that day and talking to Michael’s widow Hilary, we can tell you more about their story and ask you to help us catch the people responsible.
Welcome back to ‘Pod To Pluto’ our comedy scifi audiodrama about a lonely space engineer on her way to Pluto to go turn off a lightbulb.

Starting by redesigning the Pod, buying a little nanobot and in five seconds they’re going to install a new DLC voice pack! This isn’t going to end well, is it?
