About This List

This is a list of sci-fi shows which not only make you think but also make you think twice :)
  1. The crew of the MRS Hyacinth rush to survey a Jovian asteroid, hoping it is worth enough to ransom the crew of their sister ship - the Corvus - before the deadline hits.
  2. Life's not easy for Doug Eiffel, the communications officer for the U.S.S. Hephaestus Research Station, currently on Day 448 of its orbit around red dwarf star Wolf 359. He's stuck on a scientific survey mission of indeterminate length, 7.8 light years from Earth. His only company on board the station are stern mission chief Minkowski, insane science officer Hilbert, and Hephaestus Station's sentient, often malfunctioning operating system Hera. He doesn't have much to do for his job other than monitoring static and intercepting the occasional decades-old radio broadcast from Earth, so he spends most of his time creating extensive audio logs about the ordinary, day-to-day happenings within the station. But the Hephaestus is an odd place, and life in extremely isolated, zero gravity conditions has a way of doing funny things to people's minds. Even the simplest of tasks can turn into a gargantuan struggle, and the most ordinary-seeming things have a way of turning into anything but that. Wolf 359 is a radio drama in the tradition of Golden Age of Radio shows. Take one part space-faring adventure, add one part character drama, and mix in one part absurdist sitcom, and you get Wolf 359. New episodes are released every two weeks.
  3. Light-years away from a dying Earth, humanity’s last hope rides aboard the Dellingr, a ship on course to a distant planet to start life anew. Follow the five crew members on board, far away from all they knew and loved, tasked with a mission that is falling apart in unexpected, strange, and horrific ways. Are all the classic sci-fi’s wrong? Is love really the answer to everything? Or was this all doomed from the start?
  4. RELATIVITY is a science-fiction serial about a man marooned in space and the woman on Earth who struggles to keep him alive. Find out more at www.relativitypodcast.com!
  5. Seren is sent away from her home, on a mission to terraform a new planet. An eight part series following her journey across the stars, as she deals with the reasons that led to her departure.
  6. A Sci Fi series about a man stuck alone for 20 years, taking care of sleeping passengers on a ship to colonize a new planet. Created by David Magadan Part 2 available now
  7. DERELICT is a narrative podcast experience from award winning science fiction author J. Barton Mitchell that features a host of unlikely characters trying to unlock the secrets of an abandoned spaceship in the far reaches of space. While its prequel season, FATHOM, follows a group of scientists investigating a frightening mystery that's been discovered on the bottom of the ocean...setting the stage for everything to come.
  8. A sci-fi audio drama told in transmissions between Houston and NASA's abandoned High Altitude Venus Operational Carrier (HAVOC). When radio operator Noah Anderson receives a distress call from Dr. Avery Beck, the pair must unravel the mystery behind the ghost ship - before it unravels them.
  9. A limited series, science fiction/horror audio drama podcast, follows the arrival of two xenoarcheologists on a small world orbiting a binary star. But what starts off as an expedition to survey the planet and the remains of a lost alien civilization, turns into a monstrous game of cat and mouse, as the two scientists are left to face the creatures that killed the planet in the first place. Told from two alternating perspectives, Janus Descending is an experience of crossing timelines, as one character describes the nightmare from end to beginning, and the other, from beginning to the end.
  10. A science fiction audio drama about the first manned missions to Mars.
  11. Joseph - The Audio Drama Series. Season 1: The Revenge of Opus. Joseph is an Ear Epic Production where we make movies for your mind.

  13. When an experiment in a time much like our own goes horribly awry, Dr. Sally Grissom finds herself stranded in the past and entrenched in the activities of a clandestine branch of the US government. Grissom and her team quickly learn that there's no safety net when toying with the fundamental logic of the universe.
  14. The first audio drama from Tor Labs and Gideon Media, Steal the Stars is a gripping noir science fiction thriller in 14 episodes: Forbidden love, a crashed UFO, an alien body, and an impossible heist unlike any ever attempted - scripted by Mac Rogers, the award-winning playwright and writer of the multi-million download The Message and LifeAfter.
