I am blown away by the writing on Girl In Space. The script is engaging right from the very beginning, even with its single-narrator format in the first episode. The format of the podcast, which has X providing detailed explanations of her surroundings and circumstances into a recorder as the plot moves, is totally justified and grounded in X's personality, character, and background as a scientist. The loadedness of the details in Girl in Space are what really make it striking - you can tell a lot of thought and care but also skill and craft have gone into the story, descriptions, narratives, and dialogue that you're listening to. All the characters have their own stories and motivations and none feel like they're only there to advance X's narrative. The plot is rich and Sarah Rhea Werner's really fantastic with the way she chooses to hide or reveal information through the medium and control when we get to learn about things as an audience. The voice work is also fabulous!! Each character sounds distinct, and sharp, poignant commentary is studded with light-hearted jokes in a way that's delivered realistically and doesn't feel heavy-handed. I'm also a big fan of the soundtrack and especially the opening theme, which is my favourite opening theme of any podcast I've listened to so far. All in all, this audio drama is fabulous.
