Janus Descending

A daily Audio Drama, Arts and Performing Arts podcast
 44 people rated this podcast
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.

I wasn't sure how the story could work with the strange order, but the creative team chose the best possible way to enjoy the story and I was happy I listened to it the way it was intended! Great acting, great writing, solid sound design!
A Phenomenal and Eerie Tale Easily one of the best audio dramas i have listened to, and I have heard quite a few! The non linear story telling, background ambience, and sfx really step this story up that just captivates you with a tale you can't look(Hear?) away from. If you're looking for a great horror sci fi tale then this will not disappoint. It builds incredibly well, giving you just enough information to let your mind take flight with so many "What ifs" and right when you think you solved it the story gets weirder and takes you for a twist. Get ready to hop in your envirosuit and check out some dead aliens because this is a story you won't forget!
This show gave me *all the feels* and I loved it! I mean, I hated it, but I also loved it so so so so so much! Limited series are often amazing in their containment, and this show is up there with the best of them!
