Elena Fernández Collins, Radio Drama Revival

Short and snappy and darkly humorous. There are no bones made about the horrors of deep space and flaws of humanity, but it's all done through captivating and extreme absurdism.

Podcast Maniac

Take my word for it when I say that episode one was great!
