Presenting: VAST Horizon

40 minutes

Hi everyone!

This week, we're bringing you an episode of another of our favourite sci-fi podcasts: VAST Horizon, from the unstoppable team at Fool & Scholar Productions.

Episode 01: Stirred

Nolira is an agronomist tasked with establishing agriculture in a new solar system, but when she wakes up on a now- empty colony ship, the whole of her plan disappears. The ship has been set adrift, with numerous mission-critical problems requiring immediate attendance outside of her area of expertise.
