Introducing, Hostile Worlds

Hey folks! I wanted to tell you about another show we’ve been working on, called Hostile Worlds. It’s a documentary drama crossover show, set in space, which aims to take the humble science podcast and inject a bit of fun. We’ll be piloting our ship around the most dangerous places in the universe, trying not to freeze, boil, blow ourselves up or succumb to any of the other grisly fates that await any daring (or stupid) space explorer. If you’re into games and geekery, then this might be right up your street! You can subscribe on the Hostile Worlds website.

There, you’ll learn all the facts you’ll ever need to act as THE space exploration...
