Senator Carstairs ,

More and More Please

Wow - marrying the best improv comedians with retro sci-fi radio was just MADE for me. Dr. Carstairs is an enigmatic figure, so I just wanted to mention him.

The material is weird, angular and inspiring. Sometimes when I am on the subway I visualize the other TTC riders as characters, or people in the audience at the SoCap theatre and it makes it that much better.

Well done, folks. ps. Why'cha get a lady involved so it's not so broey ? Just a suggestion, though, I'm not bringing you down with this I know. Also maybe once a season you talk about Illusionoid. The messages and warnings from moon base are too cryptic for me.

Some other stuff:
- The characters don't eat very often. They ordered food in 'Smile' but didn't eat anything.
- There's some kind of bias towards weird experiments, and claustrophobic settings like subs, space capsules and such. How about having characters walking through wide open fields ?

Anyway, great stuff thanks.
