BEST PODCAST EVER

Started listening to this podcast a couple years ago and had no clue what i was getting into... i was delighted to find such a great, unique story! Starship Iris really shakes up the sci-fi space drama genre with a cast of cool, nuanced characters all with competing motivations (and unique voices) plus an anti-imperialist plot line involving alien linguistics, shady government cover-ups, and queer romance—what’s not to love??

Super excited to see where this show goes!
