Life's not easy for Doug Eiffel, the communications officer for the U.S.S. Hephaestus Research Station, currently on Day 448 of its orbit around red dwarf star Wolf 359. He's stuck on a scientific survey mission of indeterminate length, 7.8 light years from Earth. His only company on board the station are stern mission chief Minkowski, insane science officer Hilbert, and Hephaestus Station's sentient, often malfunctioning operating system Hera. He doesn't have much to do for his job other than monitoring static and intercepting the occasional decades-old radio broadcast from Earth, so he spends most of his time creating extensive audio logs about the ordinary, day-to-day happenings within the station. But the Hephaestus is an odd place, and life in extremely isolated, zero gravity conditions has a way of doing funny things to people's minds. Even the simplest of tasks can turn into a gargantuan struggle, and the most ordinary-seeming things have a way of turning into anything but that. Wolf 359 is a radio drama in the tradition of Golden Age of Radio shows. Take one part space-faring adventure, add one part character drama, and mix in one part absurdist sitcom, and you get Wolf 359. New episodes are released every two weeks.

Really good

Found this series almost by accident. Binged through it far to quickly. Really enjoyed it. There are enough twists and suspense to really entertain. Well done.

Best audio drama period!

Very smart, funny, suspenseful, dramatic, action-filled, this show literally has everything. I’m actually a nerd for this show and will be buying the Price and Carter’s Deep Space Survival Procedure and Protocol Guide! I’m listening to the series for the second time and will continue listening to it. On the DL, I totally have a crush on Hera, and I love the character development for ALL the characters in the mini episodes. The very ONLY thing that annoys me is Loveless’ ASMR when she talks.. I literally hurt my ears at times and makes me cringe.. I love Loveless, but that really drives me nuts. All in all I rate this a 10 out of 5. I wish it turned into a tv show or at least had a follow up season, which I have sooooo many ideas for!!! My whole work crew has now listened to it and all love it.. just none as needy as me :)

Update: I’m on my 3rd time listening to this series.. I can’t stop! I seriously wish they’d somehow continue for another couple seasons or that they’d create a new series with the same cast. Also I have “Paradise Valley” by Honey and the Sting saved on my YouTube and it’s the #1 played song on my list. I don't want this show to be something that happened in the past.. I’M ADDICTED!!!!!
