Happy Place

I’ve never found a science fiction podcast before which captures the Radiophonic magic I used to feel listening to Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy radio series as a kid… until now! Of course DoaSA is much smaller in scale, but it really truly exploits the potential of audio to be totally transporting. I love it.

Thoughtful and fun

Wonderful naturalistic acting, interesting progression. You need this podcast in your life!

More please

When I thought I had reached the end of the season I panicked! What happens next. Then I found episode 6. Sweet relief.
Utterly swish storytelling and character development!
