    Pod To Pluto: EP14 - Day Hard

    Pod To Pluto: EP14 - Day Hard

    Out in deep space on Christmas Eve; devious moon gangsters have seized control of the engineering vessel and taken Jemima hostage! All they want to do is drink a glass of festive Glühwein; steal back an object taken from the garbage belt and then blow-up the ship into a million pieces!
    But Pod has managed to escape detection and slipped away. Armed only with his Christmas-chicken and mastery of a game called ‘Donkey Balls’, Pod launches his own one-computer war against the moon gangsters to save the day!
    So join us for this Audiodrama, Audiofiction, Comedy Podcast, Christmas Special of ‘Pod To Pluto’, in which any similarity to the classic yuletide tale of ‘The Die Hard’ is purely intentional!

    Pod To Pluto: EP13 - Perfect Day

    Pod To Pluto: EP13 - Perfect Day

    In deep space, it’s cold, empty and vast. Which means you’re also very unlikely to find any other spacecraft in the outer reaches of the solar system. After all, nobody ever travels this far out from Earth unless they’ve been forced to because of some unfortunate employment offer which they now regret. So the chances of finding another identical space-pod, this far in deep space and then being attacked by it? Well, they’re astronomical!

    I guess Jemima and Pod should feel lucky then.

    The current season of ‘Pod To Pluto’ our audio fiction scifi sitcom comes to an end with this explosive new episode. New episodes start again in late 2019

    Pod To Pluto: EP12 - Those Were The Days

    Pod To Pluto: EP12 - Those Were The Days

    When you’re stuck in your office 24 hours a day for the next five years like space engineer Jemima Belafonte is. You at least know that no matter how dull the days might be, you’ll be earning a sizeable overtime wage. That is, unless you happen to be ‘ring fenced’ in a “challenging but exciting because change is nothing to fear” employment restructure.

    But what are the chances of that happening?

    Our scifi space audiodrama sitcom continues today with this new episode. But if Jemima's job is under threat, that must be a good thing for her right?

    That means she'll have to return home early? Err... Right...?

    Pod To Pluto: EP11 - Glory Days

    Pod To Pluto: EP11 - Glory Days

    The story we’re about to tell, is set in the near future and is all about an intrepid, young, handsome, and heroic class 9 service Pod on a dangerous mission to the outer regions of the known galaxy and the only person with him is a dumb human called Jemma.

    Well, at least that’s how the story develops in the new award-winning novel that Pod has written (which may or may not be based on real life events) So if Pod is now keeping busy via his own literary pursuits, maybe Jemima can find a hobby all of her own?

    Knitting? Cooking? Boredom? These are all options…

    Pod To Pluto: EP10 - Down All The Days

    Pod To Pluto: EP10 - Down All The Days

    It’s one of the seven wonders of the galaxy! One of the true great sights! A view that has been known to cause strong men, men who have spent their entire life dedicated to the cause of atheism, to fall to their knees and thank God for having been allowed life!

    So, is this a description of the majesty of Saturn’s rings, or just the glory of a KFC family bucket meal? Pod is getting so glitch these days, it’s hard to tell. Maybe some workplace training will help?

    Pod To Pluto: EP9 - It's My Birthday

    Pod To Pluto: EP9 - It's My Birthday

    A birthday comes but once a deep space solar cycle for Pod, who was born 23 years ago today! Pod still thinks it looks just as glistening and new as that moment when the Astro Dock Mid-Wifery team handed it to his mummy, who flicked it’s engage button while his father cut the umbilical matrix (it really was horrible what happened to his father). However, Jemima thinks Pod can’t celebrate a birthday, given that it’s nothing but a hulking, almost decrepit mass of pig iron with no soul and no appreciation of the human condition.

    But if that’s the case, why is everyone so keen to congratulate it today?

Excellent Production

Love the production, love the writing, love the acting. This is the podcast I reach for when I'm cooking dinner. I'm usually still chuckling as I head to bed.
