    Introducing: A Christmas Caper, starring Beth Crane!

    Introducing: A Christmas Caper, starring Beth Crane!

    Hey! We hope you’re having a good December and are looking forward to hearing our Brucemas Specials. We’ve been hard at work on both the main feed mini and the full length episode which will be available to pre-order in our GumRoad store very soon and will also go out to all of our Patrons!
    In the meantime, we thought you might like to hear a special, festive episode of RPG: Realms of Peril and Glory. We’re playing a game called A Christmas Caper, and it stars me, Beth, aka Kilner as Scarlet Adelie, a penguin who really wants to fly…
    A Christmas Caper is a really fun game by Zachary Fortais-Gomm, who also GMs this session. The episode also stars some names you might recognise, including Felix Trench and Laura Girling.
    If you like what you hear, you can find episode two here or by searching RPG: Realms of Peril and Glory in your podcatcher.
    The transcript is available here!

    Introducing... Realms of Peril & Glory, and Vael!

    Introducing... Realms of Peril & Glory, and Vael!

    We hope you enjoyed the second season of Marilyn's Diary! We're now hard at work on the Halloween Special, and we're already working on the outlines for We Fix Space Junk Season Four!
    But in the meantime, we just wanted to let you know about a really cool new show from some dear friends of ours.
    Zachary Fortais-Gomm, creator of the Orphans, recently started a new podcast, RPG - Realms of Peril and Glory. It features some of our absolute favourite people doing one of our favourite things -- playing RPGs.
    Their first season, Vael, is an epic mystery thriller, set in New Harbour, a city of magic, monsters and machines. They've got five episodes out so far and a new episode coming every Wednesday.
    The format for Vael is really cool -- while Zack sets the scene as the Game Master, James Barbarossa plays all of the NPCs. At the table are Laura Girling, Maddy Searle, Liz Campbell and Pip Gladwin, whose voices can be heard on shows such as Victoriocity, Wooden Overcoats, Prickwillow Papers and, in fact, We Fix Space Junk!
    It's fully scored and sound designed in a way that really brings you into the action. We've really loved listening and we think you'll love it too.
    And if that wasn't enough, you'll be able to hear both of us in future seasons!
    So, here it is! Episode one of Vael, from RPG: Realms of Peril & Glory.
    If you like what you hear -- and we hope you do! -- you can find Realms of Peril & Glory on any podcatcher you like or by clicking this link! The episode transcript is available here.
    Enjoy!

Gritty and Human Space Tragicomedy

If you loved Blake’s 7, you’ll love this. I both laughed a lot and cried my own tears. Extraordinary.

Podnen ,

An awesome space comedy

I love this show so much! Beth and Hedley are such a talented team. It's made me cry tears of both laughter and sadness so many times. I love the Space Junk universe, especially the contrast between the darkness of the all-present and all-powerful Automnicon, and the comedy of the characters having to deal with many...tricky situations!

Moksa95 ,

Fabulous

Witty and insightful, this audio drama takes the Hitch-Hiker's Guide a step further and does it beautifully. Sinister capitalist villains + brilliant, flawed heroines = a fabulous show.
