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.

LOVE

I just finished Wolf359 in a really short space of time for an audio drama with that many episodes! But I just couldn’t stop listening. It’s comedic entertainment on behalf of Eiffel for the first few episodes until things start to reveal themselves. No character is better than the other, they are all amazing and the actors were phenomenal. Would recommend this to everyone. Also... I want a friend like Hera 😂 it’s a must listen! 👏🏼

INSTANTLY HOOKED

Wolf359 has amazing characters and a storyline that will put those characters through every situation imaginable, yet still avoids being cliché. Filled with moments that will make you laugh, cry and want to fight each and every character.

I’m so glad this was created and could listen to this on repeat for the rest of my life

Brilliant!

Just started this on the recommendation from my son. Totally addicted! Bit like Red Dwarf but better! Great acting and writing.
