THE VOICE OF FREE PLANET X is public radio from another dimension. Hosted by Jared Axelrod, this show is for fans of science-fiction and fantasy, public radio interview shows like This American Life and Serial, and twists on that format like Limetown and The Black Tapes. If you're new, good places to start are "Paused," about a support group for stranded time-travelers, "One. Precious.Thing." about the first artificial intelligence and it's programmers, or whatever's most recent.

    Episode 26 - Bringing The Universe To You

    The Voice of Free Planet X returns to The Philadelphia Podcast Festival with a brand new live show! In an effort to bring an understanding from two sides of an intergalactic conflict, VFPX host Jared Axelrod invites Salamander Keep (Phil Thomas) and Loam Sodden (Andy Holman Hunter) to debate. But how can they when they keep getting interupted by time-traveler Tiff Tock (Lizzy Hindman-Harvey)? And why is the Devil himself, Lucifer, Who Is The Morningstar (Russell G Collins) hanging around in the audience?
    From the ends of space to the depths of Hell, The Voice of Free Planet X brings you the universe to the comfort of your seats at Tattooed Mom! Featuring a live musical performance by Gina Martinelli!
    A note about the audio: We had some wonderful mics provided for us by Bridge Set Sound, but I wrote an episode that had everyone running all all over the place. So, some parts were not picked up by the good mics, and I've edited in bits recorded by my handheld recorder that I had going just in case. I've tried to make the edits as unobtrusive as possible, but there is a difference in sound quality.

Customer Reviews

Ben Gulley ,

Great storytelling

Do you like fun? Then you’ll love this.

Dark Spiral Dance ,

Most Creative Show in the “Podosphere”

The shear creative force rocketing out of this man’s brain is astounding. Add to that a story-telling style reminiscent of the classic Southern writers, plus a rotating team of very talented voice actors, and you have a special work of art entering your ears. Mr. Axelrod’s show has gone through different artistic periods, and they’re all worth exploring.

Etherius ,

Wonderful, beautiful and strange.

Imagine if Ira Glass or Sarah Koenig ran their shows out of Callahan's Crosstime Saloon...

Jared Axelrod is a mild-mannered, thoughtful and insatiably curious reporter for Galactic Public Radio, the first human to hold that role. Jared travels throughout the multiverse, interviewing people of all different occupations, timelines and species. Occasionally he is joined by his wife, J.R. Blackwell (when she isn't busy with her day job as an administrator in Hell), or his alien producer, Thall. But Jared may not be the impartial observer he seems to be ... and forces beyond our world have taken an uncomfortable interest in his activities.

THE VOICE OF FREE PLANET X is part science fiction serial, part loving satire of public radio, and a sincere, honest, and beautiful exploration of what it means to be human.

(NOTE: This review is for the relaunched version of the show, which began with a new Episode 1 in July 2015.)
