    Years have passed. The war is over. Peace has struck a tenuous balance amid the Galaxy. However, there are still questions that linger - and perhaps the new delegation of Terrans that have arrived will hold the answers. Either way, Daoket recognizes that the political game has just become much more interesting.


    This episode is performed by Corey Hawkins, Haley Joel Osment, and Jaboukie Young-White.


    CHRYSALIS is written by SH Serrano, adapted by Stephen Michael and Macklen Makhloghi, and executive produced by Corey Hawkins.

Imaginative. High Quality.

Each season is a different sci-fi concept; Each season nails it on the head. Was looking for an entertaining sci-fi podcast and after following an advertisement from another podcast, I gave it a go.

Not a single disappointment. High quality voice acting combined with imaginative and creative futuristic stories entwined with compelling emotional gears to propel the individual stories, or in the case of "Chrysalis", the story's entirety forward.

I love seeing (or hearing) people's ideas of the future and these anthologies take a diverse, scenic route through those ideas. Burned through the first three seasons in a little over a day and can't wait to see what the next season brings!

Very well done!

HEY..!!

What’s behind the hatch…!?!?!
You know you’ve got a good hook when 20 minutes of content translates to hours of mental processing of potential explanations and plot twists!!

Great 3 episode appetizer.
Looking forward to a full season!

Greatest Accident

Found this podcast by accident when Siri misunderstood a command (no surprise). I binged the show in its entirety in one sitting! Now I obsessively wait for each new episode!
