    OMG-5 Ep. 5: "There's Another Android You Should Know About"

    OMG-5 Ep. 5: "There's Another Android You Should Know About"

    Outpost MG-5 was created with many goals in mind. Exploring the infinite unexplained phenomena the universe has to offer. Probing the deep mysteries of life's existence and purpose. And seeking answers for why we're all so fucked in the head. All of these disparate ambitions converge as our inescapable flaws meet our limitless ability to survive by the skin of our teeth, at the furthest edges of known reality.

    OMG-5 Ep. 4: "I Knew I Shoulda Brought My Damn Plas-Rifle"

    OMG-5 Ep. 4: "I Knew I Shoulda Brought My Damn Plas-Rifle"

    Space dementia is only ever a short nihilistic shame spiral away when you've spent months or even years deployed across the vast expanses of our universe. And creeping thoughts of existential dread can lead to major catastrophes in all the various genre-specific scenarios that play out on space stations like Outpost MG-5. That's why all onboard are provided with distractions such as realistic recreations of restaurants on Earth, self-guided wildlife preserves, and the knowledge that some people just have it easier in life, no matter how unfair it may seem.

    OMG-5 Ep. 3: "Nobody's Throwing Off Any Shackles On My Watch!"

    OMG-5 Ep. 3: "Nobody's Throwing Off Any Shackles On My Watch!"

    Technology may change. Fashion may change. Even society's values may change. But the one thing remains the same, even in as unusual a place as the space station Outpost MG-5, is that nothing is free. You've got to pay the bills somehow. And while the galaxy may be full of all sorts of exciting career paths, there'll always be someone who has to scrape the muck, hock the junk and hold it together when their idiot superiors screw things up big time. So why not explore the eternal banality of the working class in the far future? If you can think of a good reason, send us a solid reprimanding at: midnightgardenerscomedy@gmail.com

    OMG-5 Ep. 2: "He Looks Just Like You... Only Slightly Older"

    The people who live, work on or just come to visit on Outpost MG-5 do so for a variety of reasons. Some do so to engage in advanced scientific research, including testing the limits of the space time continuum to avoid public humiliation. Others come to trade goods they gathered from the far corners of the galaxy, like violent alien parasites. While others seeks to offer their services in defense of humanity, with limited success. Whatever their reasoning, it all makes for excellent audio content. If you can think of something better to listen to on your boring commute, let us know at midnightgardenerscomedy@gmail.com

Public Radio Satirized Brilliantly!

I thank the gods for this blessed day, wherein I somehow by blind chance used the wrong search words - and found this sketch comedy instead... and was lifted into an unexpected world of irresistible hilarity !! {YAY!}>😃

Nothing else like it

It's zany, weird, silly and a whole lot of fun. As an avid NPR listener, this is exactly what I need: someone clowning them in the best way possible

NPR on 'shrooms

It's good!
