Spring 2142 and Gated Galaxies has launched its 400 Oz-8000 ships, each carrying 50,000 "resting guests" to, hopefully, a new home on a shiny, brand-new planet. As soon as they find one. IF they find one.

This is the story of one of those ships – the Oz 9 – and its tiny crew of hopeless incompetents. So far, they've been in space half an hour and several hundred people are dead. So... bright future, clearly.

    We hope you all had a great holiday season. 

    We didn't.

    Something blew up and it stunk like crazy, but we still have no idea what it was, and Dr. von Haber Zetzer's not talking. We're not sure if that's because he's guilty or in shock, but either way, we're not prying an answer out of him any time soon.

    Come buy stuff. You'll find links to our merch and Patreon pages at oz-9.com. Many thanks for your support!

    Have you ever wondered about HOW the Oz ships were retrofitted for long space journeys? Us too. 

    We still do. Listen to the end to hear the trailer from the awesome podcast Mockery Manor! (https://link.chtbl.com/mockerymanor?sid=oz9z)

    Is there anyone on the bridge whose name isn't completely douchey?

    Is there anyone on the bridge whose name isn't completely douchey?

    Yeah, it's kind of a long title, but it's an important question. 

    This episode is a flashback in which random, weird stuff happens, just in case you were wondering if 2021 and 2022 were the weirdest history gets.

    You thought your job was hard, imagine being Narrator (or Narrator 2, really) for this boatload of Twinkies. (Which, incidentally have still not shown any signs of decomposition in 2142, just sayin'.)

    If our Narrator makes it through his contract without developing a neurosis (or cirrhosis), well, it's not our fault.

    Avocado yogurt.... avocado yogurt....

    It's true many people complain that Oz 9 is not only NOT educational, it may in fact "leach information out of your brain as you listen." (thanks, mom — real nice)

    We beg to differ. Did you know zebras were once called "hippotigruses" (hippotigri? whatever)? Think of how much you've learned about plants and space and maths and fugu and Sweden!

    Until next time, Space Monkeys!

Couldn’t “put it down”

I listened to the first four episodes back to back because I couldn’t stop, it is so good! Within the first episode I was already invested in the characters and the great storyline!!

spbennie ,

So much fun!

Interacted with these folks on Twitter and have started listening from the very beginning now!! So good and so much fun.

Fan for life. 😁🙌🏻🍺🎙

Nico J Rodriguez ,

Really fun story!

I’m only halfway through the first season and I’m already loving the show! The characters are super well written and the acting is amazing. The balance between comedy and mystery is perfect as well! Definitely worth a listen
