    Hey folks! Writer/creator Jess here, we're still on hiatus before our third and final season, and fear not, Patreon patrons, we are not charging you for this non-Starship Iris content, but in the meantime, we're dropping the first episode of Where the Stars Fell, a supernatural fantasy fiction podcast where the biggest twist is only the beginning, and what doesn’t kill you is just another mystery.
    In a mysterious Oregon town, the antichrist and her guardian angel are forced to work together to stop the religious rapture— but they don’t know any of that yet.
    It's a mystery that encourages fans to theorize and engage with it, and celebrates when they predict the revelations. It features themes of disability, identity, and agency from a diverse team of creators. If you’re a fan of Gravity Falls, Good Omens, or Gideon the Ninth, check out Where the Stars Fell.
    You can find and listen to Where the Stars Fell anywhere you listen to podcasts. Our thanks to Where the Stars Fell for letting us drop this episode in our feed.

Amazing

I love this show

Nato ,

“Nice Firefly,” basically.

Jessica Best’s intelligent, exciting, slyly metafictional sci-fi podcast takes the basic idea of lovable outlaws on an iffy spaceship and spins it in compelling new directions. She does a great job fleshing out her characters into people you love spending time with and care about. She introduces interesting sci-fi ideas that don’t retread well-worn territory. She brings in an alien race so well-thought-out that each new revelation about their culture (and their soapy TV dramas) feels fresher and more interesting than the last. And she weaves a tale that should not be as useful as it is about how to band together to survive and find joy in terrifying times. Fundamentally kind but never fluffy or toothless, Starship Iris is the podcast whose return I most eagerly await.

Ben FYM ,

Love it

Such a sweet and exciting space drama that has been told in its fullness by writers and actors with intelligent takes on language, civics, gender and sexuality. If you’re accustomed to cishet-centered narratives, try expanding your worldview with this thrilling gem. All are welcome. I’m always excited to listen to the next episode!
