Must-listen, super-entertaining dive into the meaning of life and the universe!

The Unseen World is a wonderfully entertaining and zany science fiction musical that kept me hooked from start to finish. The quirky and clever storytelling made every episode an eagerly-awaited interlude of enjoyment to my quotidian routine. The characters are eccentric and engaging as they navigate a journey into existentialism and relativity. The soundscape and music is superb and all lyrics are available on the website, which I found added to my experience. I hope to see The Unseen World become a timeless classic and look forward to the sequel!

Original and highly entertaining

I listen to a lot of podcasts and audio drama and this is one of the most original, well-produced, and laugh-out-loud-entertaining productions I’ve encountered. The voice actors are absolutely fantastic— talented and professional. The plot is a little American Astronaut, a little Douglas Adams, a little RHPS. It is seriously engaging, plot-driven and thoughtful sci-fi. And, oh, did I mention it’s a musical?
