In 2057, the international space exploration conglomerate MECTI (Mars Exploration, Colonization and Terraformation Initiative) sends the first two manned missions to Mars, in an attempt to not only land the crew safely on the surface, but to have this small collection of humans establish the first permanent foothold on another planet.

Transmissions From Colony One tells the story of these first humans, who volunteered for a one-way trip to Mars, and constantly struggle with their decision to give up everything about their past lives for a harsh existence in the most unforgiving environment imaginable.

Speechless

This is the most underrated podcast I’ve yet come across. The acting blew me away and had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Without a doubt my absolute top favorite out of the countless hours of podcast material I’ve gobbled up. I am sad to see there is no season four...?

Um...

This is an absolutely terrific concept and the sound design is *amazing*.

Unfortunately, the story quickly breaks down into the most ridiculously silly, wholly unbelievable melodrama. It took a lot for me to finish this - the excellent sound design was all that kept me listening.

I don’t want to give this a so-so review, but the story doesn’t hold. It just doesn’t. All this tremendous potential drowns in a cringe-worthy narrative. The creator’s vision is clear, so perhaps future projects will reflect that potential (but with a better developed story).
