In 2189, Earth narrowly won a war against extraterrestrials. The Strange Case of Starship Iris is about what comes after. It's a story of outer space, survival, espionage, resistance, identity, friendship, found family, romance, and secrets. (Also, there’s jokes.)

Intriguing and endearing
Okay, bad news: if you like to listen to podcasts in public: this podcast will make you hide your head in your hands a bunch. Either because it's making you cry, or because scriptwriter is so good at writing awkward characters you'll need to hide from the second-hand embarrassment, or because you're scared of where the plot's going (in the best way possible). Good news: the characters also ridiculously endearing, and by the end of the first episode, you'll be loyal to them to the end.
