Description

Life's not easy for Doug Eiffel, the communications officer for the U.S.S. Hephaestus Research Station, currently on Day 448 of its orbit around red dwarf star Wolf 359. He's stuck on a scientific survey mission of indeterminate length, 7.8 light years from Earth. His only company on board the station are stern mission chief Minkowski, insane science officer Hilbert, and Hephaestus Station's sentient, often malfunctioning operating system Hera. He doesn't have much to do for his job other than monitoring static and intercepting the occasional decades-old radio broadcast from Earth, so he spends most of his time creating extensive audio logs about the ordinary, day-to-day happenings within the station. But the Hephaestus is an odd place, and life in extremely isolated, zero gravity conditions has a way of doing funny things to people's minds. Even the simplest of tasks can turn into a gargantuan struggle, and the most ordinary-seeming things have a way of turning into anything but that. Wolf 359 is a radio drama in the tradition of Golden Age of Radio shows. Take one part space-faring adventure, add one part character drama, and mix in one part absurdist sitcom, and you get Wolf 359. New episodes are released every two weeks.

Customer Reviews

Run, Don’t Walk

Wolf 359 is delightfully nerdy and deliciously dystopian, in the august tradition of Douglas Adams, Portal, and Paranoia. Run, don't walk, to your nearest internet-capable audio contraption to tune in now! And if you can't run, crawl. And if you can't do that, find someone to carry you, gorramit!

Geeky, Dark, and Very, Very, Very Funny

If you've been looking for something to fill the gaps between new episodes of Night Vale, hunting for a quality science fiction comedy, or just yearning for a top-notch audio drama, here is the answer to all your prayers. Wolf 359 is one of the most satisfying podcast experiences I have ever had, filled with snappy writing, tight characters, and all manners of twisted, dark jokes. You can definitely feel the tonal echoes of everything from Doctor Who to MST3K and Douglas Adams knocking around in the three episodes that have been released so far, but these guys are also very clearly building up on that and doing they're own thing. Throw in some excellent acting, crisp recordings and audio mixing, and one heck of a gorgeous soundtrack (especially impressive considering that this seems to be a completely DIY project) and you have what I think is the start of something really special.

Better than TV.

This show is super clever, very well written and moves at a great pace. As a former Trekkie, I'm such a fan of sci-fi storytelling (especially if I can listen to it in transit). You won't miss having a visual: the production quality is very high and the acting so spot-on.
