• 506: Garmbo

    While Robert, Beatrice, Bert-A and the Captain recover from their experimental memory merge, the Bartys embark on yet another dangerous project.

Stranded on a hostile planet, a crew of barely-competent explorers try their best to survive despite themselves.

An improvised dark comedy sci-fi podcast.
