Please be advised this episode of Wolf 359 contains mentions of violence, death, and suicide. Listener discretion is advised. As Eiffel, Minkowski, Hera, and Lovelace try to decide how to allocate their limited resources, Kepler finally reveals some of Goddard Futuristics's most deeply held secrets. Before the crew can consider the existential implications of these revelations, however, they'll need to deal with their own growing fears, insecurities, and personal conflicts. Plus, snake-filled pits, educated guesses, paradigm shifts, impractical human emotions, and the remainder of our musical program. Tonight's episode features Julia Morizawa in the role of Commander Zhang. It also features The Waltz of the Flowers, by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

Starts Great and Gets Even Better
The first episodes of Wolf 359 are excellent. Well-produced, well-acted, well-written, and quite funny. The series only gets better as it progresses, and hints of mystery are quietly layered into what you thought was just a comedy. My one qualm is that the science references sometimes feel a little inaccurate, but as an engineer I'm always nitpicky about that sort of thing anyway.
I enjoy Night Vale and the Thrilling Adventure Hour, but I would call Wolf 359 my favorite radio drama for its interesting premise, its far-out atmospherics, and its ability to defy expectation with its story.
