Episode 39: All Things Considered
After a technical mishap causes Jacobi's latest experimental gizmo to discharge within the Urania, a number of the SI-5's personal items are vented into space. A furious Colonel Kepler assembles everyone who was involved, hell bent on determining which of his underlings is at fault. But when Minkowski, Jacobi, and Eiffel each present wildly different accounts of the event, he and Captain Lovelace discover that determining the why, the how, the when, and the who is responsible for this snafu might be trickier than it first appears. Plus, willful destruction of property, outright libel, Thunderdome, excellent opportunities for science, and Exit 101.

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.
