About This Show
Join us on a journey to some of the most inhospitable, humbling, and frighteningly beautiful places in the known universe.
Hostile Worlds is a podcast that lets you explore alien landscapes and extra-terrestrial terrain - all from the comfort of your headphones.
From the freezing hydrocarbon oceans of Titan, to the scorched, and suffocating wastes of Venus – we’ll take you on an educational and immersive audio tour to all the places you’d die to see… and places you’d die if you saw.
You’ll join the crew of The Tardigrade, an all-purpose vehicle that can float, fly, dive, and dig through any environment in the universe.
And you’ll learn all the facts you'll ever needed to present yourself as THE space exploration authority down your local pub on a Friday night.
Hostile Worlds is a unique documentary/audio drama hybrid – brought to you by the folks at ThePodcastHost.com.

Welcome to Venus, the second planet from the sun and the closest other planet to Earth. So, why do we always think of Mars as the closest and likeliest candidate for off-world exploration and habitation? On this episode, Sarah and David head to the only planet named after a female deity. With Sarah at the controls, David explores the surface of a planet which, despite its “hot and hellish landscape”, has more similarities to our own “Pale Blue Dot” than we realise.
