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 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.

Since leaving Titan last month we’ve been doing a bit of deep space exploration in The Tardigrade. And although space can look a bit… empty, it’s actually as hostile an environment as you’re ever likely to find. Out here we’re totally reliant on some pretty fragile materials and equipment keeping us alive. I’m sure everything will be fine of course, but what if something did go wrong? On this episode we’ll create a simulation that shows a rather unfortunate “virtual Colin” tossed out into deep space wearing only his pants. Intrigued? Well, I wouldn’t be. But whatever floats your space boat I suppose… Things to Learn What would happen to you if you were floating in deep space without a spacesuit? Is it possible to survive in deep space? What's the speed of light? How do scientists talk about the massive numbers we're working with in space. Why is Earth’s ozone layer so important?
