“Broadcasting. This is Roger Bragado-Fischer,
Communications, Moonbase Theta.”
A new podcast series from Monkeyman Productions.
It is 2098. The Moonbase program, owned and operated by corporate enclaves back on Earth, has been determined unprofitable. The last base, Theta, is twenty weeks from being decommissioned. Most of the crew is in stasis awaiting retrieval.
In a series of twenty weekly broadcasts, Roger Bragado-Fischer, Communications, counts down. Listen in and experience the stark beauty, the wry humour, the isolation and frustration, the romance, and the tragedy as the remaining crew members see the operation through to its scheduled end.
