SCIENCE FICTION

The Strange Case of Starship Iris

An eclectic blend from across the audiosphere that stood out from the noise

The Strange Case of Starship Iris follows a crew of smugglers in a galaxy far in the future as they scratch out existence in the war-torn stars. The podcast premiered a few years back in 2017. The voice acting flows between characters naturally without suffering from lackluster interactions and placid emotions. The tension, friendships, and romance are all well-acted, allowing the show to carry a lot of intrigue and conflict without exhausting the listener.
