Wonderfully produced short stories! I loved every single one of them, and oddly, especially the shortest ones. If you’re between AD binges, shove these up your arse-er... uh... ear holes.

Podcast cover

Nine years ago the Wells-Dyson satellite picked up images of what appears to be some sort of wreckage on the floor of Titan's biggest hydrocarbon ocean - Kraken Mare. 

The discovery prompted eccentric billionaire Jennifer Barrie to fast-track an expedition to the mysterious moon of Saturn. 

The three British astronauts who have just arrived in Titan's orbit have only one job - find out what's lying under Kraken Mare. 

And potentially answer one of humanity's biggest questions.

Are we alone in the universe?
