STRANGENESS in SPACE is entirely crowd-funded: Mirthling fans bought perks to fund a full season of six episodes, and you can download them for FREE from this page.

The series also features Alexei Sayle, Sarah Greene, Katy Brand, Peter Guinness, Rufus Hound, Paterson Joseph, Sylvester McCoy and Sally Phillips – and joining Trev & Simon and Sophie are a brilliant crew of regular characters played by David Annen, Barnaby Edwards, Doon Mackichan & Sarah Madigan. It’s produced by Clare Eden with soundscape by Dave Palser. 

Listeners nominated us in FOUR categories in the Audio Verse Awards: Best Production, Best Actress (Sophie), Best Engineering, and Best Comedy Script (Trev & Simon).  And The Guardian listed us on their “50 Podcasts You Need to Hear”! Scroll down Mirthling and try it yourself! 

Episode 1

Trev and Simon and Sophie are stranded in space, drifting above the Planet Mirth, stuck on a space station with a computer robot called L.E.M.O.N. (Linguistically Enhanced Mobile Operations Network). Low on provisions, they head down to the planet to stock up…. Bad idea…. There’s a sofa storm coming (this is written by Trev & Simon so what did you expect?).
Keeping everything together (just) is their unreliable narrator, Bounty Flightingale;  and the voice of M.A.D.I. (Monographic Announcement Description Interface), she lets us know what’s what, and where’s where (when she can control her attitude problem).
So settle back and over to Jeremy in the studio…
