I have recently discovered Wolf 359, an addictively entertaining science fiction audiodrama. The crew of the USS Hephaestus has been orbiting the titular star for a little over a year, and things are getting...tense. Pop-culture-overdosed slacker communications officer Eiffel is constantly reaching new heights in his efforts to get out of doing any actual work, head (and only) scientist Dr. Hilbert is doing god-knows-what in his lab and keeping his interactions with everyone else as minimal and creepifying as possible, hardassed by-the-book Commander Minkowski has her hands full keeping the station running, and even ever-pleasant ship's AI Hera is starting to develop some quirks of her own. How do you keep yourself sane in deep space? What does Command actually expect them to find out here? And has anyone else noticed that this station seems really large for a four-person* crew...?
The show is alternately hilarious and heartrending, with an excellent mix of action, character study, and intrigue. All the acting is stellar, the production quality is high, and it's just well-made all around. It takes a couple episodes to find its feet, and a couple more to go from slice-of-life to the serial adventure that it's become, but once it gets there it hits the ground running. It's a biweekly podcast that just started its third season (29 episodes + 3 minisodes in total as of this writing), and it's available on iTunes, its official site, and several other platforms linked from there.
*God help you if you so much as imply to Minkowski that Hera isn't a person and a member of the crew.
