Oz 9

"    Oz 9 " Podcast
Spring 2142 and Gated Galaxies has launched its 400 Oz-8000 ships, each carrying 50,000 "resting guests" to, hopefully, a new home on a shiny, brand-new planet. As soon as they find one. IF they find one. This is the story of one of those ships – the Oz 9 – and its tiny crew of hopeless incompetents. So far, they've been in space half an hour and several hundred people are dead. So... bright future, clearly.

Captain Jessie is now aboard the Oz 9, which is great, except she brought her assassin with her (pro tip: don't do that), and he's managed to get a hold of some fairly crucial information about the Oz 9.  Will our pointless but slightly endearing...

Season: 1
It's late, and there's an assassin loose aboard the Oz 9, but Leet isn't going to let that interrupt his conversation with sleeping people.  After all, in at least a dozen conversations, only one of them called him stupid. Leet really REALLY...

Season: 1 Episode: 15
Here's a shocker: the Oz 9 crew's lives are in danger. Suffocation, toxic gas, a loose assassin, the risk of being crushed under their own denseness–perils lurk around every corner and certainly between slices of bread. Still, they've managed to...

Season: 1 Episode: 16
'Allo, little piggies!  The notorious assassin le Bichon Frise is circling our crew like a vulture who hopes his prey drops soon because he's tired and hungry and a little cranky and frankly probably a little dehydrated and his blood sugar's low,...

Season: 1 Episode: 17
The episode that finally answers the critical question: why do robots climb like cows? There's an arm under the sofa, Jessie's dangling from a shelf in Maintenance Bay 15, and we learn what ligatures are for. It's, like, Day 7? 8? aboard the Oz 9, and...

Season: 1
It's that kind of day, innit? One minute, you're out having a quick ciggie next to the tip, and then the world goes all wobbly, and suddenly you're aboard someone else's spaceship, only it's held together with duct tape and optimism and crewed by the...

Season: 1 Episode: 18
You know that one colleague at work who is just hopeless? Tries earnestly to do the job, help out, and be useful, but usually ends up spilling his beer on the control panel and shorting out half the city? Yeah, would you mind taking him back because...

Season: 1 Episode: 19
If you've ever been in mortal peril, you know the most crucial decision you'll make in that situation is your choice of writing implement.  No? Well, that makes you smarter than this crowd, but before your head swells up just in time for bikini...

Season: 1 Episode: 20
Somewhere aboard the Oz 9, a bomb is ticking. Actually, a crap-ton of things are going wrong aboard the Oz 9; this is just the biggest and most likely to kill our crew the soonest. It's the final episode of Season 1, and our crew is, yes, yes, let's...

Season: 1
Oz 9 podcast is on a hiatus between seasons one and two, but you didn't think you were getting off the hook that easily, did you? Goodness, no.  In this spoiler-ridden, one-f-bomb-droppin' bonus episode (and we use the word "bonus" with some...

Season: 1
A behind-the-scenes, into-the-chaos peek into how Oz 9 gets made and why it's .... the way it is. There are some spoilers here, so be sure you listen to the whole of Season 1 (maybe 2 or 3 times) before you take this on. You've been listening to: Eric...

Season: 1
It's the much-awaited (or not really), highly anticipated (or sort of mediumly anticipated) Full Cast Q & A, including the guy who does our music! We had a rare opportunity to gather the entire cast of Oz 9 together in one room, so we quickly made...

Season: 2 Episode: 1
You're never going to guess what's going on aboard the Oz 9... Well, yes, you're right, they are in danger of their lives... And yes, right again, they've made a bunch of dumb mistakes that got them here... Ok, FINE, I guess you can guess, smart ass,...

Season: 2 Episode: 2
Name three animals that can see in the dark. What happens when an animal that couldn't... suddenly can? Given that it's happening aboard the Oz 9, my guess is that it isn't good. Strange things are afoot aboard our ship, and most of them are the crew....

Season: 2 Episode: 3
I think the lesson to be learned from this episode is, if you ever attend a cocktail party at Dr. von Haber Zetzer's, maybe don't eat the appetizers. You’ve been listening to:   June Clark Eubanks as Glenda   Bonnie Brantley as...

Season: 2
Who doesn't love a good origin story, amirite? Here's hoping you also love a mediocre one.  Even a sort of lousy one that involves a lot of people with fishy sounding names (you'll get that joke once you've heard it).  This is our...

Season: 2 Episode: 4
There's an assassin in memory storage ... that's just not something you hear every day, is it? Colin's eaten a highly questionable olive, Dr. von Haber Zetzer is learning about strange cultural phenomena, and something about different kinds of peas....

Season: 2 Episode: 5
Leet's in Dr. von Haber Zetzer's lab, and you know no good can come of that. Colin is lethally in need of a nap, and the Albatros is on the hunt for a husband.  Things are weird aboard the Oz 9, and that's saying something. You’ve been...

Season: 2
It's the Oz 9, so of course they even manage to screw up Halloween.  What do you do if there's an open and empty coffin in the hold of your ship?  No, really, what do YOU do, because we've got bugger all for ideas. You've been listening to...

Season: 2 Episode: 6
Earth is starting to feel the loss of its most dependable consumers, it's chaos all 'round, and I got a fricking paper cut putting this episode together, so if you want to know what it's about, well, I guess you'll just have to listen, won't you. Just...

Season: 2 Episode: 7
Does it sometimes seem like everything that is trying to kill you wants to talk to you about it first? I mean, I don't really feel like I need to connect with you on an emotional level when I'm just trying to keep breathing. In episode 27, a very...

Season: 2 Episode: 8
An episode so full of unexpected twist and turns, you should probably schedule an appointment with your chiropractor now.  Wet sandwiches, heat-resistant foxes, and some highly suspect popcorn flavoring are the very least of the crew's problems...

Season: 2 Episode: 9
Episode 29, in which we learn the meaning of the Scottish slang word "boaking." Repeatedly. In vivid color. In this episode, the world has gone topsy turvy — up is down, left is right, enemies are friends... But the fugu is still poisonous, and our...

Season: 2
On December 4, 2019, Oz 9 did a live show at the South Side Podfest at Bar 171 in Chicago, Illinois.  It was the evening of the Annual Assassins Holiday Dinner. Of course, the Albatros and le Bichon Frise attended, with chaperone Cpt. Madeline,...

Season: 2 Episode: 10
It's the holiday season aboard the Oz 9, though how that happened when they launched in spring, like, a month ago, is anyone's guess.  But whatever the case, there's a mysterious box in Cargo Bay 7, and whether it was delivered by Santa or...

Season: 2 Episode: 11
I... we... they... Seriously? This is... It just...  SERIOUSLY? You've been listening to: June Clark Eubanks as Glenda and the Albatros Bonnie Brantley as Donna and Jessie Tim Sherburn as Colin, Buck, and Emily Eric Perry as Mr. Southers, Head 1,...

Season: 2
Otherwise known as "The Origin of Colin Smith," this mini ep gives some background into- Ah ah — you almost got me, there. Nope. I'm not telling. I'm afraid you'll have to listen like it's 2020 or something. You're listening to: Eric Perry as Mr....

Season: 2 Episode: 12
I've pretty much decided that some weeks ago, I ate the fugu, and everything since has been some sort of weird fever dream. I mean, that's the only thing that makes sense, right? RIGHT? You’ve been listening to: Kevin Hall as Cal and Greg the...

Season: 2 Episode: 13
No one said life in space would be easy. Though if they'd listened closely, the people buying seats on the Oz ships might have heard G2 officials mutter under their breath about how easy death in space was going to be ... Anyway, it's a Thursday...

Season: 2 Episode: 14
What do you do when your Otologostealth X13 runs out of charge?  That wasn't actually a rhetorical question — the manual is in Ancient Mesopotamian (we think) and none of the charging cables we have fits. Anyone? Anyway, we say goodbye to a...

Season: 2 Episode: 15
Beans — BIG beans — are about to be spilled aboard the Oz 9, and that could spell trouble for the crew. Especially if the beans land in a very particular way that happens to spell "trouble." And someone aboard the Oz 9 is not doing their job....

Season: 2 Episode: 16
Pod poetry is generally considered to be the 3rd worst in the universe. If you have a weak liver or any sort of cheese allergy, you might want to check with a doctor before listening to this episode. You're listening to: Bonnie Brantley as Jessie and...

Season: 2 Episode: 17
Despite Joe's best attempts to keep the Oz 9 free of ... icky things, a very large, armed, and presumably hostile icky thing has taken over the bridge. This has just been one of those space voyages, hasn't it?  You're listening to: Iri Alexander...

Season: 2 Episode: 18
Look, I've been up all night, and seriously the first person to speak to me may find themselves trying to pour coffee into a stump. Like, where their head used to be, not a tree, that was supposed to be sort of threatening and scary. Never mind....

Season: 2 Episode: 19
Episode 39 means one more until the end of Season 2, and where we're going is no clearer than the muck at the bottom of the bioswamp. But hey, you've gotten this far, you might as well stick with us a little longer. Eventually, it'll all make sense....

Season: 2 Episode: 20
It's the end of Season 2, and our crew are still dumb, still in space, and still hovering at the edge of death. Thanks to all the zig zagging around the galaxy, they're nearly back where they started, and the forniculator still hasn't been fixed. So,...

Season: 2
The Oz ships failed under mysterious circumstances entirely caused by their on-board crews or natural disaster wholly unrelated to Gated Galaxies or its subsidiaries, officers, or agents. G2 accepts no responsibility or liability for loss of liberty,...

Season: 2
If you think Oz 9 looks like chaos from the front, well, it's just as raggedy and unkempt 'round the back (if slightly less dangerous). In this bonus episode for our hiatus, our 4 newest cast members, David S. Dear, Sarah Golding, Kevin Hall, and Iri...

If you've ever wondered about our crew's lives before they got wrapped up in the drama of the Oz 9, well, keep wondering, because you're not going to learn a damn thing from this disaster of an episode.  You're listening to: Eric Perry as Dr. von...

Season: 3 Episode: 1
Welcome back, space monkeys! We hope you enjoyed your six-week excursion ashore. Watch your step, the gangplank is slippery and also there's no oxygen out here, so look lively. Take your seats, please; we'll be setting adrift...sorry, a-sail again...

Season: 3 Episode: 2
Something nefarious is happening on a golf course in French Lick, Indiana. Actually, several nefarious things. Well, OK, like, three... maybe four nefarious things, and then a whole bunch of naughty things. Look, we're losing the point here. ...

Season: 3 Episode: 3
Perhaps you've heard about the mold that's eating radioactive materials around Chernobyl? And that scientists are considering insulating spacecraft and astronauts suits with the stuff to protect them from solar radiation? We're not imagining things up...

Season: 3 Episode: 4
If you've been keeping up with the antics of that zany crew aboard the Oz 9- Have you ever considered taking up a REAL hobby? Like stamps or shuffleboard or knitting quilts or something? It's episode 44, and no one is any smarter than they were 43...

Season: 3 Episode: 5
It's really late. The kind of late that keeps on getting later until it circles back round to early. When I'm this blurry and tired, I'm likely to say anything. Like how much more bearable life became on this ship with we busted Dr. Theo out of his...

Season: 3 Episode: 6
Probably the most remarkable thing that happens in this entire episode is that Le Bichon Frise pronounces "assassinate" correctly. I know. We were pretty shocked too. It happens at the bottom of page 3, so if you just want to hear that and skip the...

Season: 3 Episode: 7
What would you do if everything in your garden suddenly attacked you? Carrots shooting themselves at your eyes, radishes nibbling tiny, spicy holes in your ankles, kohlrabi shouting at you, probably in German, given how "kohlrabi" is spelled — does...

Season: 3 Episode: 8
Remember how there was that one week you were sick or maybe just on vacation but too poor to go anywhere? And you watched daytime TV, and even though you knew it was ridiculous and cheesy, by Friday you were desperate to know if little Suzy really was...

Season: 3 Episode: 9
I'd apologize for this being so late, but if you think about it, I gave you an extra 16-and-a-half Oz-free hours, which is, like, a decade in idiot years. It's been a long day aboard the Oz 9. You think bad decision making is easy — Doritos for...

Season: 3 Episode: 10
Humans on the receiving end of divine affections don't do so well, mythologically speaking. However, after having seen Donna in action, the smart money is on the homo sapien. , if he knows what's good for him. With this episode, we are officially...

Season: 3
EARLIER SOUND ISSUES HAVE BEEN CORRECTED, AND OUR PRODUCTION PERSON HAS BEEN FWIIIIIIIIIIII...... What happens when the alien aboard your ship gets hungry?  Usually really gross things involving lots of blood and gore and that, but fortunately...

Season: 3
Merry Christmas, ya bums.

Season: 3
To punish Kevin Hall for having the gall to ... something, I can't remember what it was he did, but for sure he did something really bad to merit this kind of response.... Anyway, maybe just to be mean, we made him relisten to Oz 9, write a bunch of...

Season: 3 Episode: 11
The crew aboard the Oz 9 are stalactites, holding tight to the ceiling in unexpected zero Gs, and the crew on the ground are stalagmites, who might survive if a crabby, oddly dressed ancient god decides to let them go. You know, same old same old. Oz...

Season: 3 Episode: 12
Do you know how to disable an invisible alarm? Yeah, well, listen close; someone on our crew is about to tell you. Well, maybe... we're not entirely sure it works, so I don't know that I'd test it at the Louvre. Maybe Paddy MacDougal's Museum...

Season: 3 Episode: 13
The universe may be crashing around your ears, but as long as you know the difference between who and whom and how to scoop up a dangling participle, you'll be all right. It's kind of like knowing where your towel is. In this very special episode, a...

Season: 3 Episode: 14
All the backstory you never wanted and then some. We find out some stuff about Le Bichon Frise, some other stuff about Donna, blah blah blah. Greg falls over at one point, so that's pretty funny.  I'd say "sorry it's so late," but I feel like I...

Season: 3 Episode: 15
OK, OK, yes, it's late AGAIN. We know. We've been having a really rough time lately, the kids are sick, the roof caved in when we had that thunderstorm last week, and then there was that other thing.... No, you're right. None of that is true. Our...

A rift in time and space causes four members of the Oz 9 crew to get pulled off the space ship (bringing the median IQ up a significant number of notches) and swapped with four members of the EMF (aaaaaaaaaaand we're back to where we were, IQ-wise)....
