The series returns with intriguing answers to many questions, and new questions arising from each revelation. Chris grapples with what he's seen in the freezer while the Mission Control people tackle a new challenge: getting Chris to where he wants to go.
Marta tells her daughter the truth and Sophia tells her mother something she doesn't want to hear. Marcus stays where he is safe but his mind is trillions of miles away. And Chris gets a rare chance to do what he's trained to do.
Sophia takes a break, builds a nest, and uncovers a secret. Meanwhile, Marcus learns the significance of a book entitled “Criteria of Desirable Traits for the First Generation of Humans Living on a World Other Than Earth.”
While the next season is in pre-production, we wanted to hear from fans about what they've enjoyed about the show so far. And we begin with fellow audio-drama podcaster David S. Dear, creator and voice of A NINTH WORLD JOURNAL. A fascinating conversation with a great guy!
The next season of our story is in pre-production so we're featuring some of the show's amazing fans, such as Ken Eckle, creator of the absurdly brilliant (and brilliantly absurd) "Podcast Reviews Reviews Podcast."
This time Lee talks with RELATIVITY co-stars Clarence "Marcus Dupree" Brown and Kyle "Raymond Miblin" Jones, who are also co-hosts with Lee on the TV-chat-podcast DISCUSSING WHO. Intriguing questions and bewildering answers abound!
A short discussion with RUKLAND, major indie-podcast booster and moderator for the Podcast Junkie Discord server. Not sure what any of that means, or what it has to do with RELATIVITY? Listen and find out!
Lee Shackleford talks with his brother from another mother, D.J. Sylvis, creator of the popular and passionate MOONBASE THETA, OUT. They talk about everything from work habits to Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
A free-wheeling interview with Mx. Clark and Mx. Clark, creators of the immensely popular sci-fi serial drama podcast TALES OF SAGE AND SAVANT. We talk about voice acting, gender bias, Mary Shelley, John Williams, and the Dies irae. Among other things.
Recently we've interviewed so many creators of wonderful science-fiction podcasts, and that series could not be complete without a discussion with Sarah Rhea Werner, creator and star of the immensely popular GIRL IN SPACE. Enjoy this brief rendezvous of Konyechny and the Cavatica!
The series returns with Sophia and Chris trying to make sense of their brief but intense empathic connection. Marta sets up her new living space but avoids her daughter's questions. And Marcus is the bearer of bad news to Konyechny...
More bad news for Konyechny: one of the ship's vital systems is doomed to failure. Sophia's mother says she's found a new reason to live. And Chris and Sophia compare notes on their brief visit into one another's minds. Then something weird happens in the Habitat ... something very weird indeed.
Fans of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" will appreciate that since it's episode 42, there are a few remarks acknowledging Douglas Adams as a "modern founder" of our genre.
Some snooping into Captain Sidana's private diary leads to the discovery that the Konyechny central computer is now missing a file: a volume of poetry. And Dr. Mason is advised that he should get advice from someone whose sanity is very much in question...
The mystery of the missing book becomes more complicated, and this hurts Nadia deeply. Sophia urges Chris to have a conversation with a man who thinks plants talk to each other, and Nadia makes an astonishing confession...
An inspection of Peter's personal quarters reveals some interesting clues ... but not as interesting as what Prithvi and Marcus have figured out about Nadia's personal filing system. All of which leads to Nadia expressing some opinions of her own.
Chris has a message waiting for him, but he'll have to figure out how to retrieve it. Marta talks to someone who can't hear her, a voice speaks from beyond the grave, and Sophia impulsively does something her mother suggested -- even though Sophia thinks it's absurd.
Thanks once again to Sean Michael McCord for his time and talent!
Marcus proves to be a knight in shining armor, but can Sophia be rescued? Nadia's capacity for love continues to evolve, and Chris has a startling epiphany. Then, believe it or not, some actual answers concerning the mysteries of the Relativity Compensator!
A conversation with devoted RELATIVITY fan Alex Kendal, who thinks about artificial intelligence pretty much non-stop. The talk touches on computer ethics, machine learning, and love for the AI that killed a bunch of people.
Lee sets out to interview Stephanie (Marta Schumacher) Lindsay, but she quickly turns the tables on him because she has questions about RELATIVITY that she's always wanted answered! They also talk about voice acting, the attainment of personal goals, and THE GOOD PLACE.
What happened to Lewis Annstee? Why is Chris so concerned about the plans for Peter Miblin's body? Will Nadia apologize to Sophia as she promised? What is Marta doing in Mission Control? Why is the Mission Control Life Sciences Monitor sitting in the Flight Director's chair? And what will Marcus and Prithvi say when they witness ... a miracle? Most (but not all) of these questions will be answered in episode 51!
Nadia faces the reality of her ethical dilemma, Sophia and Marcus have some happy times before being confronted with a personal crisis, and then ... the lid gets blown off a long-held and deep-dark secret...
Can Marcus and Sophia -- with help from Nadia -- get Chris back inside the ship before all of his air vents out into space? Can Mac be persuaded to look for something every other scientist on Earth has missed? And could Dr. Mason finally be losing his one and only mind?
The mysterious voice does indeed turn out to be an important person. Chris and Mac work on an idea that may change the whole world for the better, and meanwhile Prithvi is doing the same! And the day Chris has been dreading for years ... has arrived.
