About the Podcast
“The Adventures of Captain Radio” is a scripted, serialized science fiction audio drama podcast. It’s distributed free through all major podcast players, including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Amazon Music; directly via RSS feed; and anywhere fine audio fiction is found. The podcast is produced by Obscure Studios, a small, independent production company. Our website is obscurestudios.net.
The Short Version: In the distant future, the heroic Captain Radio must team up with his robotic sidekick and a former enemy to save the love of his life and stop his arch-nemesis from destroying the universe.
The Longer Version: Set in the distant future, “The Adventures of Captain Radio” follows the exploits of the masked hero Captain Radio, the alter-ego of Count Xavier of the planet Alpha Centauri. Along with his robotic sidekick Ace and former enemy Orion, Captain Radio travels across the stars fighting against the evil Doctor Orban, a mad scientist who has kidnapped Lady Andromeda and taken her to his space fortress, where he is attempting to conquer the universe with help from the mysterious Eleventh Dimension. Each episode is a love letter to the golden age of science fiction and the radio dramas of yesteryear, complete with narration and commercials for space-age products from an alternate version of the year 1937. The show is chock-full of rapid-fire dialogue, rockets, robots, and ray guns.
Season One— Captain Radio and the Mutant Mole People from the Eleventh Dimension—is a six-part story made up of 20-minute episodes. The entire first season is now available to listen to. We’re taking a quick breather before we begin work on season two.

“There’s something nostalgic about seeing pics of people huddled around a speaker listening to some radio show. If you ever wondered what that was like, listen to The Adventures of Captain Radio, which harkens back to the good ol’ days with a science fiction drama.”
– Paul Kondo, Podcast Gumbo
“This is a fun story from the future of our past’s imagination. The story and narrative setting are both compelling and make for a lighthearted and enjoyable adventure. You quickly feel a familiarity with the characters. I have been smiling during my entire listen.”
