Felicia Day and her talented friends launched a new podcast this week, and the first episode is already available. Called “Voyage to the Stars,” the podcast promises sci-fi adventures and humor, and is brought to life with a group of talented writers and comedians.
The new podcast stars Felicia Day (The Guild, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog) as scatterbrained scientist Elsa Rankfort; Colton Dunn (Superstore, Key & Peele, Parks & Recreation) as wholly unqualified Captain Tucker Lentz; Steve Berg (The Good Place, Tag, The Goldbergs) as apathetic technician Stew Merkel; and Janet Varney (You’re The Worst, Stan Against Evil, Key & Peele) as the misanthropic A.I. aptly named Sorry.
“Voyage to the Stars” is about the misadventures of a group of misfits who accidentally find themselves on the wrong side of a wormhole. Their mission: try not to blow up the galaxy in their attempts to return home. With space being so vast, it will take a long time for them to get home, and each alien planet they visit along the way is more outrageous than the last. The planets are filled with bizarre creatures played by guest stars including Tom Lenk, Kirsten Vangsness, Amir Talai, Chris Williams, Eric Edelstein, Gary Anthony Williams, Hal Lublin, Nyima Funk, Suzy Nakamura, Cole Stratton, and Deborah Baker Jr.
The official description reads: “The universe will never be the same as this pop-culture reference laden, disastrous space opera unfolds, with stand-alone episodes that come together to tell a larger story about finding your place in the world. Even if it takes getting hopelessly lost in space and upsetting several alien civilizations along the way.”
The podcast is produced by Madison Wells Media, with series writer and producer Ryan Copple (Wil Wheaton’s Table Top), and audio producer Steven Ray Morris (My Favorite Murder).
Episode one launched today, and episodes two through seventeen will release every Tuesday. You can find the podcast wherever you prefer, but there will be exclusive content to Stitcher Premium subscribers.
“Voyage to the Stars” kicks off as a podcast and will quickly evolve into comic books, live shows (including weekly programming on the Voyage to the Stars Twitch Channel), games, merch and toys, and everything in-between.
