Wolf 359 is a red dwarf that can be found in the constellation of Leo, just shy of 7.8 light years away. Or if you’re a Trekkie, it’s where the Federation gets its collective arse kicked by the Borg, as a single cube heads for Earth in the year 2367. (Me…I’m not…so don’t bother).
Or, more importantly, Wolf 359 is a comedy podcast that’s been running for almost 2 years, and is fan-frickin-tastic!
Doug Eiffel is communications officer on the U.S.S. Hephaestus Station, and this is his audio diary log, all about the drudgery of being communications officer aboard a tin can floating around in space.
Listening to him bumble his way, almost unscathed, from one sticky situation, only to land smack bang into the middle of the next, is an absolute blast.
It has everything a deep space comedy should have, a glitchy ships computer, a mad scientist, and a pushy, ‘by-the-book’ captain, trying to spoil our heroes fun at every opportunity.
If you have fond memories for the likes of old school Red Dwarf, and I do, then this is the show for you, and it is!
A smooth dry wit, that is a pleasure to the ears!
So do yourself a favour, get your space suit on and blast off to iTunes, or wherever you get your fix from. (If that’s the corner of Delancey and Pitt then I think we have our wires crossed).
