I used to really love the show but it feels like it’s losing focus this season. There are so many voices and it’s almost impossible to tell most of them apart. The acting seems quite wooden and there’s very little atmosphere around the characters’ voices. It’s too bad because it started out amazing.

Season 1 made sense. Now I'm listening to the 2 and it's what I already heard. I don't understand. I know sometimes podcasts sail along smoothly for a few seasons and then there's a huge snarl. I have a few (several?) I just slide by thinking I'll untangle it later but I...Read full review »

this shows breaks my heart and put it back just to shatter it all over again. but, in a good way. for me it’s not just about people trapped in the moon. it’s also about love, separation, hope, and life. honestly, probably one of my most favourite podcast of all time. and sci-fi isn’t even my...Read full review »

You won’t regret listening to it. It’s not only great storytelling but it’s inclusive. I was able to recommend it to a non-binary friend who was down about the lack of representation. It’s a story about humanity, not exclusively a tiny portion of it.

I read enough sf that I have read a lot of these kinds of stories. But. This is worth listening to. Well plotted. Well written. Nice pacing. No spoilers so I will stop np now.

Moonbase Theta, Out is a great show that is worth the listen! Season one is a little slow but it does some great character and world-building and I prefer it over the second season. Season two is still a wonderful listen that introduces some really fun characters and recontextualizes the first...Read full review »

Meaningless. I use it to fall asleep.
bluemeanieface via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/18/20
This show will reel you in with premise & format & then proceed to take all of your preconceived notions of sci-fi fiction podcasts & toss them out the window, in the best way possible of course !! A micro first season, a long-form second season, minisodes, a prequel, you name it,...Read full review »

There is so much story packed into each episode. Season 1 is one voice, telling the stories of the other people at the moonbase (and on Earth). Season 2 expands the cast and we hear more about their day-to-day lives. It's easy to fall in love with these characters!Read full review »

Season 1 is so efficiently written, acted, and produced. Not a sound or moment is wasted. Season 1 has a single narrator operating in compressed time and space, but the episodes still feel giant. So many great choices made on every level to create the maximum impact. I absolutely cannot wait for...Read full review »

A show about a communications officer doing their routine transmissions from a moon base in the process of shutting down, on its surface, sounds pretty dull. The repetition of routine statements, instead of being boring, become a vehicle for the actor playing the main character to express subtle...Read full review »

I just finished the first season of this podcast - really enjoyed it! It is fairly simple story, but with tremendous implications and meaningful things going on under the surface. It's really well done. Recommended!Read full review »

Lovely, heartbreaking and so full of humanity. Also, space. You really can’t ask for more.
denotts via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/09/19
How many repeated words of adoration is too many? Well multiply that by two because this show is worth all that and more! It's wonderfully written, brilliantly engaging, and just excellent queer rep. The cast are excellent, the sound design is fantastic, and I seriously cannot wait for more....Read full review »

A wonderful concept well acted and executed! Well worth a listen!
Kathstiel via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/01/19
I was hooked when I began listening three months ago, and was blown away by the care put into this tale. It’s scifi that gives you a real sense of what could be without providing a fully utopian view. Masterful. Thoughtful. Well done.
StevenDL via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/19/19
And not your typical space story. The episodes are short and just told in the point of view of 1 man who you can’t help but fall in love with. He’s so genuinely sweet and you just want to move planets to help him. The voice actor has a personable voice that is also enjoyable on the ears. Dying to...Read full review »

Ohhhh man I just listened to the combined Season 1 episode which was phenomenal. The steadily increasing atmosphere of an impending doom had me at the edge of my seat throughout the two hours and I wound up chewing my nails down to the quick! This is a highly underrated podcast and is a must...Read full review »
KaraPantera via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/13/19
One of my favorite things is when a podcast slowly hints at something, foreshadowing the main conflict without directly addressing it, and this podcast does that magnificently! I can’t wait for season 2!
Storyfabric via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/30/19
I loved the way the story is told in short segments that build a steady sense of impending but inevitable doom.
buttersuit via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/08/19
This show is fantastic. Episodes are short, and I ended up binging the whole season. It's heartwarming, and I didn't realize how emotionally invested I was until it just floored me.Read full review »
DahliaRiddle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/19
This is a short story told from the perspective of a man on a moon base station as it closes down ready to return to Earth. There is drama, intrigue and a love story that underpins the whole story and brings the main protagonist to life and gets you fully immersed in his struggles and...Read full review »

This one man monologue of a show is very well done. Even with only one person I still am able to feel the underlying tension of the base behind his words.
Matt pypie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/22/19
I can't recommend this show enough. It has a wonderful protagonist (well-written and well acted), excellent world-building and an emotional punch.Read full review »
Moksa95 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/22/19
This show is incredibly good. I love the juxtaposition of hard science and a shadowy dystopian future with the tenderness of true love. Roger's messages to his husband give each episode such beautiful humanity, further highlighting the isolation of Roger's position. You can tell the...Read full review »

Moonbase Theta Out is enthralling and intoxicating and haunting and makes you unable to stop listening until you run out of episodes. A story about a man stuck on the moon organzing the wrapping up of long project and is done through his daily communcations with HQ back on Earth. Roger is...Read full review »
OstiumPodcast via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/18/19
Moonbase Theta Out is many things - an official report on the weekly operations and gradual closing of a moonbase; brief, poetic messages of love to someone far away; a slow countdown by weeks and lives and conflicts to an end, most of which is delivered in the deliberate cadence of the main...Read full review »

This podcast is an amazing story told through one mans status reports back to earth from the moon. It’s wonderful, amazing and so well written. I love this podcast so much and can’t wait for the next season!
zimbellina13 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/08/19
I have always loved DJ's writing and this is no exception. I love how you can see and feel (at least parts of) the other characters even though you only ever really hear from Roger (for now). I think Leeman really helped bring Roger to life. He brings a great voice to the character even if...Read full review »

Single voice show, short episodes, amazing story. The scripting for this is so good. Look I know you are looking at the list of episodes and going but they are all so short and there is only .. stop. Just do it. This story builds so well across the season that you are going to get to the end and...Read full review »

The short episodes are a great format and each one manages to pack in a surprising amount of emotional nuance and story. Highly recommend!

Who said that you need many words to break a heart? amazing how much can fit in such short episodes
Gwenchan93 via Apple Podcasts · Italy · 03/20/19
This story is masterfully told in five minute bites. We’re given only a taste of a richly drawn world and it is more than enough. Bravo
xtined via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/10/19
This is fabulous. Beautifully written and acted, but now the torture of waiting for the next episode.

I loved the brief nature of this shows first episode. It builds the world in digestible chunks and im so excited to keep listening

Wanting to listen to something but don't have the time to get invested? This show is great. Want something a bit longer? Set it to binge. Either way this show shines.Read full review »

When you start listening to this series you find yourself curious as to how they wrap up things on the moonbase with curious interest. Then you get pulled into the events as they unfold. Then you find yourself emotionally invested. Then you wish you could just... be.. there... Very excited to...Read full review »

Really digging the storytelling and writing in this. Just wish they were longerrrr
DreadPirateJene via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/19/18
I love characters who are all quiet efficiency and warm affection. Roger has stolen my heart with his warm, slightly restrained, slightly awkward reading of poetry to a loved one.
ezgo22 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/18
After listening to the first three episodes, I’m so torn about waiting to binge them all at once or listen each release... Leeman’s performance really enhances the writing!
