Special Announcement: Pryce and Carter's DSSPPM and Three New Mini Episodes!

Hello everyone!

Well, it's been a year. Our series finale, Brave New World came out a year ago today. Hard to believe how fast a year went by, isn't it? Well, to commemorate the occasion, we wanted to share a little bit of bonus Wolf 359 content with all of you. 

First of all: the time has come. The full Pryce and Carter's Deep Space Survival Procedure and Protocol Manual is, at long last, available! It took a year of work from practically everyone in the cast and crew, but the book is done. 

And what a book it is. Aside from the full list of all 1,001 Deep Space Survival Tips - reproduced for the first time in their full sprawling, surreal, mind-bending glory - the book also features an original essay by W.S. Carter, a foreword by Mr. Cutter, an afterword by Miranda Pryce, and handwritten commentary by a certain eccentric Communications Officer. 

Getting to make this book was a dream come true for everyone on the team - it was something we'd been hoping to make since the very start of the show. We got to produce it thanks to all of the amazing support that we got from the folks who donated to our Patreon page, and we are eternally grateful to them for all of the opportunities they gave us over the past three years. If you supported us on Patreon, check you email - your copy of the manual should be waiting for you there. For everyone else, you can get your very own digital copy of Pryce and Carter's by visiting www.DSSPPM.com

But wait, there's more! 

Last year, we got to make three mini Wolf 359 episodes for the kind folks at Spoke, as a proof of concept for our Mission Mishaps series. These were up as cleverly hidden easter eggs, and remained, for the most part, undiscovered. So, to commemorate the one year anniversary of the end of the show, we are taking these out of the vault and sharing them with the world at large. So look into your podcasting app of choice, and enjoy Adventure of a Lifetime, Step One, and Space Rage

Thank you so much to our friends at Spoke for all the support, and for the chance to bring everyone three final peaks into the early chaos on board the U.S.S. Hephaestus. 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone, and thank you so much for all of your continued support and love for the series, even a year after its ending. And, of course, a very happy birthday to Doug Eiffel, wherever he might be. 

Thank you, and enjoy. 

Mission Mishaps: A Little Night Music

The final season continues with the first entry in Mission Mishaps, our new mini episode series! These are something very special - we get to make them because we reached our $4,000 goal on our Patreon campaign! Visit our Season 4 page to listen to A Little Night Music! 

Mission Mishaps, Entry One. Hephaestus Formal Complaint #ARB062. Day 510. Eiffel tries to boost the crew's morale with a bit of sonic artistry appreciation. 

This mini episode was written and directed by Gabriel Urbina. Its music features Fur Elise by Ludwig Van Beethoven. It also featured Fantasy in C by Franz Shubert and The William Tell Overture by Gioachino Rossini. Both of these pieces come courtesy of Musopen. It also features Canon in D Major, composed by Johann Pachelbel and performed by Kevin MacLeod.  

If you enjoy this mini episode and would like more short-form content from Wolf 359, please consider signing up for a recurring monthly donation on Patreon. The support we receive month to month is what made this episode possible. If we get enough support to stay above $4,000 per month, we will have one of these every week when there isn't a full episode release. That's weekly Wolf 359 from now until the end of the year! 

Stay tuned... Episode 54: The Watchtower will be out in less than a week! 

Three Years of Wolf 359, Change of Mind Re-Released, and New Behind-the-Scenes Extras!

It's Wolf 359's birthday! Three years ago, to this day, we released Succulent Rat-Killing Tar, Little Revolución, and Discomforts, Pains, and Irregularities! Oh, back then we had no idea how much of our lives would get taken over by this crazy little show, or how many lives this series would touch in just three short years! Looking back on where we started is a really flabbergasting experience - both because of everything we've done since then and because of all the attention, support, encouragement, affection, and love that we've gotten from our listeners! 

So what are we doing to celebrate? Glad you asked! First of all, we've just re-released our first giant-sized Special Episode: Change of Mind! Originally only available through our friends at Spoke, the feature-length flashback adventure is now available for download through our website and through your favorite podcasting apps! Whether it's your first time listening or you want to relive your time with Lambert, Fourier, Hui, Fisher, Selberg, and Lovelace, there's no better time to revisit Change of Mind! 

And, after you're done listening to the Special, head on over to our Extras page for a new behind-the-scenes bonus feature: a full-length audio commentary for Change of Mind! Writer-Director Gabriel Urbina goes through every scene of the episode, sharing thoughts on the writing of the scripts, stories from the making-of, and general trivia tidbits on the making of a giant-sized episode.

Doing an audio commentary for a podcast is kind of an experiment for us, so let us know what you think! If you like it and want to hear more of these in the future, let us know! 

Thank to all of our listeners for three unbelievable years of Wolf 359. A very special thank you to everyone that's supported us on our Patreon campaign for making Change of Mind possible, and to the amazing folks at Spoke for taking the plunge and going on this adventure with us. We're looking forward to sharing a few more adventures with you before the end of the series in December! 

Wolf 359 Live: Deep Space Survival Procedure & Protocol - Recordings Now Available!

Performed on December 19th, 2015, the Alchemical Theatre Laboratory in New York City, Deep Space Survival Procedure and Protocol was the first live performance of Wolf 359. Featuring all the principal cast members performing a never-before-heard script, this show was the culmination of the first two years of Wolf 359. We are - at long last - happy to make our recording of the show available for public consumption, in both video and audio-only formats! Visit our Live Shows page to watch or download! 

Set just after the events of Episode 26, Deep Space Survival Procedure and Protocol covers one madcap day in the life of the Hephaestus crew. After dealing with plant monsters, the reappearance of a not-so-presumed-dead captain, and a supervirus that's still chilling in his circulatory system, Communications Officer Doug Eiffel is about face his biggest challenge yet: a mysterious noise coming from the comms console. With the crew to question his abilities, will Eiffel be able to solve the mystery, keep his sanity, and get everyone else to cut him some slack? Plus, normal weird signals, voodoo pulled pork, all of the air bubbles, and the importance of chit-chat. 

Anthology: Across the Sea

Hungry for more Wolf 359 after yesterday’s episode? Well, we’ve got the next best thing! Check out this week’s episode of AnthologyAcross the Sea, written by Wolf 359 creator Gabriel Urbina and starring Emma “Commander Minkowski” Sherr-Ziarko.

Jackie, a journalist in the 1920s, thought she’d seen it all when she boarded a ship headed where few dare sail. The creative team behind the science fiction audio drama Wolf 359 takes us on a spooky, stormy journey with this adaptation of Horacio Quiroga’s “Los buques suicidantes.” Directed by Gabriel Urbina, starring Emma Sherr-Ziarko, Felipe Bonilla, and Jaime Maseda. Produced by Rachel Liu. 

And check out past episodes of Anthology! There is a healthy overlap with the Wolf 359 team, with both Zach Valenti and Emma Sherr-Ziarko voicing the lead characters in previous episodes. If you’re looking for new standalone audio dramas to have in your life, this is the show for you!
