Marsfall Podcast Review

Listen to all Marsfall episodes on their Vurbl station page.

Marsfall is an audio drama podcast set in 2047. The story of a colonial artificial intelligence unit heading towards Mars, the story focuses on many classic sci-fi themes. Exploring life on other planets, isolation in space, the potential for malfunctions. There’s a lot to unpack in this excellently-produced podcast.

The Hosts: Four men came together to create this podcast. Brian Goodheart is an award-winning audio engineer, having created feature films for several festivals. Dan Lovely is a writer and educator based in Massachusets, who has performed around the globe. Erik Saras and Sam Boase-Miller are musicians – a trombonist and cellist, respectively – who create music for the show.

The Guests: The cast of Marsfall includes many additional people, too many to name without this article getting overly long. They are all up and coming actors and actresses, who are passionate about their craft. Every voice on the show fits the sound perfectly, with the actors having natural chemistry. Cooper, the mutt who plays Luna, is perhaps the best actor on the show.

Why You Have to Listen: Marsfall is an ode to both classic science fiction and to classic radio dramas. With so many musicians in the writer’s room, the show creates a soundscape as vast as space itself. It’s a brilliant testament to both genres, and a pleasure to listen to. No podcast is easier to get lost in.
