Come out to the first ever live performance of The Voice of Free Planet X in Philadelphia! We're taking over the Art Church of West Philadelphia and turning it into the pulp-tastic headquarters of the End of Time Club for "The Wake of the Lacuna!"

There's no adventurers braver than the End of Time Club! With a roster straight out of pulp novels, there's nothing these daring explorers, daredevil pilots and dark vigilantes can't face!

Except perhaps, the loss of one of their own.

When the brilliant detective known as the Lacuna goes missing, its up the remaining End of Timers to make sense of the mystery. Part of The Philadelphia Podcast Festival!

Come see this live performance of an episode of The Voice of Free Planet X starring: Len 'Cruze' Webb as Tom Brayve
Isa St. Clair as Abigail Airheart
Phil Thomas as Doc Cosmos
Andy Holman as Operative 7
Sonia Williams as Rachnae
and Jared Axelrod as the host of The Voice of Free Planet X.

Event is free, but space is limited! The last live event was standing room only!

Episode 48: THE WATER'S FINE In the St. Lawrence River, the one that goes from NY to Canada, biologists have discovered pods of beluga whales with cancer. Not just with cancer, but with the highest cancer rates of any wild animal studied. Some of the dead whales are so suffused with pollutants that they qualify as hazardous waste.

Researchers have also found something else in the river: Botulism. Botulism is a disease caused by a bacterial toxin that cause paralysis, and, if not properly treated, death. It's in the fish, in the birds, the entire wildlife. It's in the soil.

And it's beautiful place. Even in the danger area, the "Area of Concern," as the Environmental Protection Agency calls it. It's one of the prettiest rivers you'll see.

This is a river that is still fished in. It is a river that people bring their families to, to boat and swim in. This river, home to toxins, to cancerous animals is frequently swam in by children.

As the world around us becomes slowly poisoned, we are determined to not let it ruin our routines. Guest reader and composer Russell Collins explores this bizarre form of courage in this episode, THE WATER'S FINE.

Russell Collins is a musical composer and singer. In addition to reading the preceding story, he also wrote the performed the score, as well as the VoFPX theme. You can find out more about Russell

"Floating Away" was performed by Folio and was made available curtsey of the of the Podsafe Music Network. You can find out more about them at

ALIENS YOU WILL MEET, another fine Free Planet X studios podcast, is going to have a live show at Dragon*Con in Atlanta. Live, real puppets will be enacting a very special extended narration, and I hope to see you there.
