season 2 episode 13: If you say so, Frog Butt

No one said life in space would be easy. Though if they’d listened closely, the people buying seats on the Oz ships might have heard G2 officials mutter under their breath about how easy death in space was going to be …

Anyway, it’s a Thursday aboard the Oz 9, which means Leet is optimistic about their chances of survival. He’s alone in that, but hey, he’s a rebel.

Richard Cowen as Leet

Special thanks to Kiyomi for naming our zebra Greg, and thanks to Dwayne for this episode’s #NamingHeadOne suggestion.

The Annual Assassins Holiday Dinner: It’s South Side Podfest!

On December 4, 2019, Oz 9 did a live show at the South Side Podfest at Bar 171 in Chicago, Illinois.

It was the evening of the Annual Assassins Holiday Dinner. Of course, the Albatros and le Bichon Frise attended, with chaperone Cpt. Madeline, who was very upset to learn that no one with any sense at all ate the delicious-smelling food.

Thank you to Nick Mataragas and Memoriam Development for creating this fun event and putting us on the list, thank you to Bar 171 for hosting us, and thank you to those who attended. Lady Trout’s henchmen will be visiting those who didn’t laugh enough, don’t think we didn’t see you.

Special thanks to Susan Franzen and Eric Davis for traveling vast distances – though not as far as us, we’re from outer space, for crying out loud – to take on special assassin duties.

You’ve been listening to:

June Clark Eubanks as the Albatros
Aaron Clark as le Bichon Frise
Introducing Susan Franzen as the Minx and Eric Davis as the Hound dog

Until next time, Space Monkeys, Narrator out.

In this episode, the world has gone topsy turvy — up is down, left is right, enemies are friends…

But the fugu is still poisonous, and our crew are still idiotic and imperiled.

And there’s a gecko. An amorous one.

An episode so full of unexpected twist and turns, you should probably schedule an appointment with your chiropractor now.
