New Comedy Podcast Space Robots Now Available In iTunes

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Space Robots, a comedy podcast about all topics mysterious and weird, has just been released and is available to listeners for subscription in iTunes and on numerous other audio sites (such as Stitcher). Space Robots focuses on redneck UFO sightings, stupid news stories, uninformed movie reviews (to name just a few topics) and is geared toward adults with an interest in the weird and a love of lighthearted comedy. 

The most recent episode, “Trouble at the Walmart” featured discussion of Israeli spy birds, naked fire truck rides, aliens not found in any database, and a creative review of Live Free or Die Hard.

Podcast host Ben Hall says, "We’re working really hard to make something really silly, but we love all the positive responses we’re getting." 

Fans of the podcast can contact Ben at spacerobotpodcast@gmail.com or on Twitter (@SpaceRobotCast) to provide feedback and ideas for the podcast.

Based in Boston, Ma. and Chattanooga, Space Robots serves listeners interested in a comedic take on all things mysterious and weird. Hosted by three Chattanooga natives, Ben Hall, his brother Nathan, and Andrew Teague, Space Robots is released each Wednesday and is available for subscription in iTunes, on the Stitcher app, and through RSS feeds.  Space Robots contains explicit material and is not appropriate for children.
