When: Sometime in the future, don't worry about it

Who: Madam Xandra, a love & sex advice radio host

What: A daring jailbreak, an idiot president named Joot Blark, a pony heist, a Nazi robot, tons of great sex-positive advice from Madam Xandra, and a whole lot more

Hey everyone! Amy here. Back in 2015, I wrote and produced a sci-fi podcast called Cosmic Love. It was nerdy, it was weird and funny, it was LGBT-positive, it was 100% me. Back then I described it as Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy meets Savage Love... with just a twist of Die Hard. (I know that sounds crazy, but trust me, it's accurate.)

Fast forward 4 years, and America... looks like a very different place. People had been asking me if I was ever going to do a Season 2 of Cosmic Love for years, and this winter I realized it was finally time. Season 1 was about a takeover by religious terrorists and focuses on the struggles of the LGBT community. Season 2, on the other hand, is about taking down a fascist government and what it means to be an ally in these insane times. (Plus, you know, a three-headed pony heist and Nazi robot and all of the other bonkers sci-fi stuff that I find delightful.)

As you can see, I'm doing some Very Important Directing.

I pulled in some classic Trap Street talent for Season 2 (Katie Pelensky, Kimberly Alexander, Jesse Abbott Chin, Luke Rampersad, Clinton Roper Elledge, and Lena Valentine) and welcomed some talented new friends into the family as well.

All of Season 1 is available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, and at Topless Robot. Season 2 is also available on all of those platforms, with a new episode released every Thursday. Season 1 provides some character backstory for the world and for Madam Xandra herself, but it's not necessary to understand Season 2, so... choose your own adventure.

And remember, there's nothing between the docking bays.
