At Beckett Station in Antarctica, Global energy company Advantage prepares for an expedition unlike any other. A crew of five will spend two days aboard the state-of-the-art submarine Virgil, as it slowly descends to the bottom of a newly discovered deep sea fissure. The voyage hasn’t even begun and already marine biologist Dr Marion Straker finds herself at odds with the clashing egos and fawning yes-men of the Antarctic base. And worse than that is the doubt. The inescapable feeling that she doesn’t deserve to be there.

Absolutely Brilliant Podcast. Great acting, story and production. Each episode ends leaving you enthralled & wanting more. Kind of reminds me of a mix of Alien & Life movies. Well done and looking forward to more episodes. Highly recommended!!!

Haven't listened to this one yet, but I'm sure the acting is great, production value is awesome and the story is riveting. Definitely Human hooked me with Mars Corp, and kept me with The Bunker (the order I listened, not necessarily created in that order). I SERIOUSLY can't wait!!!!!!
