Description

A limited series, science fiction/horror audio drama podcast, follows the arrival of two xenoarcheologists on a small world orbiting a binary star. But what starts off as an expedition to survey the planet and the remains of a lost alien civilization, turns into a monstrous game of cat and mouse, as the two scientists are left to face the creatures that killed the planet in the first place. Told from two alternating perspectives, Janus Descending is an experience of crossing timelines, as one character describes the nightmare from end to beginning, and the other, from beginning to the end.

I know we're supposed to feel bad for her right now but I don't. Like, not at all. Her stupidity and lack of concern for either of their safety is why their mission is doomed and she's where she is. She got what she had coming. And yet she's playing the victim. It's really annoying.

Chel is a fantastic example of where arrogance and too much pride will get you. And her degree of arrogance is astronomical.To be like, "If we don't go down there and discover this lost civilization right now then NOBODY will ever discover it until the end of time." 😐🙄

Great stuff. Loved the acting, sound design and atmosphere this show created. Wish there were a bit more twists along the story front (felt way too similiar to ALIEN/PROMETHEUS tbh) but this was such a pleasure to listen to after hitting a string of bad horror story podcasts. Hope they get to do their second series (haven't checked if it's out yet). Very recommended.

I'm currently listening to episode 4 and I'm hooked. Well actually I was hooked right from episode 1! The voice acting is superb and conveys the raw emotions perfectly. The style of the narrative (alternating accounts, field reports, mission logs, rescue transcripts, etc) is unique and refreshing - something you don't see so often in podramas. Then of course, there's the premise of the story. I got chills listening to Chel's account at the end of episode 1. Truly engaging. Highly recommended for all you scifi/horror/mystery podcast fans out there!
