Description

On a remote mountain in Hawaii, there's a fake planet Mars. Six volunteers are secluded in an imitation Mars habitat where they will work as imitation astronauts for one very real year. The goal: to help NASA understand what life might be like on the red planet—and plan for the day when the dress rehearsals are over, and we blast off for real. Host Lynn Levy has been chronicling this experiment from the moment the crew set foot in their habitat, communicating with them through audio diaries that detail their discoveries, their frustrations, and their evolving and devolving relationships with each other. From those diaries, Gimlet Media has crafted an addictive serialized documentary: the true story of a fake planet.

I can't put my finger on why, but Tristan was really annoying in this episode.

Fantastic first episode. I expected a fun, voyeuristic look at a group and got something way more emotional.

So they are simulating life on Mars? Do they ever actually go to Mars?

I find it wonderful. Although it's only vaguely about space, with some facts and good stories when relevant, it's about the human condition. Great editing, story-making, realism (tis real) and music design.

it's an alright series if you want some background noise or if you want something to fall asleep to if you don't fall asleep with the tv or netflix on. it's really just an audio reality show. for comments like "this had nothing to do with space", I can't agree with that. this podcast deals with space a lot. "The Habitat" is a simulation of what it would be like to live on Mars, obviously no one is really in space, but still, like I said, it's an alright podcast that could have been better and is utilized best for background noise.

This had very little to do with space, and felt more like a grounded reality TV show.

I honestly don't think the ads are too much. if you hate them so much just skip ahead 30sec to 1min. I hardly even noticed them. I'm only on episode 3, but it's holding my interest so far.

You got to interview a group of people that lived in a some for a year and you focused on their love life and the drama. And even then, it lacked depth. Would not recommend this podcast. I guess this wasn't at all what I expected or wanted.
