LOOK. I never said it would be the MORNING of September 19, I just said it would be ON September 19, so I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT.
It's episode 61, and incredibly, it seems our crew might have actually lost some brain cells over the hiatus. I swear, if there's a skull and crossbones on it, this crew wants to eat it, marry it, or at least put it in the garage next to something flammable.
In this episode:
June Clark Eubanks as the Albatros Tim Sherburn as Colin Bonnie Brantley as Donna and Jessie David S Dear as Dr. Theo Eric Perry as Dr. von Haber Zetzer Kevin Hall as Greg Aaron Clark as Le Bichon Frise Richard Cowen as Leet Sarah Golding as Mrs Sheffield & Henri Shannon Perry as Olivia and Madeline and Richard Nadolny as your Narrator. Our artwork is by Lucas Elliott; our music is composed and performed by John Faley. This episode was directed by June Clark Eubanks. Oz 9 is written and produced by Shannon Perry.
Our comic book is nearly out! Keep an eye on @oz9podcast on Twitter and our Etsy store at etsy.com/shop/Oz9podcast.
Written by Lee Shackleford of the awesome sci-fi audio drama Relativity, this bonus episode exposes you to yet more of Oz 9 that you were hoping to avoid.
Is it possible an advanced alien species is coming aboard the ship? Well, yeah, I mean — they're in space. But, are they friendly? This is the Oz 9. What are the chances?
HUGE thanks to Lee, who wrote AND produced this episode despite all our mostly unintentional efforts to thwart him. BTW, Lee is an amazing voice and stage actor, writer, and human being, so if you want to get in contact, find him at shacklefordfreelance.com.
We'd like to dedicate this second hiatus episode to our one fan in Zambia.
To date, according to our stats, there have been 86 downloads in Zambia. We figure that's one fan who listened to every episode, including all the hiatus and bonus stuff, and to him, her, or them, we say a profound "thank you!"
And the same "thank you" to everyone who listens. We know there's more important stuff you can be doing, like thinning out your spatula collection or arranging your vegetable garden in descending order, but you chose to spend it with us. That means a lot.
All the very best, space monkeys.
From yer ever-lovin', Crew
"The hiatus ate us!" That line, courtesy of the brilliant Bonnie Brantley, is all too true.
We started our hiatus with great plans to do all kinds of fun Oz 9-y things in all that copious free time, only to have our ideas evaporate in the harsh light of real life.
Sorry. But here's some of us talking about stuff. Does that help?
This one is a beast. Go to the bathroom, get some water, maybe load up on some snacks. Is your listening device charged?
Get comfy. We have a lot to tell.

You've been awesome! No, really. I'd love to be able to reward your patience, but instead I just have an episode. I know it's not much, but I made it myself.
One more episode to close out the season: are you ready?
No. You're not. Sorry, but you are SO not ready.

With just three episodes (well, this one plus two more) left in the season, is that a cliff I see ahead? With a small branch protruding from its face, just right for hanging?
Things are moving along at a rapid pace, much like the Oz 9 isn't, and there are surprises, tears, laughter, warming of hearts, girding of loins, rending of garments, and possibly smoochies ahead.
Oh, and you're gonna want to stick through the credits this time. YES, WE DID THAT THING WHERE WE PUT SOMETHING IMPORTANT AFTER THE CREDITS, WOULD IT KILL YOU TO LISTEN TO THEM ONCE IN A WHILE?

This episode begins with a funeral, so you might want to have tissues handy.
The production assistant was supposed to get hypo-allergenic flowers for the ceremony but managed to find hyper-allergenic ones, which don't only make you sneeze, they cram themselves up your nose until you beg for mercy.
The PA has been fwipped, so if you have even remotely appropriate experience, we're hiring.

I'm contractually obligated to tell you that we're running a Kickstarter campaign to try to fund turning Oz 9 into a comic book. So please give us money, if you can, or tell other people to give us money. Or both. Thanks and whatever.
Here's a surprise: Jessie doesn't like comics. She says they're too colourful and she's never read one. I would have recommended she read them when she's not in a bad mood, but maybe that's what she's already doing?
Anyway, you know the drill. You've been listening to these people. Gourd knows why.

Until next time, Space Monkeys!
A rift in time and space causes four members of the Oz 9 crew to get pulled off the space ship (bringing the median IQ up a significant number of notches) and swapped with four members of the EMF (aaaaaaaaaaand we're back to where we were, IQ-wise).
This is part two of a special two-part crossover with the frankly hilarious secret agent comedy, Mission: Rejected. If you haven't heard part one yet, stop, put us on pause, go out, listen to part 1 on the Mission: Rejected feed, come back, take us off pause, because from this moment forward....
I'd say "spoilers," but let's face it... it's mostly nonsense.
Be sure to listen to the fantastic comedy being dished up at Mission: Rejected (https://missionrejected.simplecast.com/). You won't regret it. Much.
