Lee in "War of the Worlds"Lee Shackleford is the voice of Christopher, the hapless flight surgeon on a runaway spaceship millions of kilometers from Earth.

Lee also dreamed up this whole "Relativity podcast" thing and is the head writer. And this makes sense, because he's a writer for stage, screen, and radio, with more than 150 produced shows to his credit. He's written for every kind of venue from local stages to off-Broadway to syndicated radio drama to stories for Star Trek: the Next Generation.  He's best-known for his play Holmes & Watson, in which he appeared off-Broadway in the role of Holmes, and his adaptation of Karel Capek's R.U.R., which ran off-Broadway in 2013.

alana the peoples choiceAlana Jordan is the voice of Sophia, the ultra-dedicated rigid perfectionist in the Flight Director's seat at Mission Control.

In real life Alana is one of those multi-hyphenates: actor-writer-director-comedian and did we mention voice talent? Perhaps that one's obvious. But she sings, she dances, and she cosplays like nobody else. People at conventions like Comic-Con speak of her in awed voices: "Did you see that lady who came as _______ and how she rocked the _______?"

Somewhere in the midst of all this, she has found time to appear in a variety of films, including the webseries pilot HERLOCK, in which countless fans fell in love with her as the "Dr. Watson" character Jonny Watts.

I want to give credit where it's due to two artists whose works are heard on this serial.

One of these contributes to the community of audio designers under the name "lunarthepunar." And without him (her?) we would not have our theme music. It was posted to as "Tension Building Intro." Which was exactly what I was looking for. Give it a listen.

The other is Félix Blume and his contribution to the show -- thanks to -- is heard starting in Episode 6. I don't want to spoil it in case you haven't heard Episode 6 yet, but let's say it's the sound of a particular real-world audio landscape. Monsieur Blume recorded these wonderful sounds in the wild, and for our purposes they are absolutely perfect. So we thank you, Félix -- Relativity would not be the same without this audio file. I encourage everyone to explore all of his works, on his wonderful web site which is called (naturally)
