Episode 436 – Radiation World and the Khalsa Sisters

 radiation world logo
This week, we’re playing episode 1 of Saster & Saster’s RADIATION WORLD; later I’ll speak with the show’s creators, Hari Rai and Sahib Simran Khalsa.
In RADIATION WORLD, all that remains of humanity is locked away inside a bunker, deep beneath the earth — or so they think, until The Visitors arrive. The show is a deeply wacky adventure, equal parts Fallout and Hitchhiker’s Guide to The Galaxy.
