Hey there, welcome to Light and Tragic Company’s Patreon page for The Orphans podcast. We hope that you’ll consider supporting our show.

What is The Orphans?

The Orphans is a cinematic audio drama podcast set in the distant future that follows a group of people on a strange planet as they fight for their freedom and their lives. It focuses on themes of identity, rebellion and our relationships with one another. Featuring strange creatures, robots and epic spaceship battles, we like to think The Orphans has something for any science fiction fan.

So far, we’ve released three seasons of the show:
  • Series 1
    • This is the first season of the show, and part 1 of the main storyline. It follows a group of people who crash land on an alien planet as they try to stay alive and figure out what brought them there.
  • The Orphans: Facility
    • The second season we released, Facility is a prequel to Series 1. It follows a man sent to operate a lonely medical facility with only a robot for company.
  • The Orphans: Investigation
    • The third season we’ve released, Investigation runs parallel to Series 1. It follows a private investigator and a rebel general, as they try to find the missing founder of a galactic rebellion.

We’re currently working on Season 2 of the primary show, and a mini-series called The Orphans: Anthology, which will be a set of stand alone episodes written by guest writers from other fiction podcasts.

The current storyline of The Orphans will end with Season 3, however, we have several additional seasons planned that we’d love to get the chance to make which would expand the universe and follow what happens next after the main story concludes.

Why Support Us?

We love making The Orphans. After three years, we’re very proud to have had over 400,000 downloads from fans around the world.

However, at the moment it’s still a passion project: no one in our cast or crew is paid to make the show, and that means that organising recording sessions, post-production and making new material costs all of us money every time we release a new season.

We have no plan to stop making the show - but if you’ve enjoyed the series, any support you can send our way means the world. It helps us support our actors, afford production costs, and work on bonus content and materials which expand the universe even more.

Thank You

If you’ve chosen to support us, at any level - we just want to take a minute to express our heartfelt gratitude. It means so much to us that you liked our story enough to support it: we love making this crazy adventure, and we love being able to share it with this incredible community. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Over and out,

Zack, Ella, James and Laura
