Living on Mars

A man who applies for a job on Mars, Walt Disney, a pot seller, and the taxi driver who explains it all.

A man who applies for a job on Mars, Walt Disney, a pot seller, and the taxi driver who explains it all.

The strange wander that is Living on Mars, from the Danish podcast Third Ear. Third Ear is known for adventurous storytelling, cinematic sound design, and dual language productions (Danish and English, with no translation). This piece is almost all in Danish - so you'll likely want the transcript, here!

Third Ear co-founders Tim Hinman and Krister Moltzen sat down with Third Coast to talk about early podcasting, space travel, and what U.S. producers can learn from European radio... in behind-the-scenes.


Photo of Tim and Krister on Mars was snapped by Peter Hove Oleson.

This episode of Living on Mars is part two of a four-part series Third Ear produced for the Danish newspaper Politken. Danish speakers among you can listen to the other parts (on the space race, being trapped in a broken submarine, and reality television!) in their archive (#030-#033).

Third Ear's website is a trove of stories and eye candy, too (press play!).

Sound Matters is Tim's latest series in English.
