Radio Isopod is about the misadventures of the crew of the submarine, the S.S. Isopod (That’s the Slightly Shady Isopod, not Steam Ship, although there is plenty of steam aboard. Not, you know, that kind of steam). The S.S. Isopod’s primary mission is a safe haven for mad scientists to conduct their mad experiments in relative peace. When they aren’t working on their own diabolical projects, they contract out their services to evil overlords and other interested parties in need of some covert scientific work.
However, it’s not just all work and no play aboard the Isopod. The scientists, as well as the rest of the crew, make it a point to keep things fun and… interesting.
Radio Isopod brings some of the happenings aboard the ship to the world while still maintaining their super secret location. The comic and website includes discussion on the daily trials and tribulations aboard the ship, updates from the scientists themselves, and the occasional sticky (and often tentacled) situation.
The crew of the S.S. Isopod would like to welcome you aboard, as they do their best to entertain and enlighten your mad science deprived life.
The S.S. Isopod Crew
|Captain Tortuga: Captain of the S.S. Isopod. She runs a tight ship, and valiantly attempts to bring some order to the chaos. It’s not easy herding scientists, especially mad ones.|
|First Officer Marauder: First Officer of the S.S. Isopod, he is second in command. Whenever Captain Tortuga needs to take a break from her duties, she can always count on Marauder to lead in her absence.|
|Pi: The ship’s primary robot. Although there are many robots aboard the S.S. Isopod, Pi is the most advanced and has the most personality. Pi’s functions include everything from cleaning, to aiding in experiments, to being the Captain’s personal assistant.|
|Dr. Nubbins: One of the original mad scientists that has been aboard the S.S. Isopod since its maiden voyage. Her field of expertise is messing with the space-time continuum.|
|Dr. Kippers: While a full fledged PhD., Dr. Kippers never really forged a research path of his very own. He currently acts as Dr. Nubbins assistant.|
|Dr. Gestalt: A more recent crew member. She specializes in genetic recombination, bothering Pi, and keeping out of Dr. Nubbins’ way.|
|Cuddles the Giant Squid: He knows Kung Fu and has an unnatural affection for the S.S. Isopod.|
Fluffy the Sentient Phalaenopsis: Captain Tortuga’s pet mutant orchid. He’s a good boy, yes he is!
