ACHTUNG!: You might have noticed we had some issues with the release of episode 6 on Wednesday. It seems that for some reason people who were subscribed to the show weren’t able to listen to the latest episode, and instead were hearing the 20 second Acast ad. We don’t know why this was and Acast haven’t been able to fix it, so this afternoon we published a second copy of episode 6 to make sure that all of our subscribers could listen to it.
First of all we’re sorry to anyone who was looking forward to the new episode and wasn’t able to access it. That really sucks. We were told that having the Acast+ early access option on the show wouldn’t effect the normal weekly release of free episodes, but clearly that hasn’t been the case. We also apologise to anyone who now has two copies of episode 6 in their podcast feed making it look all messy and cluttered!
We’re working with Acast to make sure this doesn’t happen next Wednesday, but if you still have problems getting the latest (or any other episodes) then please, please let us know so we can sort it out for you.
Hope you enjoy the episode 🙂
There are different kinds of love; love for family, love for our jobs, love for that guy or girl you met during cognac Thursday, and of course, the greatest love of all – love for MarsCorp. In all of these relationships it’s important to make sure they remain appropriate, which is to say the level of love and affection you show is limited to stay within certain moral and physical boundaries. Except for your love of MarsCorp – your love for MarsCorp has no boundaries.
After the events of episode 5, Hob is now recognised for her abilities and even getting a bit of love from the Martians. But there’s one Martian in particular Hob would like a bit of love from, and he seems to like her, buuuuuuut this is Mars, so getting with him isn’t going to be that easy.
Of course, the challenges of turning around a terraforming colony don’t take a break for the sake of Hob’s love life, but for a multitasking pro like her, combining a quest to get laid with a mission to unveil a mysterious saboteur who wants to kidnap the base manager is a piece of cake.

If you don’t want to wait week to week for new releases you can get all the remaining episodes right now.

*We have the rainstone back now. It was in the fridge.
We still want MarsCorp to reach more people, but to do so we need your help. If you haven’t yet, please leave a rating on iTunes (or wherever you get the show from), it really does help the show reach more people.
There are other ways you can support MarsCorp, like sharing our posts on Twitter and Facebook or by buying an OFFICIAL MarsCorp mug.
