Special guest(s)Chris Hardwick as Klaxxon

During a routine delivery to the deleted file planet, Junkleon 7, the Planet Express crew are confronted by Klaxxon, an evil being made entirely of soundwaves from podcasts from the 21st century.

Production

On 8 September 2017, the Worlds of Tomorrow Facebook page was updated with a promotional graphic promoting "Radiorama".[1] Chris Hardwick revealed that he was voicing the villain, Klaxxon. Hardwick revealed that he pitched the idea of doing an audio episode on the Nerdist podcast to Matt Groening and David X. Cohen in 2016. The episode came together due to TinyCo, the company that runs the freemium game based on Futurama, Worlds of Tomorrow. As a tie-in to the episode, Chris Hardwick's head in a jar appears in the Worlds of Tomorrow game.[2]. On 9 September, 2017, USA Today released a one minute preview of the episode through Soundcloud.[3]

Trivia

  • This is the first audio episode of Futurama.

Quotes

    Calculon: Once you've established a character, the audience won't stand for any recasting. No matter how excruciatingly incompetent the ACTOR!
    Zoidberg: Ah, so you're getting the original writers back too?
    Calculon: No, we fire them all the time. It saves money, and it's fun!
