Parasitecology is a darkly comic sci-fi audio drama about Javier Duran — a suicidal nerd — and his alien parasite best friend, Cher Gandhi Statham.  After a traumatic episode, the pair strikes a deal: Cher gets free room and board, living in Javierโ€™s brainstem.  And Javier gets something he has never had: control over his spiraling emotions and crippling anxieties.

Their bond grows… until they stumble upon a devious plot endangering both their worlds, perpetrated through viral social media campaigns.  But how can they save the world if they canโ€™t get out of bed?

Season One is current releasing! Episodes will release every other Tuesday morning ET.

Please note: While Parasitecology is a comedy, it incorporates the serious and, for us, highly personal topic of mental health, including dealing with anxiety, depression and suicide. If you or a loved one is at risk of self-harm, please: get help and call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
