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 Javier’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 can’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.
