Star Cops 1 – An Instinct for Murder

Welcome, we hope you enjoy your stay.

This is the very first episode of a brand new podcast, only the fourth time that we’ve done this! We should be experts at this by now, and yet somehow I still didn’t set any of this nonsense up until the night before it was supposed to be released. An Instinct for Murder, written by Chris Boucher and aired on July 6th, 1987.

Don’t you find it interesting that when Nathan is in the interview room that the Americans and Russians aren’t on the video call? There are like 4 video calls happening at once but only two speak. Presumable in this future video calls are charged by the minute? I get one is supposed to be Swedish and the other Eastern German? He says to her “unlike you I was elected to office.”
