I'd like to recommend a new science fiction podcast called "The Message." It's a story about a modern cryptography team trying to decode an extraterrestrial message received on Earth in 1945. The whole thing is pretty short -- just eight episodes, each under 20 minutes. I'll admit that the dialogue is contrived, and the plot will seem familiar. But it's pretty entertaining, and the story takes some good twists. Mostly, it's a nice use of the podcast format to tell a sci fi story.
