This final job was supposed to pay off all of her debts, but Kilner’s last delivery contained more than she bargained for.
When Kilner accepted the job of smuggling escapee Samantha Trapp across the galaxy, she expected the job to be over and done with quickly. But now they’re stuck with each other, and they have a job to do…
Following in the footsteps of Harry Harrison, Brian Aldiss and Douglas Adams, We Fix Space Junk is a sci-fi comedy podcast from Battle Bird Productions, written by Beth Crane (Upholstery, Ronnie and the Other World) and produced by Hedley Knights (The People’s Rock). It tells the tale of two female repairmen as they tackle jobs across the galaxy while fighting against the company that put them there.
We Fix Space Junk is written by Beth Crane and produced by Hedley Knights, and stars Beth Crane, Rebecca Evans, Jack Carmichael, Hedley Knights and several guest voices.
Battle Bird Productions are a small podcast studio with big dreams.
Our flagship podcast, We Fix Space Junk, follows in the footsteps of radio sci-fi shows of the past, such as Journey into Space and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
Beth Crane, writer of We Fix Space Junk, grew up listening to radio drama of all kinds. After completing a Master’s Degree in Scriptwriting she focused on the short play and sketch format, with her pieces being performed in short play festivals across London.
Hedley Knights has been working as a Sound Engineer for over a decade, working in TV, music, film and live sound. With an obsessive attention to detail and a love of creating immersive sound, audio drama was a perfect match.
We have many other podcasts in the pipeline so keep an eye out on our Facebook or Twitter!

Much like all indie podcasters, we rely on support from our listeners to keep everything going! As writer Beth Crane mentioned in a tweet a while ago, it takes sixty-eighty hours of work to put together an episode of We Fix Space Junk and although we really love it, it’s a lot of work!
Response from listeners on Patreon has been unexpected and amazing so far. If you’re interested in supporting us financially, below are a couple of links. Here’s to so many more episodes!
(Patreon allows you to give a set amount per month for monthly rewards — we currently have a lot of bits and pieces for patrons to enjoy — and Ko-Fi and Paypal allow you to just give a one-off donation)
Merry Brucemas! We’ve had a great time producing Series Two and this month we met our Patreon stretch goal to make a Christmas episode! We were true to our word and it is available now to all Patrons!
But fear not! You need not miss out as anyone who becomes a patron as of now or donates £1 or more (or equivalent currency) on Ko-Fi or Paypal will be emailed with download instructions! It will also be available for direct purchase on BeatStars!
This is a bit of an experiment, so Beth will be standing by in case it crashes!
Our Christmas special is a one-shot. It’s set at an indeterminate time near the end of season one and doesn’t have any bearing on the overall plot. It’s going to be available online to buy indefinitely, so if you fancy a bit of Brucemas cheer this time next year, it’ll be ready and waiting for you.
We do this for free because we love it and because we love all of you, but it’s been a lot of work making three seasons over the past nine months! We’ve released 25 episodes this year and the response we’ve had has been amazing. If you fancy buying the episode, we’d love you to (consider it a Brucemas present to us!), but you aren’t missing anything plot-crucial if you dont!
Now we’re going to take a little break, reinvigorate ourselves and then get the storyboards out for our second mini-season!
This is the first time we’ve done this, so it may make our site explode! But hopefully it’ll all work smoothly! Please note that Patrons can instantly download, Ko-Fi givers will get instant instructions but with Paypal we will have to manually email you so it’ll take a little longer!
The Spirit of Brucemas: A We Fix Space Junk Special Episode
(set during the events of Season One)
Brucemas comes but once a year, and most repairmen don’t get the chance to experience it as they are in deep cryo. But this year, Kilner is awake and determined to celebrate Brucemas, no matter what Automnicon might throw in her way…
