WHAT IS STATION BLUE?
Station Blue is an Audio Drama Podcast by Chad Ellis. It has been downloaded over 150,000 times and was a finalist in 3 categories of the 2019 Audio Verse Awards.
“Desperate to find meaning in his life, troubled Matthew Leads takes a job as the caretaker of an Antarctic Research Facility. An atmospheric isolation horror following his struggles with mental illness, a broken heart and the suffocating presence of Station Blue.”
Station Blue uses storytelling, empathy and atmosphere to build horror rather than jump scares and gore. It pulls from Chad’s experience with long distance backpacking and bipolar disorder. The second of Station Blue’s three seasons is currently in development and bonus material is being produced on Patreon.
Station Blue is a 3 season story following Matthew Leads during his Summer in Antarctica.
Season One is 11 episodes long. The first episode released on February 22nd, 2018 and the finale released on November 29th, 2018.
Season Two will be 7 episodes long and is expected to release in the second half of 2019.

What people are saying about Station Blue
“This audio drama is masterful in its command over atmosphere. Between its minimalist score, its unobtrusive sound design, and its downright visceral foley sound effect work, Station Bluetransports the listener to the station, filling the listener with as much dread as Matthew feels.” - Discoverpods Six Horror Audio Drama Podcasts Beyond “The Black Tapes”
“I love stories that stick with you, where they slowly creep back into your mind after you think you’ve forgotten. I like a story that slowly builds suspense and horror to make something truly frightening. Station Blue delivers this type of horror. This is a great audio drama that you really don’t want to miss.” - Alex Hensley of Audio Drama Rama
“The horror here is in the silence, both around Matthew and inside him. The creator, Chad Ellis, is coming from his own personal experience here, as someone who also has Bipolar 2 disorder, and fuels his reasons why he made Station Blue the way it is. It's a wonderful example for healthy and accurate depictions of mental health.” - Elena Fernandez-Collins
“In this season finale of slow-burn psychological horror Station Blue, the narrative is interlaced with flashbacks to help contextualize the events of season one while also giving even more emotional weight to such an emotional first season. To explain more about this finale would be to give anything away, but its plot is, as always, accompanied by Chad Ellis’s intimate and moving writing and performance.” - Wil Williams Highlights
