Space Ranger 421 is an audio drama podcast created by Jonathan James and is produced by Chad Ellis (Station Blue).

Space Ranger 421 is a tale of survival. Responding to a distress signal on Mars colony MR-54821, a group of space explorers uncovers a deadly government secret that could change the face of humanity, but will they be able to escape the red planet to tell the tale? 

Believe it or not, Space Ranger 421 is based on a T-shirt! 












Using this t-shirt as the basis for the show's main character, Devlyn Drax, combined with Jonathan James' love for Pulp Sci-fi and Noire storytelling led to the creation of Space Ranger 421. 

As an LGBTQ writer and creator, Jonathan James created Space Ranger 421 with the intention of creating a blockbuster type show involving LGBTQ characters and cast members. The diverse cast reflects this, as the show features some prominent members of the LGBTQ community from both the world of audio-drama and beyond not unlike the universe itself
