Sourced from a collection of Lost Pilots, Seaton Kay-Smith and Nick Hunter, along with a special guest or two, bring you new half hour comedy radio plays. Grounded at the terminal of life, these Lost Pilots could have gone somewhere, could have been a contender, but now they’re fated to spend eternity in conceptual limbo. How low can they go? Pretty damn low. From interdimensional assassinations to admin in the year 2549. Ghost hunting office workers to a brilliant detective whose mind is clouded by his missing cat. These are the Lost Pilots with Nick and Seaton.
