Midnight Burger


When Gloria took a waitressing job at a diner outside of Phoenix, she didn't realize she was now an employee of Midnight Burger, a time-traveling, dimension-spanning diner. Every day Midnight Burger appears somewhere new in the cosmos along with it's staff: a galactic drifter, a rogue theoretical physicist, a sentient old-timey radio, and some guy named Caspar. No one knows who built Midnight Burger or how it works, but when it appears there's always someone around who could really use a cup of coffee. "When the waves of the universe crash unrelentingly, when the stars seem indifferent to your plight, suddenly there is a diner." We open at 6.

    Hard to describe, but oh so good!
    It’s a funny sci-fi soap opera. Or something like that. Anyway, it is great! The story is so unique yet so engrossing. The writing is great and the acting is wonderful. I can’t say enough how much I love it! And each episode draws you in more. You really start to care about the characters.

    I can’t give this show enough stars.

    It’s heart beats for you
    If you love a great story If you love tacos If you’re looking for something that shows you there is something still good in human brings, in humanity. Listen to Midnight Burger, the shift starts at 6.

    Tricks you into Christian propaganda
    Starts off fun and silly but then steadily becomes a clearly Christian podcast with scripture readings and lessons. Could have been good.
  • EstimatedProphet1
    Super fun
    It’s great
  • Memetic
    If you are not a bible-thumper this is not for you. Couldn't stand the constant 'Christian' homilies. Not my cup of tea. I'm a Native American/Buddhist.

    Craziest Premise with Hilarious Characters!
    This is so fun and funny. I love each and every Character! You couldn’t leave one of them out…they all play off of each other so well. Each episode has its own story based on where they *SPOILER* …you’ll have to listen to find out what that is! 5 Stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️🎉🤣

    A must listen to podcast - don’t miss out
    I’m fairly new to podcasts and happened upon Midnight Burger…best per chance watch ever…great characters, great storyline, and amazing actors. Couldn’t even try to pick a favorite…whatever you are watching now, stop and watch! I can’t wait for season 3!

    Such a great listen
    This is a really fun podcast. Good voice acting, interesting stories, really cool concept. I enjoyed this as much as I’ve enjoyed any audio drama podcast.
  • yourbirdcantsing
    Like a good burger.
    This is the kind of show that gets better and better the deeper in to the story you get. After finishing Mockery Manor, I felt I had a podcast void, Midnight Burger filled that void. Now I need an update from both podcasts!
  • Kobra4now
    4.8 seriously?
    This show should hands down break the star chart period. Even has me writing out the period, you know for emphasis. I’ve listened to a lot of podcasts. Maybe all of them.. not sure? F@ this is a great show! Thank you
  • Julonred
    Have listened to nothing else for the last two weeks. So damned good.
  • born in St. Louis
    Simply the best
    A must listen. Hope there is more to come
  • Draged0
    Cheeky and Fun
    At first I was cautious of the story line. I soon fell in love with the voice acting, plot, storyline…. This was a lot of fun and I can’t thank them enough for putting this out there.

    Midnight Magic
    Midnight Burger is an amazingly deep, witty, and exciting podcast and it’s probably my favorite show ever. The writing is fabulous and it’s made up of those conversations that we have when we are up late at night looking into the vastness with a friend, when suddenly you strike up a conversation of wonder that makes you think past our existence. The show makes you want to believe. There are some words and lines that speak within me, the kind of words that resonante with your spirit and make you feel a slight tremble that causes your hair to rise. Excellent.
  • kgappraiser
    We open at 6!
    Incredibly fun and entertaining! Effie and Zebulon are the best- just a great show.
  • OPJelloQueen
    Fun and Chaotic
    So this is actually a really lovely and funny podcast. It kind of took the surrealism of The Far Meridian and the comedy of Wooden Overcoats and turned that mix into a great sci-fi series. And it definitely has the production value of those two podcasts as well. Looking forward to the next episodes! Update: So sometimes when podcasts start to have more a plot than “crazy things happen sometime” it gets less touching and calming. That’s not what happens here. The writers, the actors, and sound designers put so much love and car that it keeps getting better. It keeps getting deeper. I absolutely relisten to the more isolated early episodes, but I enjoy the more plot driven episodes just as much. Looking forward to more of the adventure!

    Was Once A Great Podcast… Fell Victim to a Common Mistake
    This show began beautifully. It was creative, well written, well produced, wildly entertaining, etc. with time it fell victim to success and began feeling the need to do what so many other programs of all sorts did. They “break up” the main cast and add new and unnecessary characters. This prevents actually story from moving forward and kills the show. Another problem is that one of the new characters was performed by a mouth actor rather than a voice actor.
  • regularolpodcastlistener
    Good writing, good voice acting, and an easy to follow story… what more could you ask for?? 10/10
  • Andetomas
    This production is profoundly beautiful. It really is something special. The general narrative addresses fundamental issues of existence with no pretension. Can legit say “I laughed, I cried”. One of the finest fiction podcasts, ever!
  • LindaJeanBW
    Season 2 Finale
    Season Two Finale was well worth the wait!! Cannot wait for Season 3 to begin! I am obsessed with this podcast!! 🥰 I’ve re-listened to every episode multiple times - it’s so well done!
  • pvnts
    Love the podcast, not the subscription
    Paid for the subscription, can’t even listen to the newest episode even though it’s downloaded and shows I’m a subscriber and playing all older episodes. Love the show overall, but… not a fan of paying money to not even get the benefits
  • threefurrykids
    This podcast is so much fun!! I randomly stumbled across it and glad I did!!
  • Bzxk
    My absolute favorite of all podcasts
    Interesting, unusual, beautifully acted with a wide range of expression, engagingly written and with a distinctive sense of humor—as I said, Midnight Burger is my absolute favorite podcast of all time
  • kmk1029878
    Just so good
    The combination of humor, mystery, old timey music, and science is just so unexpected and delightful. I have struggled with some humorous podcasts but this is so well done I often laugh like an idiot in my car while listening. The voice acting is great and the production quality is top notch!

    Midnight Burger makes life better
    This show has been a light in the dark. After becoming disabled by a recently diagnosed chronic illness, and a mysterious one for which it is hard to receive treatment, I found it difficult to do much at all for a time. I lay there sick, with the thoughts that come to a person when they body is under attack. When it became difficult to hold a book, I started listening to podcasts. This podcast has enriched my daily life. I have something to look forward to and sometimes a scientific factoid to ponder between episodes. I can become totally carried away with the hilarious & intelligent script and characters. It makes me so happy. It makes me forget the pain for a time. Thank you to all involved in making this show for continuing to write this series. Your hard work is not just appreciated, but treasured. (I only wish I had financial means to support this project as well.)
  • RhodesyB
    The most recent, “Interlude: Vela”…
    brought me to literal tears. If the creator/writer happens to read reviews, you should know, that, this is a beautiful show. Thank you for making it!
  • ck do ufk
    I just love how different this show is
  • Dwangmanii
    Love the show, but …
    Love the show, but I’m not going to write a review for the show - that’s what everyone else is doing. Instead, I’m going to write a review for “Science News” the extra episode just before E19. It was beautiful and brought me to tears. I am a science teacher who discovered a while ago that Carl Sagan’s golden record was actually a message for Earthlings. I introduce the gr to my students and have them create their own “This is us” golden records. They think it’s an assignment about Earth science, but what it turns out to be is their own record of what they love about our home and why they want to be part of taking care of it. It’s a beautiful thing. We left the planet and discovered ourselves. (I know an astronaut said something like that - it’s true.) I have never come across anyone else who also sees the golden records in this way until today while listening to “Science News”. More please. Your intergalactic perspectives are entertaining, yes, but also enlightening and even, in a round about sort of way, hopeful. Ms. Love

    Doctor who meets Guardians of the Galaxy!!
    I LOVE this story! This podcast is so unique from other stories.If you like doctor who you’ll love this one.No spoilers.But this story is about the main characters constantly traveling across the universe.While serving coffee and helping others along the way.It’s incredibly funny and heartfelt.I can’t wait for the new episodes!
  • EverBethany
    Comic Sci-Fi with Compelling Core
    I’m in love with the warmth and zaniness of this show. Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy type of semi-satire with a lovable cast of characters (even the most prickly) and some great questions both for the characters personally and the narrative to keep you listening.

    One Heck of a Feel-Good Space Romp
    You know that feeling of slight trepidation mixed with comfort that permeates a Waffle House experience at the wee hours of morning? Welcome to Midnight Burger, the auditory equivalent of a warm plate of house fries and good conversation shared with a friend on a sticky vinyl tablecloth. I downloaded Apple Podcasts just so I could leave this review in the hopes that someone is convinced to listen. It’s weird, it’s wonderful, and for a show largely dealing with alien life and the unknown vastness of space, it’s endearingly human. The cast does a wonderful job of conveying a misfit group bonded by uncertainty, and the humor is quick, quippy, and intelligent. I’ve felt right at home as a huge Star Wars and occasional Star Trek fan in the colorful and heartwarming world of the show. Randomly being recommended this show has been a fantastic surprise as it’s truly challenged me to think more deeply about philosophical concepts of life and love without making me drained and hopeless. I hope you’ll join me at Midnight Burger. Milkshakes are on me. See you soon.

    My New Favorite Sci-Fi???
    Stumbled upon this after seeing it advertised on Unseen and thought "well if *they* think it's worth promoting, then I gotta at least give it a shot." And I was not disappointed in the slightest! Midnight Burger is funny, heartfelt, dramatic, and frankly has made a strong case for itself as one of the best sci-fi audio dramas currently running. Whether you've listened to audio dramas before or not, this is an easy recommendation. Plus, the monthly release schedule makes it pretty easy to catch up without feeling like you're falling behind, which is a nice plus in my book. 10/10, 5 stars, every day a new episode drops is a great day!
  • DNL819
    One of my favorites
    I stumbled upon this show a few days ago and have been binging it ever since. I love the premise, the actors, and have laughed out loud multiple times. This is the first time I’ve bothered posting a review, but just felt compelled to because it is that good!

    Great Show
    Great Show, but the Burger Didn’t Fight Back
  • Donald 2014
    Not a Sci-fi fan, but….
    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SHOW. discovered it a couple of weeks ago. Not even sure how I stumbled upon it. Maybe Devine intervention to lead me away he me away from a life of true crime podcasts? Or has it always been here and I’ve just never noticed?? I’ve binged all episodes and the show just gets better and better. Thanks so much for this gem of a pod.
  • Black_Dahlia_16
    I just can't with the lisp :/
    Absolutely obsessed with this podcast. But the reason I have to give 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the way Gloria speaks. Idk what it is about this unwritten rule of podcasts that they have to give the main/one of the reoccuring character(s) to someone with a speech impediment, but it literally almost ruins everything with something that has so much potential >.<
  • Kelsey.Shea.808
    First review because it’s that good!
    God I love this show! Perfect mix of sarcasm/humor and science fiction. I haven’t subscribed to a single podcast either until this one. I can’t get enough! 😫👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

    Absurd, Funny And One Sc-Fi Delight
    I love the cast and fresh storytelling with the very catchy humor. It’s all very poignant when the philosophy is that after you escape from normalcy and return back to it. You get bored of normalcy.
  • Ryan94857
    This is some great sci-fi story telling
    If you love The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, you will love this series. Remember the restaurant at the end of the Universe? Well just imagine if none of the crew knew how to control where the restaurant went in space and time! A good continuing story can be hard to come but in the podcast world. Midnight Burger is not only great Scifi, it’s a great story with fun characters. I highly recommend it!
