Ruby the Galactic Gumshoe (ZBS Foundation)

Ever heard of this one? It's a radio sci-fi drama that's divided into multiple stories, aka, Ruby, Ruby 2, Ruby 3, you get the pattern.

No? You're absolutely mystified?

Ruby is a galactic gumshoe. A good one. She travels the galaxy with T.J. Teru, an archaeologist from Summa Nulla like Ruby, Rodant Kapoor, a ratlike humanoid that screws up a lot, and And/Or, a techie from the Digital Circus.
This series isn't widely known, and that's a shame, because it's quite good. I first listened to it on a road trip when I was a little kid, and I fell in love with the series. I'd recommend buying it sometime and listening to it when you've got the time to.
Ruby is nothing like conventional sci-fi. It's edgy, dark yet light, funny, and makes you think. Ruby's plots are unlike anything I've seen before, except maybe a little Asimov here and there. Actually, I really don't know how to describe it well enough. It's great, that's it.
So listen to it if you can, and post any comments here.
(And BTW, I felt that this would fit into Books rather than Music.)

And that would be...?
