EP Flash: Oasis (http://escapepod.org/2005/06/06/ep-flash-oasis/)

By Greg van Eekhout (http://writingandsnacks.com/).
Read by Stephen Eley.

You turn a lever that pops open the cover of the control pad. There’s a big red button labeled OPEN AIRLOCK. You jab it. Then you jab the CONFIRM button. Then you push the handle thing, and it’s all over.

This was very compelling, despite the lack of much happening within the text.  It did well conveying the sense of cabin fever that must be inevitable in a situation like that and makes me wonder how long I could last in that setting before I went totally bugnuts.
