The first season (or maybe first few seasons?) was about archival work, similar to the early seasons of the Magnus Archives. I remember that tapes or files were talked about, and maybe a castle or manor?

The most distinguishing factor is that, after some major story event, the setting shifted drastically to be about an expedition team in an alien world/universe. It was described as massive constructions of metal (or concrete?).

This was most likely between 2010 and 2020.

  • Hi, welcome to SF&F. What was the format, was it fully narrated, or were there multiple performers for different characters? Was there dialog or was it read like it was mission reports and e-mails?

  • @DavidW Multiple performers, dialog. I think the recording was diegetic, first as part of archival work and then as mission logs. Commented Feb 4, 2023 at 0:26

It's Archive 81. Found by going through several lists of podcasts similar to The Magnus Archives. According to Wikipedia:

The show follows the story of an audio archivist named Dan, who has recently been hired for a job that involves reviewing and cataloguing a set of old audio tapes
