Our directory of finished audio fiction shows continues to grow! We’re closing in on 900 listings, which is pretty impressive. It’s also becoming more and more work to keep it maintained, so I’m once again asking for your support! One small yearly contribution does a lot to offset the costs, so if you enjoy this free service, please consider becoming an Individual Supporter or Supporting Creative Shop. It’s cheap and 100% of the proceeds are used to keep The End doing what we do best.

I’ve added a new Collection called Super-long Listens. Instead of grouping by theme, style, or genre, this Collection of 75 shows does exactly what it says on the tin. Whether you need entertainment to make it through a boring job, long intercontinental flight, cross country car ride, or just don’t like your stories to end too quickly, this list of shows with run-times of 18 hours or more will keep your ears filled with good stuff.

Let’s get into it, shall we?

Featured Recommendations

I’ve listened to every episode of these shows, and proudly recommend them to you. As with all things in life, YMMV.
