Yesterday, the 59th issue of The End, the weekly newsletter that shines a light back on audio fiction shows after they’ve reached the finale of a season or the conclusion of the series, was sent to 1,754 inboxes around the world. If your inbox wasn’t one of them, here’s what you missed:

Featured Shows

These are my personal recommendations for great audio fiction. As with all things in life, YMMV.

🤘🏼🎸🛸 • Who Killed Avril Lavigne?, a dramatized scifi comedy from Super Normal Productions (Complete, 1 season, 8 episodes | 4h 40m — Come for the 90s music, stay for the comedy. This one is a non-stop riot that hits all the marks for a quality show.)

🚀🔧🌌 • We Fix Space Junk, a dramatized scifi comedy from Battle Bird Productions (4 seasons, 48 episodes | 14h 50m — I didn’t think this show was for me, but then I listened and proved myself wrong. It’s funny and thoughtful at the same time. A nice and cozy listen, I think!)

Complete Series

These shows have reached the end of the entire story so that you can enjoy the whole tale all at once!

⛏️🔮😇 • Power from the Blazing Stone, a narrated scifi series from Alexander Augustus & Alexander Augustus (Complete, 1 season, 5 episodes | 0h 56m — This was an artwork collaboration with Cornish Lithium, the first lithium mine in Europe.)

Season Finales

These shows have reached the end of a season, but more seasons are in the works:
