The r/audiodrama Subreddit

Yes, I know Reddit is scary. It’s way too easy to piss someone off or run afoul of an entire community. And Redditors are very good at online fighting.

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who’s been curating audio fiction for longer than Rob, The Cambridge Geek.

The End

A nice balance to Rob’s focus on brand new audiodrama productions is The End, a newsletter that shines a light back on fiction podcasts when they’ve reached the conclusion of a season or the entire series.

Audio-Drama.com

Another invaluable database with a committed curator is Audio-Drama.com.

What Did I Miss?

This article was not meant to be an exhaustive list of all the places you can go to find your next fix for fiction podcasts. However, I’m always interested in connecting with others who help curate the listening experience for others. So if you know of something I should know about, let me know! You can email me or connect with me on Mastodon.
