It was a banner week here at The End, thanks largely to Meet Cute, a production company and publisher focused on the romantic side of audio fiction. Seven of the updates below are from them as they work on getting their full catalog listed with us. Welcome! Most of those shows were added to our Love Is In (on?) The Air collection of shows, which is up to 43 shows, with more coming. If you didn’t get enough romance in your life yesterday, binge away!

Astute readers will notice our new Title Sponsor — Dupont Investigations. This horror/mystery series, which was co-created by LGBTQ individuals who were each honored as FY ’24 DC Arts and Humanities Fellows, recently posted the finale of their first season. It’s one of 44 shows added to our Loud and Proud! collection, and we are grateful for their support.

And yes, you too can be a Title Sponsor of The End. Or a Supporting Creative Shop. Or an Individual Supporter. Or, heck, you can buy me a beer if you like!

Seriously. These new collections are quite cool and, I think, a better way to discover additional shows you might like. I’ll have new collections to add next week, hopefully.

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.

🏕️😮☠️ • The Dispossessed — Dramatized supernatural thriller from Glisten+. The Dispossessed is part of a brand-new series of podcasts featuring top-tier SAG actors. It joins other series such as Can’t Relax, League of Wonder, and Boss Monster Adventures in the GLISTEN+ slate. The show is very well produced, and rather timely given the topic. It’s neither “jump scare” nor gory horror, so it may appeal to those who don’t normally go in for the frights. It’s a complete series with 8 episodes and a listening time of 2h 04m.

🧠🔪🏃‍♀️ • Narcissa — Dramatized scifi thriller from QCODE Media. This show is produced with all the QCODE quality you expect, presented as an unlikely scifi love story. It’s worth a listen and is complete with 8 episodes for a listening time of 4h 57m.
