I’m having a heck of a lot of fun curating collections of shows, and I have two more to share with you before we get into the latest crop of audio fiction shows that have reached an ending:

  • It’s a Musical! — Musicals on the big screen, small screen, and the stage capture our hearts and minds. Here’s a collection of 20-for now-audio fiction shows that feature original musical numbers performed by the talent. Now available for your ears!
  • I’m Thinking Zombies — Whether you like them fast or slow, zombies are a major trope in popular media. Here’s a list of all the finished audio fiction shows (10 for now, with more coming) that feature the walking dead or other mindless creatures that may or may not want to eat your brains.

Feel free to make suggestions of titles I may have missed in either of those. Yes, even shows we don’t yet have in our directory. It’s one of the ways we grow!

And a huge thank you to Sarah and Thomas, both of whom became Individual Supporters this week! Thank you very, much, Sarah and Thomas. It means a lot to me that you find The End worthy of your support. For the rest of you lot, BE LIKE SARAH AND THOMAS!

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.

🛒📼🦃 • Supermarket — Dramatized comedy/sitcom from Adam Murciano, Antonio Cordero, Alexandria Benoit, Adam Blanford & Joe Diaco & 911 Podcasts. We have a range of ethnic and LGBT cast and crew members! Like a TV sitcom, but in audio form. It’s funny, sexy, and goofy in all the best and most irreverent ways. Highly recommended! Season 1 finale posted on 12 Jan 2024. Listen to the 6 current episodes in 3h 31m.

🍀⚔️✨ • Shadowmagic — Narrated fantasy from John Lenahan. John tells a captivating tale, and by that, I mean writing and performing. This is one of my favorite serialized audiobooks from more than a decade ago. I hope you love it too. Series complete as of 1 Dec 2006. Listen to all 31 episodes in 8h 56m.
