May is my favorite month of the year for many reasons, but mostly because of these three specific days: The First of May (which is as funny as it is naughty), Star Wars Day, and my wedding anniversary. And, it’s just damned nice outside in most places around the world. But, with the very real reality of global climate change, YMMV on that last bit.

A huge shout-out to Ian from Caspian Studios for becoming the latest Supporting Creative Shop! They are the studio that made The Hacker Chronicles, which you’ll recall I had as one of my Featured Recommendations last week. Ian tells me there are some other cool shows in the works, so look for more from them soon. Thank you, Ian. Your contribution means a lot. (And yes, you too can be like Ian, and I will also say nice things about you!)

One final note before I get into this week’s announcements: Last night’s insomnia was productive, as I came up with an idea to dramatically overhaul the site and the newsletter. Don’t panic! The mission remains the same, and the outcome will also be preserved. But, I think, if I can pull it off, it’ll be more streamlined and, ultimately, better. Also, there’s no way I used all those commas properly, so should just get on with it.

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.

Hovering • 🛸🔭👨🏻‍❤️‍👨🏻 Dramatised small-town mystery/drama series from Alex Duncan & Plot Twist. Hovering is written by a queer person, about a queer person (and lots of the other creatives are queer, too!) I really enjoyed the approach taken here, where it’s presented as a series of “real-life” recordings. Lots of environmental sounds, but hardly any music bed under the dramatization. Well done! Series complete as of 21 Nov 2023. Listen to all 7 episodes in 1h 58m.

Rebel Robin: Surviving Hawkins • 📚🥐🏳️‍🌈 Dramatized fictional spinoff from Atypical Artists & Netflix. It’s a canon expansion of the Stranger Things universe and features two queer leads! Backstories and spinoffs aren’t something I normally go for. But when the production values and talent are this good, I’ll make an exception. If you loved the TV series, you’ll want this in your ears. Series complete as of 3 Aug 2021. Listen to all 6 episodes in 2h 06m.
