Volume 5, Issue 9 of the League's Podcast they talked about possibly doing an Audio Drama discussion. They mentioned my show, We're Alive, which was brought to my attention and I'm looking to see if there's more interest for it here on Spill. Is there anyone else here that listens to them and are interested in that medium? If you do what shows do you listen to?
Only because it was mentioned on the show, and not spam, I'll provide a link here:
I can't remember exactly how I stumbled upon We're Alive, but I've been hooked since June. I'm glad the second season is here because I really chewed through the first dozen chapters in short order and was left wanting more.
There has been a downside to being introduced to audio drama through this show, however. I'm now spoiled for quality when it comes to what there is to listen to. I have given serials like HG World, 118: Migration, and others a shot; but as far as consistent, quality drama We're Alive tops my list. I highly recommend it to fans of zombie horror, horror in general, or anyone wanting to find out what audio dramas are all about.
My question to you, as someone who writes and directs audio drama is this:
Me? I've listened to just about every radio drama out there once or twice, or at least pieces. I spend so much time on our show it's hard to find time to listen to others, BUT I am a big fan of the Harry Potter books on tape. I've listened through them more than once. And I love Frosty Heidi and Frank's show. OH, and The Hunger Games.
I have Sirius/XM satellite radio and when I'm not listening to Howard Stern I listen to the Classic Radio or Book Radio channels. My favorite shows are X-1, Escape, Pat Novak for Hire, The Whistler, Dragnet, Yours Truly Johnny Dollar, Have Gun Will Travel and Phillip Marlowe.
Erm well it's one of the latter books in the Watch series:
Guards Guards, Men At Arms, Feet of Clay, Jingo, The Fifth Elephant, Night Watch and Thud! (if ya wanted to know)
But they're all quite self contained and bloody brilliant, if you ask me, so I dought you'll have a problem understanding what's going on. Also if you can't be bothered to read they're all on audio book which again are brilliant.
