Audio fiction is to podcasts as broadcast dramas are to live radio. As audio has gone on-demand, so has its own brand of storytelling.
At the beginning, fiction podcasts seemed to be the refuge of sci-fi nerds and horror enthusiasts. Shows like “Welcome to Night Vale” and “Hello From the Magic Tavern” spooked and delighted listeners.
You might even be able to find a series of stories produced by someone working on your (cough) favorite public radio show.
Who’s writing audio fiction? How difficult is it to produce? And where’s it headed next?
