Leaves are rustling outside and the season it turning colder. I always love this time of year, and it’s a great time for snuggling up with a podcasted story. Here are some good ones to keep you going through the “dark half of the year.”
This Sunday I was privileged to sit in on an interesting roundtable discussion about podcasts with the SFFaudio crew!
If you don’t know, SFFaudio is a blog and podcast dedicated to all types of audio fiction, especially classic speculative fiction. I’ve featured them a few times on Synthetic Voices.
Anyway, it was a great time, bouncing ideas back and forth about podcasts, what “mainstream” means, and how people listen to podcasts these days. Plus, there were many interesting shows mentioned, so keep an ear out and your copy of iTunes handy for quick subscription!
It’s long, about 2 hours, but that’s how they roll over there, so I say more power to them! Thanks again to Jesse for inviting me over. :-)
I had to wrestle long and hard over the Top Picks this month, so I hope they fit the bill. You’ll probably notice a few markets on the list we don’t regularly feature, along with a few we often do. And as always, the list is rather eclectic, with perhaps a slightly higher concentration of zombies…
The audio podcast portion of Synthetic Voices is back with a vengeance, delivering TONS of excellent fiction from August.
No podcasted episode this month due to my moving to a new apartment, but you can see the list below. It’s an abbreviated list, as I just wanted to get the top picks out quickly, but overall, not the strongest month for podcasted fiction anyway. There were a few interesting episodes I’m sorry to have excluded, but hopefully by now listeners will know how to seek out some solid fiction on their own…right?
I hope to have the August episode up sometime in early September (barring technical problems in my new abode).
