Audiodramas you need to listen to!
Podcasts have been around for a while now but, over the last several years, have just gotten bigger. Tons of people listen to podcasts now, learning about any number of topics and listening to the news. Another growing type of podcast is the fictional audio drama!
But what is an audio drama? Radio dramas used to be all the rage before televisions were a thing. They were audio stories played over the radio. They were wildly popular, entire families sitting around the radio to find out what happens next. The most famous is likely Orson Welles' The War of the Worlds, which was so convincing people actually believed aliens were taking over.
Audio dramas are the modern version of these radio dramas. Podcasting has allowed folks to share whatever they want with the world, and storytellers have taken advantage of this medium, giving people easy access to incredible stories. You've probably heard of Welcome to Night Vale, the most famous audio drama, but it's far from the only great one out there. Here are 11 more audio dramas to add to your lists!
