The Changing of the Guard
It's a new year, and a new era for the Audio Drama Production Podcast. Matthew and Robert will be stepping aside, and handing the presenter hats to Fiona Thraille and Sarah Golding. The ADPP will be a fortnightly show in 2017 and we're excited to see the podcast continue to grow alongside this great medium. Also mentioned on this episode - Nova Dark, A Scottish Podcast, and MyPodcastReviews.com As well as that, an email from Gerry Paton with links to some international radio stations outside of the BBC that are still producing Audio Drama. I appreciate that you mainly focus on independent productions, but perhaps listeners are unaware of the handful of English-speaking radio stations around the world that still produce audio drama (apart from the BBC). RTE Radio 1, for example. It's Ireland's state media-outlet and all of its radio dramas are accessible via itunes (search for 'RTE Drama') or go to the RTE website: RTÉ Drama/Drama on One - A-Z Index From the website you can search by genre (click on 'Plays - Genres' tab). The range of plays is eclectic and, surprisingly, the language is quite adult (not a problem for me, but listeners should be warned). What I really like are the short supporting audio casts for many of the plays. Writers and performers talk about how they approached the work and there are good performance tips etc here and there. Click on the 'special features' tab for those. I can recommend Death and the Beatles Fan, which starts off nerdy but becomes quite dark and humorous. Also recommended are Paulo in the Underworld and Redemption Beating. In a similar vein, Radio New Zealand produce audio drama:
