Starting a new topic, does anyone else here listen to SF related
There are a number of podcasts I listen to, some of which
might be of interest to the group.
My current favourite is "Escape Pod" (http://escapepod.org/,
itunes), which is a weekly fiction podcast which puts out a new SF
storry each week. Episodes are typically 30-40 minutes long, and the
stories are usualy very good. Also associated with them are Podcastle
(fantasy) and Pseudopod (horror), though I have not enjoyed those so
"19 Nocturne Boulevard" is one I came across recently. This podcast
has a variety of material - some dramatised readings of old SF stories
("Galactic Julie's Bedtime Stories"), some original audio dramas,
serveral story series. Audio production of these are
generally very good and I have enojoyed (mst of) what I've heard so
"Welcome to Night Vale" is somewhat different, and
not for everyone.
It is done in the style of a community radio station, where the
announcer talks in a matter of fact voice of things which very strange
indeed, as if you had a small town in some HP Lovecraft type of
universe. My daughter loves it and I enjoy it, but you need a certain
type of sense of humour for this one.
When I started this message I had in mind that were other podcasts I
wanted to mention, but now that I come to think of it the ones I had
in mind are no longer ongoing - things like "The Radio Adventures of
Doctor Floyd" (an old style radio serial involving rival scientists,
time travel, and a humourous tone) is a completed story which is now
recycling old episodes.
Anyone else listen to podcasts and have
any they would recommend?
