Our aim is to…

  1. Help you get started creating or participating in audio drama, even if you’ve never recorded or edited a single piece of audio before.
  2. Help you to dream up and write creative scripts, from sprawling fantasy universes, to dark, futuristic space battles. You can do anything you want in audio.
  3. Help you to find a recording and production method that suits you. From getting a group of friends and recording in your living room, to sending out scripts to actors all over the world and have them email their recorded lines back to you.
  4. Help you choose what equipment and software would be best suited to your needs.
  5. Help you to promote your show and grow your audience.
  6. Help you to look at how you might be able to monetize your show and build a business model around audio drama production.

As well as our own input and experiences, we feature regular interviews with big names in audio drama and sound production such as Dirk Maggs (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy/Good Omens/Neverwhere), Kc Wayland (We’re Alive), Mariele Runacre Temple (Wireless Theatre Company)Jack Kincaid (Edict Zero), Jonathan Mitchell (The Truth), Fred Greenhalgh (Radio Drama Revival/The Cleansed), Eric Nuzum (Audible.com), John Dryden (Tumanbay), and Ric Viers (The Sound Effects Bible).

  1. I have to respectfully disagree with Tony on two things that he described. The three types of microphones are dynamic, condenser and ribbon. A shotgun mic is a pick up pattern. The pick up patterns of microphones are omni, cardioid, hyper cardioid and shotgun.

    An issue with using a shotgun microphone is that while it is primarily focused straight in front with good side rejection, most shotguns will also have a rear lobe with a high sensitivity to pick up sound.
    This can cause the microphone to hear sound bouncing off the ceiling or walls if the room is not extremely dead.
