Are you a writer or storyteller? Creating an audio drama or fiction podcast might be a great way to build your audience. You might even get discovered by a major publisher or Hollywood.
Audio drama podcasts aren’t like audio books: they usually have a full cast and sound design to make the experience immersive. They’re also often not like old-timey radio plays: they’re often a bit more elegant, a bit more serious, and much less hammy (unless being hammy is the podcast’s goal).

Audio drama podcasts don't have to be fiction - there are lots of popular scripted true-crime shows, for example.
Last January 19 and 20, PodCon 2 (a podcasting conference held in Seattle) brought together audio drama podcasters and hundreds of their rabid fans from all over the world.
Think about that - audio drama fans traveled to Seattle to meet the audio drama creators and actors from their favorite shows. I was there. These shows are important to the fans.
At the March Meetup, we'll take a look at all kinds of scripted podcasts, how they are put together, and why they're so popular.
See you there!
