The Social Contract of Radio Drama

| March 31, 2016

At the Sonic Society we try to demonstrate that radio drama opens up conversation in the areas of social and political concern. Many communities around the world may not have wide distribution to televisions or Internet, but they have radio. Radio can teach and delight (to borrow from Philip Sidney). Case in point, from The […]

Alien Radio

| March 30, 2016

After watching both Alien and Aliens, I was certain of one thing… all the chatter between the humans on the comm-links with the heartbeat sounding scanner would make a terrifying audio drama version if someone ever did it. Well, they did. Or rather he did. The “he” in question is none other than the Wizard of Aud- […]

Is Anyone Out There? Or is this… a Dead Line?

| March 30, 2016

When I conceived of The Dead Line Anthologies at EVP Studios, I thought the narrator was a “voyeur in a wired world”. Often times, audio drama producers ask the question “Is Anyone Listening?”.

The Rise of the Bronze Age of Audio Drama?

| March 28, 2016

Happy Easter Everyone! A time where traditionally we think of new life, and renewal, and it’s got us thinking here at EVP Studios. A few years back I said we had exited the Golden Age of Modern Audio Drama, and entered a definitively new age, the Silver Age. I said that because I had seen […]

The (Radio) Show That Happened Long Time Ago

| March 26, 2016

In a generation far, far away, Americans everywhere were treated to Star Wars the Radio Drama trilogy in 1981, 83, and 96. While my reintroduction to modern audio drama was The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy as CBC replayed the British phenom  just before the bus came in the morning, yanks were thrilling about George Lucas‘ […]
