Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

For those who may not know…

Kenneth Jarman has written a good introduction about, well, introductions to Audio Drama in the Examiner.

After six years of Audio Drama trumpeting, we sometimes wonder if there’s still a street in a city, a pasture in the farmlands, or a grove in the hinterland that doesn’t know about the amazing re-genesis of modern Audio Drama, but it’s amazing how many people:

a. Don’t know about it.

b. Think it’s just reposting Old Time Radio

or

c. Don’t think that Audio Drama would be any good to listen to as an alternative to music.

To them, I always ask. “How great would it be to watch movies in your car without having to stop looking at the road?” or “Wouldn’t cleaning the house or the dishes go a lot faster if you had a movie to watch without actually watching it?” or “How many times have you said you need to go for a walk or work out, but you just have no way to look forward to doing it?”

I know this Fall, I’ve made walking a daily (usually twice daily) practice, and I’ve listened to so much more. Sometimes I’m in the middle of a story, so I go for a longer walk just to finish it up.

Could Audio Drama actually promote healthy bodies as WELL as healthy minds?

We’ll get our scientists on that right away. In the meantime, have a read of Jarman’s piece. It’s a great primer!
