The Sonic Society

Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

The Reviews are In!

Recently there’s been a lot of hay made about the  hashtag weekly on Twitter. We think it’s a fantastic way to get the word out for those who haven’t yet got on the Audio Drama Trolley (we’ve got multiple cars give us a try!) But for those of us who already listen to audio drama the rest of the week, how can we help out?

Perhaps you can make Sunday your review day. Most shows RSS Feeds can be found through i-tunes and lately we at the Sonic Society have made Sundays our day to attempt to systematically write i-tune reviews for all our favourite shows. Because that would take an inordinate amount of time, we’re keeping our list to three shows a week. How about you?

Try the three reviews a week Sunday challenge! 

Honestly, it’s not easy to go write reviews in the first place, but here’s a couple of methods:

Lastly, if you’re a producer, you can sign up and check your reviews from all around the world monthly with a free account at MyPodcastReviews.com

So what are you waiting for? Go out there and get more folks on i-tunes checking out how hot radio drama is….

And hey, what better way to start than writing one for the Sonic Society? You hit EVERYONE then! Happy Reviewing!

  1. Hey Jack,
    I could use some advice. What is the best way to get reviews for our fledgling Audio Drama podcast?
    We have three episodes up, and in production for more. We’ve been selected for the Hear Now now Audio Fiction and Fantasy Festival. And we’re looking to get the word out, and good reviews would be a ideal tool for that.
    I would certainly appreciate any insight you might have on the subject.

    Hey Michael,
    Thanks for the question. Unfortunately, there’s really no simple answer.
    Usually, it’s all of the above.
    Make sure you’re listed in Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Google Music, Spotify, Stitcher, iheartradio and that you post in places like Audio Drama/Radio Drama Lovers asking people for reviews.
    I know that there’s been a couple of new review podcasts that are up. I hesitate to recommend any in particular because a lot of them focus on what the podcast hosts like rather what makes good audio drama.
    That being said, we’re ALWAYS thrilled to play shows on the Sonic Society that are audio drama (We try not to post too much audio fiction as our listeners prefer full AD). And of course, we’re happy to always include new shows in the Mutual Audio Network as Legacy members.
    It’s never an easy road- that of getting the word out- but if you’re continually diligent, and always making stuff you love, I believe you get there…
    And what’s most important you have fun and learn along the way.
    CHEERS! And let us know if we can showcase any of your work!
