The Sonic Society

Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Oral Tales and Audio Drama

Forbes knew it was coming two years ago.

In an article written by Chris Giliberti, from Gimlet Media entitled 6 Reasons Why Podcasting is the Future of Storytelling, Giliberti identifies why podcasting- and oral storytelling (we would argue audio drama) is key and king.

In a nutshell the business-side is starting to catch up with the creative folks:

  • Investment
  • Content
  • Talent
  • Distribution
  • Connected
  • VR

The truth is we’re genetically predisposed towards stories- good stories. As a native tradition suggests: Human beings have four great appetites. The first is food and a human can go weeks without eating. The second is water and a human can go days without drinking. The third is air and a human can go minutes without breathing, and the last is imagination and if a human’s imagination disappears for a moment they seek to exist and all things around them.

Story is simply the building block of life. Nothing exists without it. And the best way through is listening to stories. Listen to a story today!
