I’m almost done with the final draft of the script for my first audio drama production, but it’ll still be a few weeks before I post audition information. In the meantime, I thought I’d recommend some other audio dramas.
First, I want to recommend Edict Zero, a science fiction audio drama that takes place on a far off planet, several centuries into the future. It’s actually a police procedural with science fiction elements thrown in. So far, I’ve only listened to season one, but the word I often hear used to describe later seasons is “epic.” If the quality of season one is any indication of the quality of later seasons, I expect good things.
Another audio drama that I have just recently discovered is called Homecoming. It’s a psychological drama about the treatment of war veterans for PTSD by the Homecoming Initiative, which is led by an organization that is not all it seems. The story is truly unconventional. The cast includes a number of Hollywood actors and actresses, and it shows. The acting is superb. While I wasn’t impressed by the first few minutes of the series, it got better fast. So far, there is only one season out but I am pleased to say that there is another on the way.
If you haven’t heard these audio dramas, I strongly recommend that you give them a try. They are great examples of what one can do with the medium, and making audio dramas of equal quality is something to aspire to.
