It’s November so we’re going for a Fiction theme for NaNoWriMo. Zane goes back to one of the originals in podcast fiction land with Rabbits, Liz looks at an audio drama designed to create awareness of homelessness through storytelling with Baby It’s Cold Outside and Patrick gets down with his inner and outer nerd with The Glass Cannon Podcast. Then it’s on to last week’s reviews!
Liz Recommends - Baby it’s Cold Outside
Chris O’Dowd and Anne-Marie Duff star in this three act radio drama that delves into the difficulties faced by those who find themselves homeless, especially around the holidays. Liz was particularly tickled with this one because not only was it a good dramatic production, but it was created with crisis.org.uk to raise funds for the homeless. Liz thinks using theatre and drama for social good is very good indeed.
“Written by award winning screenwriter Regina Moriarty and directed by Virginia Gilbert, the show is a thought-provoking journey, finding humour in the darkness whilst hitting home the impact of homelessness in the UK.
“Baby, It's Cold Outside was developed by Duck Soup Films, in association with Crisis. It marks the launch of Fremantle's scripted podcast label, Storyglass, which will commission and develop original scripted ideas from storytellers around the world.”
For Both: listen to the whole thing from the start. It’s short.
Pat Recommends - The Glass Cannon Podcast
Fictional you say? I don't ordinarily deal in fiction when it comes to podcasts but I suppose I'll make an exception considering the circumstances. As you may well know I'm a huge fan of D&D, and this podcast is D&D adjacent. These guys are playing Pathfinder, which is D&D for nerds, it has more nitty gritty rules. They're hilarious and terribly entertaining and there's a plethora of episodes so please enjoy.
For Zane and Lizne: Start from the beginning
Zane Recommends - Rabbits
For our Fiction special Zane thought that he would recommend the frist audiodrama serial he ever listened to - Rabbits. Rabbits is a documentary/docudrama that follows one womans investigation of her friends disappearance and her possible involvement in a shadowy secret society that orchestrates a decades-long life and death game.
For Pat & Liz: From the start.
