By Colin J. Kelly
Over the past five years, I have been obsessively spending hours researching Audio Fiction Productions, driven by a single question. I'm fortunate to have constructed for myself a vantage point of audio fiction by working with the Audio Verse Awards Team. I'm not caught up on anyone, but I love spending time with many of the fantastic stories and storytellers who have guided my journey since I first won an iPod Video in a school raffle fifteen years ago.
I remember the first audio dramatization I found on the iTunes store. A dramatization of a prequel comic for the 2006 video game: Justice League Heroes for the Xbox and PS2. I found online mailing lists and forums and eventually that new thing Facebook had groups.I remember when the most popular fiction podcasts were groups of volunteers spinning stories "for the art". As a teenager in the midwest, I found an escape from my life in the books I read and the podcasts I listened to.
Thank You for Reading!
We'll see you next month!
