After eating my fill of audio drama podcasts while putting together my Nine Worlds rec list this summer, autumn and winter found me in more of a non-fiction mood. I picked up a handful of new (to me) queer history podcasts in the last few months (podcast backlogs having the unfortunate habit of running out, forcing the listener to find more or wait), so I thought I’d write up a list of my current favourites. You know, in case you need some help researching the queer fanfiction you’re gonna write me after last week’s post, because you love me. 😘
I don’t know if it’s my taste, or audio dramas in general, or just the hellscape that is 2018, but I keep listening to stories where the antagonist is capitalism. ars PARADOXICA is a slight (very slight) departure, though, because this time the antagonist is the government and intelligence agencies of the USA! And also, I guess, human flaws.
This podcast didn’t quite make it onto my rec list for last weekends Nine Worlds podcast panel, but I finished listening to it at work this week, and now I’m very sad I won’t get to spend any more time with these characters, so I thought I’d write up a quick rec post.
At this year’s Nine Worlds I hosted a panel about podcast recommendations for people who wanted to get into listening to audio drama podcasts, called Beyond Night Vale: The World of Audio Drama Podcasts. This is the list of all the podcasts we rec’d on that panel, with a download of the slides at the end.
