Ghost Story time of the year is upon us. This podcast discusses the evolution of Audio Drama and includes a great example. The story is very tame but still qualifies as a Ghost Story.

I think the audio drama was sort of the second wave of the podcasting revolution. With it’s roots firmly planted in old radio we already had the fireside story-time bug updated from yesteryear. Of course audio books and plays of the turn of the century helped, but the new age of listening did not fully translate into good market practice until after mobile phones married the two.

This podcast is on my permanent feed and this episode so perfectly addresses something that we really start to enjoy this time of the year; the old ‘ghost story’.
