If you are browsing around for podcasts you may have found that there’s a broad spectrum of choices, not only in genre but also in format and quality. My own is an example of long fiction—an entire novel—with minimal sound effects.
Some have a whole cast of voice actors, incidental and background music, impressive intro and outro announcements, and some professional level sound effects.
Others are even more minimal than mine, with zero sound effects and just one voice that seems to be recorded in a single sitting with almost no editing.
One such is called Postapodcalypse, which is an unnamed guy in a dystopian future where he rambles on about his experiences, observations, and off-the-wall thoughts from somewhere in North America. The show is strangely fascinating, and keeps drawing me back to hear the next installment. I don’t think it’s been active for a while, but there are a good number of shows available still. Check it out at this address http://postapodcalypse.tumblr.com/.
Thanks for recommending my show!ReplyDelete
You are very welcome. In creating a podcast of my novel, I found that I have reached more people than the print version has, but I still get very little affirmation of the value of my efforts.ReplyDelete
It can be discouraging when I see lots of pageviews and downloads in my site statistics, and yet the comments are exceedingly rare.
I am glad that you produced your podcast, and I want you to know it.
