Other Audio Fiction For Your Earholes!

Hey, folks! A lot of people (particularly on Twitter) seem to ask for podcast recommendations, and instead of coming up with something on the fly, I thought I’d make a list for handy referral that I could just share in those situations! So here’s what the discriminating Monkey is listening to:

Fiction With Something More

  • Greater Boston – truly in a category by itself and quite possibly my all-time favourite – deeply touching stories in a social narrative with an absolutely literary scope


  • This Planet Needs a Name – the softest, most wonderful cure to gloomy views of the future
  • The Pasithea Powder – Politics and moral ambiguity and friendship framed in a sci-fi thriller
  • Oz-9 – silly and wonderful
  • The Strange Case of Starship Iris – touching emotion and all-around kick-ass adventure
  • Civilized – Absolutely flawless (and improvised – how?) dark comedy
  • Vega, a Sci-Fi Adventure Podcast – narrative ramped-up awesomeness
  • Relativity – an immersive space-based mystery that keeps you on the edge of your seat (now complete!)
  • Lost Terminal – A little satellite carrying a little AI has lost contact with Earth. What to do then?
  • Seren – a complex, hearbreaking dystopian journey that you’ll be utterly enveloped in (and want so much to save her from)
  • It Was Never Just About The Revolution – intense and touching and just at the beginning of the journey
  • Windfall – immersive and just the right balance of adventure and personal story
  • The Pilgrimage Saga – honestly has a bit of everything! If you love sci-fi, you’ll find something to connect with in this show
  • and of course, Moonbase Theta, Out – our kinda-dystopian emotional queer sci-fi drama with tardigrades and Dairy Milk

People With Powers

  • The Beacon – the most charming exploration of powers and personal connections
  • The Path Down – Navigating the transition to adulthood isn’t any easier with powers mixed in – life is hard enough as it is!
  • Love & Luck – the most amazing queer romance – I’ll let you discover the powers part on your own
  • The Van – kids with powers in an awfully dramatic situation
  • With Caulk and Candles – this kinda slides between genres, but there’s some potential power going on here, and you should listen!

Fantasy (both traditional and contemporary / urban, mostly comic)


  • Nightlight – Black horror read and produced by Black talent
  • Punishment Island – immersive dark paranormal stories set in Kampala, Uganda
  • Hi Nay – Supernatural / horror fiction in Toronto with a Filipino twist
  • SCP Archives – kind of a creepypasta anthology thingy – it’s creepy in the best of ways
  • Archive 81 – found footage audio horror
  • Station Blue – atmospheric isolation horror
  • Supernatural Sexuality with Dr. Seabrooke – okay, not really horror at all, but really touching and honest love and sex talk – with monsters

One of a Kind

  • The Far Meridian – parallel worlds with amazing characters and a gentle exploration
  • Caravan – weird and wonderful paranormal western with strong queer elements
