THEATER OF THE IMAGINATION
This is my series on Dramatic Audio Media, such as Old Time Radio ("The Shadow", "Gunsmoke", etc.), BBC Radio, and other classics -- but also, and most especially, the current renaissance of this art form, and how a person (like me, like you) can begin producing your own audio fiction or poetry or whatever for the enjoyment of countless others. This will be a learning process for me, and my mistakes might very well help you avoid any similar such in your own endeavors.
In Part 07, lostnbronx talks about his Tascam DR-40 solid state recording device, covers an OTR show of particular note, along with a new show that's also extremely cool, and then makes a plea for you to support your favorite artists.

THEATER OF THE IMAGINATION
Dramatic Audio Media, And Its Context
Shownotes -- In No Particular Order (Yay!)
First off, there's the Wikipedia page for audiobooks (strangely, they don't seem to have one specifically for podiobooks -- at least, when I looked. Someone should fix that. But not me. I'm too busy. Or something.)
The Internet Archive's Old Time Radio "Gunsmoke" collection
Darker Projects (lots of fun going on here)
Decoder Ring Theatre (The Red Panda is da man -- and his female sidekick is too...rowaar!)
BrokenSea Audio Productions (lookin' good)
For live stage productions, check this guy out -- I haven't seen him, myself, but he's got right idea!
Again, not anyone I've seen, but they sure have the fire!
