New SciFi and Horror Podcasts

Here’s a lit­tle ear can­dy for the fan of adven­ture­some lit­er­a­ture. Over the past week, Escape­pod (iTunesFeedWeb Site) released anoth­er one of its pop­u­lar short sto­ries, “Start The Clock.” You’ll also find in the feed (and pre­sum­ably soon on iTunes) an audio ver­sion of Isaac Asi­mov’s “Night­fall,” which was pub­lished first in 1941, in Astound­ing Sci­ence Fic­tion. Great com­bo here of new and old.

Next, Pseudo­pod (iTunesFeedWeb Site), the world’s first audio hor­ror mag­a­zine, has issued two new sto­ries in recent weeks: Stephanie Bur­gis’ “Stitch­ing Time” and Dave Thompson’s “Last Respects.” We think you’ll like them. (Thanks to Boing­Bo­ing for the heads up on these.)

Final­ly, we want­ed to high­light Stranger Things, (iTunesFeedWeb Site). This series fea­tures sto­ries of ordi­nary peo­ple stum­bling into strange worlds (a la The Twi­light Zone). This is not just your every­day pod­cast. The sto­ries are cre­ative, and they’re told/acted out in very high qual­i­ty video. This puts it on the cut­ting-edge of what’s being done with pod­cast­ing. Def­i­nite­ly have a look.
