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.
