    That was a great episode. I’m definitely interested in learning more and listening to the podcast. Good audio dramas are hard to find (probably due to the costs involved) and my favorites: Decoder Ring Theater and Thrilling Adventure Hour have pretty much discontinued (but seriously, give them a listen – the dialog in the former is really well written).

    I like audio drama more than audio books because of the extra costs and they’re in easily digestible parts. They’re modern versions of radio serials.
