The boom in podcasts shows no signs of abating. That commute or run on the treadmill seems a lot more appealing when you’ve just dropped five new episodes of an addictive thriller or crime mystery – some of us are even getting fit off the back of it. Recent favourites are; Homecoming – a psychological thriller from Gimlet Media, made on the streets of New York with Catherine Keener, Oscar Issac and David Schwimmer as you’ve never heard him before. And Panoply’s science fiction thriller LifeAfter, which had us parked in a lay-by way longer than planned.
Given all of this, getting involved with our own ideas seemed like a no brainer!
We’ve had a great year working with writer Julian Simpson on two H.P Lovecraft-inspired investigative podcasts. ‘The Case of Charles Dexter Ward‘ (released in December 2018) received fantastic reviews from audiences, and following our Silver Award win at the British Podcast Awards 2019, BBC Radio 4 commissioned series two; ‘The Whisperer In Darkness’ – coming to BBC Sounds in December 2019!
