♥ it’s time to spread your podcast pallet ♥

2017 couldn’t come fast enough, huh? While 2016 was certainly a time askew with scandals, depressing news headlines, and maybe a few uncomfortable encounters with people wearing ugly red hats-it was still another year we survived through pure preservation and artistic freedom. If there’s one thing we certainly won’t be losing anytime soon it’s the joys of audio drama and hope for a better tomorrow. 

Keep your head up, dust yourself off, and shovel that snow from your driveway while the welcoming sounds of the best and brightest audio dramas keep you warm through the winter. Today is the day to take the long way home, check into a hotel, and ignore the chime of incoming phone calls.

Looking for something fresh to please that sudden thirst for audio storytelling? Look no further as PodCake has six more podcasts you’ll certainly love.

1. The Bridge

It’s an alternate 2016, and Watchtower 10 sits in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, keeping lonely watch over the Transcontinental Bridge. Each watchtower sits hundreds of feet away from the Bridge, broadcasting regular traffic reports to ensure that proper safety precautions are taken. 

If you’ve got a taste for mystery and sea monsters, The Bridge is granted to be the audio drama to make your 2017 a little more interesting. Follow the broadcasts of Miss Henrietta and her crew of highly capable Watchtower 10 personnel as they keep a close eye on a massive transcontinental bridge and their own personal demons. 

Something’s amiss and it may be up to them uncover what secrets may lie beneath them in this supposed aquatic paradise. With beautiful music, a lovable cast of characters, and an excellent combination of comedy and peril, The Bridge is sure to be an excellent expedition for you. So stay tuned and stay out of the water.

2. Subject: Found

Jared Strong is chasing a monster that has haunted him since his childhood. Will he find it? What happens if he does? We have an extensive, private library of some of the darkest and most shocking pursuits of monsters that have haunted humankind throughout our history. Stories about legend, lore, the paranormal and all things dark and mysterious. These are our stories. 

Here be monsters and Subject: Found is all over it. If you swear on your life you’ve seen a Sasquatch and have a taste for conspiracy theories, perhaps this podcast will scratch that paranormal itch that’s been bugging you.

Bustling with lore and suspense on the most classic of creatures, fans of supernatural horror will feel right at home. There’s nothing wrong with making your year a little weird with this pick and if you have any sightings you’d like to report, be sure to listen to Subject: Found.

3. Manor House: The Podcast

Certainly not for the faint of heart, though most definitely a great choice for horror fanatics who can’t get enough haunting bedtime stories to ease them into a nervous slumber. Manor House may have the perfect room for you…as long as you don’t mind the blood.

4. Terms

On election night, two-term president Oliver Pierce watches in disbelief from the White House as Charles Dunwalke wins a controversial electoral college victory. With only 73 days before Dunwalke’s inauguration, president Pierce makes a secret decision to act, with historic and possibly catastrophic consequences.

Who says all political drama has to be nonfiction? In this presidential drama of ethics and integrity, let’s see what happens when our leaders of of the US start to play by their own rules. Spoke Media will appeal to your most deep seated fantasies of rebellion that will keep you coming back for more.

5. Mabel

Mabel is a fiction podcast about ghosts, family secrets, strange houses, and missed connections.

Mysterious, melancholy, and oh so addictive, Mabel is the brainchild of Becca De La Rosa, a new and hopefully returning face to the podcast scene. Mabel functions on that of a classical horror story, leaving you guessing and shivering for answers that cause us to puzzle the well-being of our lead Mabel Martin. 

With practically poetic storytelling and a simple but poignant presentation, Mabel is perfect for those eerily silent afternoons that just may not be eerie enough for you. So check that voicemail and check Mabel out for yourself. 

6. Rover Red

Rover Red is a listener-guided post-apocalyptic epic that follows Leah, a girl who has lived her entire life thinking and being taught that the compound she’s been raised within holds the last of humankind. When her brother, Jonah, is kidnapped, she leaves the compound to search for him. While she’s out searching, the compound is destroyed, leaving Leah alone to travel across a dystopian wasteland in search of her brother. She soon realizes that those inside her compound were not the last humans on earth…

We can never have too many sci-fi apocalypse podcasts and Rover Red is the newest and brightest contender. Fans of SAYER may enjoy this A.I. guided role play audio drama where you play a part in the survival of our protagonist, Leah.

For podcast fans looking for a bit of innovation and experimentation in this wide and creative spectrum of storytelling, Rover Red has you covered and may drill itself into your skull just to make sure. What will you choose? 

now, get to listening.
