I currently subscribe to Escape Pod, Drabble Cast, ClonePod and Podcastle.  Does anyone have any recommendations for awesome SFF podcasts?  I just finished "Playing for Keeps" and LOVED it. 

I have downloaded Heaven (seasons 1-4), Brave Men Run, 7th Son Book 1 Descent and The Secret World Chronicle, but haven't started those yet.  Any other suggestions?  I have a 15 hour drive (one way) to visit family over the holidays and am looking for more recommendations.  Also, does anyone know if the Mighty Murr will be releasing anything else in the PFK universe?

iTunes has most of Sigler's back catalogue, including almost all of Infected. I've also been enjoying the World War Z podcast, although that's more horror than SFF.

well it certainly seems judging by the end of PFK that at least one sequel is intended, so I imagine so.

some of my favorite podcast fiction, which can be found on podiobooks.com, includes everything by Nathan Lowell (the golden clipper series starts with 'quarter share,' a good place to start), The Prophet of Panamindorah series by Abigail Hilton, and How to Disappear Completely by Myke Bartlett (this is not to everyone's tastes, and its quite lengthy, but I thought it was just fabulous).  Also consider checking out decoder ring theatre, old style radio drama, quite fun.

I'll be the first to point out that How To Disappear Completely is the name of the mind-blowing fourth track on Radiohead's (best?) album, Kid A.

That will be all.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Mur's planning on doing more in that universe in the future, although I'm not sure how much has been written yet.  But I know she is planning a sequel.  If you dig PFK, though, you could check out the Stories of the Third Wave which has PFK stories by people like Scott Sigler, Matt Wallace, JC Hutchins, and other folks.

Well, I'm back from my 15 hour each way trip to North Dakota...and this is my update:

A)  I still love Drabblecase, oh man, that Norm is a funny (and weird) dude...and I think his dad has a mancrush on me...but whatever
B)  I listened to the entire Brave Men Run, and about 1/2 of Secret World Chronicles and really liked them both.  PFK is still my FAVORITE Super Hero Podcast so far, but I have really enjoyed all three.
C)  The following are on my most hated list: 
             1)  Voices of Tomorrow 365 stories...I actually really liked the stories, but they were too short for me to listen too...it was tough to try to figure out a new story theme every 5 minutes.  And with a backlog of 80-100 of these, it required way too much concentration at 3:00 am while driving through Sioux Falls.
             2)  The Great Beyond Podcast.  The audio quality was kinda bad, and I couldn't understand the dude very well...I had to crank my speakers to understand him...I did keep a couple of these just in case his recording quality gets better.
D)  I haven't tried Well Told Tales yet, but am excited to work through their backlog. 

Anyway, thanks for the recommendations!

You must have listened to the Super Animal Deathmatch Podcast :-)  Not my type of thing, but Drabblecast is awesome.  I thought Brave Men RUn was OK, but was hyped so much I was a little disappointed.  Have you heard DKT's podcast novel advertised round these parts?

aw i loved Brave Men Run

lets see... others...
Heaven novels by Mur Lafferty (ooh wait you have those)
The Seanachai - this is not necessarily SF, and episodes are few and far between these days (tho he says hes turning a new leaf) but he has some great essays and mini stories.  you might really like his offshoot of it, How to Succeed in Evil.  Its a superhero kind of thing, not yet finished, wont be for a while either Tongue

Red vs. Blue - youtube/google videos/roosterteeth.com
great stuff

7th Son

Ancestor - Scott Sigler

Voices: New Media Fiction - another Mur thing, tis an anthology, great stories here, can find it on podiobooks

The Pocket and the Pendant - almost Young Adult, which i usually dont like, but it's done well and i found it very entertaining.

and of course DKT's The Incredible Origin of Superspiff and the Toothpick Kid

Ditto for Nathan Lowell's "Share" series.

I'm on episode three of How to Succeed in Evil - Vol I.
Quote
How to Succeed in Evil is the story of Edwin Windsor, evil efficiency consultant. (Kind of like Arthur Anderson for Lex Luthor.) As far as possible, he practices an honest trade, but his clients are so egomaniacal that they don't listen to his advice.

Frustrated, Edwin decides to go into the evil business for himself. Alternately dark and funny, this is a satire on corporate culture as well as the traditional comic book villain.

Tee Morris' Billibub Baddings and the Case of the Singing Sword was enjoyable enough, but I got really annoyed at the high percentage of personal (and dated) blog-type content, listener feedback, and other non-story items. Don't just automatically download every episode, which continue after the story itself is concluded. He really should have re-packaged it for Podiobooks.

I'm finding Variant Frequencies to be the most consistently good story podcast.  clonepod and the three EA podcasts are uneven ... some really great stuff, and some absolute crap.  I can't think of any on VF that I've actively hated.

I totally disagree.  I stopped listening to Variant Frequencies awhile ago because the only thing consistent was that they were all pretty much the same types of dark horror/suspense stories.  Some were good, some were bad, but the frequency never varied and I got bored.  Maybe it's changed, I dunno.

Yeah, I'm rabidly anticipating the next Lowell podcast novel. Smiley

As for Billibub Baddings, I hate to say it, but I could barely finish listening to the first chapter and abandoned it forthwith. I just couldn't stand it at all. I feel a little guilty naysaying an author fairly well established in the podcasting community, but for whatever reason, I just found it unlistenable.

Cultron mentioned that he listens to our podcast, but I thought suggesting our podcast might still be a good idea.  We are a podcast that puts out mainstream PG 13 (although we really push the envelop on the PG13 thing) SFandF.  More SF than F.  My children introduce the stories, but it is by no means a podcast for children.  The beauty of having young people introduce the stories is that it is all new to them.  You get to hear the wonder in their voices as they discover authors we all know and love, but are new to them.  We have run stoires by  Robert Reed, Neil Gaiman, Walter Jon Williams and Mike Resnick - we also run stories by aspiring authors - so if you are looking for a venue for your story, consider submitting to our podcast.

My opinion of your children as podcast hosts is already on record.  But I like the stories you run.

Well, I'm taking another trip to N.D. to visit the inlaws this week and am getting my 3 A.M. playlist ready.  This is what I have so far.

I have already downloaded and ready to go in the IPOD:
1)  Ancestor by the "Sigmeister"
2)  Morevi by Tee Morris
3)  Billibub baddings by Tee Morris  (Thanks Planish)
4)  The rest of Sigler's stuff (Earthcore, Nocturnal, The Rookie, Infected and Contagious)


I plan to download
1)  The Pocket and the Pendant
2)  How to Succeed in Evil. - But I'm waiting until the author is done.   (Bdoomed)
3)  'quarter share' By Nathan Lowell  (thank you Talia)

Since the last trip I made, I have finished the following:
Nina Kimberly the Merciless                - Pretty good.  That Christiana Ellis is a pretty funny lady(tron).
Space Casey                                   - I liked this one, but thought it was too short.
Voices:  New Media Fiction                 - on Bdoomed's recommendation and it was a great short story SF/F anthology
All 3 7th Son Books                           - Book 1 was pretty slow, but they really picked up, and by book 3, it had me driving around the block to finish chapters.
The Lafferty Heaven books                - Is there a conclusion in the works here?  Anyone know?

So I have finished Earthcore and Ancestor by Scott Sigler...Anyone notice any similarities?  They seem to both use pretty much the same formula...

1)  Nasty Monsters
2)  Extremely tough environmental conditions in remote locations
3)  The crazy super tough person who wants to kill the heroes
4)  Companies betting the farm for huge profits
5)  mad genius scientists
6)  The tough soldier dude (who falls in love with the tough soldier lady)
7)  The grizzled old guy who knows the land "like the back of his hand".

These are the only two Sigler books I have listened to, and don't get me wrong, they were both pretty good, but they were pretty much the same book...one set under a mountain and the other on an island.

I've only listened to Ancestor and it seemed more than a little similar to Jurassic Park.  The motive for recreating extinct life forms was different, but otherwise ....

I don't wanna be a rude new forum member, but as a newbie to podcast audio stuff who only has the basics like the big EP 3 and Drabblecast, along with a few other peripheries that I'm still giving second/third chances to like clonepod, the Sigler stuff has been entirely overrated, IMO.  I listened to all of Earthcore and Ancestor.  It's ok, but it only got into my ears because this audio stuff is fresh territory.  Give more standard, talented (but granted, less visionary)pro-writers some time to put stuff out there (which they eventually will cuz it's a dying market) and novels like these will pale in comparison.  Not saying I didn't wring some enjoyment from them, just saying that competition is pretty sparse.  Tried a JC Hutchins and couldn't get past first 2 or 3.  Will start Infection soon with expectations of more of the same drill.

So I'm now listening to Nocturnal...I'm about 1/2 way through and am liking it...The Cop angle is different for the Sigmeister so that is neat...Plus, it doesn't seem to fit the mold that earthcore and ancestor fall into.  So it's nice to hear something different from him.

It seems the feed at heavennovel.com would have me re-download the four parts I've already got (am I wrong?)  I'll just use the podiobook feed.  But thanks for the heads-up anyway.

I decided to ressurect this thread because it's always a good place to come for other podcast suggestions.  Here's some recent recommendations from another thread:

Sad to say, I have gone through the backlog already including reviews and meta casts. The only thing keeping me sane are the episodes of the Drabble cast and the new episodes of Pseudopod. Where are some other good podcasts of funny or unique scifi & horror? I already went through all the well told tales, and fear on demand. Not to mention you should be writing and classic tales so where do i go now? Any suggestions?

You should check out StarShipSofa. Its different.. its not purely fiction, they run fact articles and reviews too.. but its really really engaging, even the nonfiction segments they run are interesting. Plus the fiction stories they run there are by people like Paolo Bacigalupi, Tad Williams, Tanith Lee, Gene Wolfe, Bruce Sterling.. and that was just from a quick look at their webpage.

I'll add some more to the list:

Tor.com has two podcasts: Audio Fiction, hosted by Mur Lafferty, and The Geek's Guide to the Galaxy, hosted by John Joseph Adams & David Barr Kirtley.  I especially like Geek's Guide.  It is a lot of fun.

The fans of the Drabblecast have recently spun off their own podcast called The Dribblecast.  Basically, it is members of the Drabblecast forums reading stories that were written by Drabblecast fans and posted on the forums.  There are some good fun stories up their.  It is also remarkably easy to join in and try your hand at podcasting.  I have produced a couple entries myself.  I read one of Scattercat's stories, and the other one I just sent in last night so it hasn't been posted yet.  Learn about becoming part of this here.

Actually, I should back up, the whole idea for a fan run podcast started when Steven Lidster asked Drabblecast forumites to read for a new podcast of his stories: Clowns and Bunnies and Other Scary Things.  He has the first episode up featuring readings by Abigail Hilton, Liz Mierzejewski, and Norm Sherman.  Check it out.

I really like Tor's Geek's Guide to the Galaxy, except for the guy giggling.  Guys should not giggle.  It's a really cool podcast otherwise.

Is Mur's Tor.com podcast still releasing stories?  I haven't seen one in quite a while...I've been listening to tor.com/category/tordotstories...

Unfortunately, no.

Mur talked a little about it in this thread.

Yes, I thought Geek's Guide to the Galaxy with John Joseph Adams and David Barr Kirtley was going to die too, but this recent tweet makes me happy.

Attention Geek's Guide fans! We'll be ending our regrettable hiatus and relaunching the show soon. Stay tuned for details!

Two podcasts that are definitely worth checking out are Beneath Ceaseless Skies and Clarkesworld!

I've been very, very impressed by the Lightspeed podcast (what I've heard).

A friendly suggestion from Podiobooks - try the Shadowmagic books. The first one is now out in print as well and the second one is still being released.

I found Seigler and JC Hutchins a bit too breathless in their delivery for late night listening, but I enjoyed them for car trips.

The Levantian Chronicles are also pretty good, but unfortunately since they are more of a audio series rather than novel, they kind of leave you hanging at the end of the first season (not quite a who-shot-JR moment, but many threads are left hanging for next season).

Daughters of the Sun (also on Podiobooks) is worth a listen, but it is also in strongly in need of a sequel.

Chasing the Bard by Phillipa Ballantyne is really worth a listen. I enjoyed both her writing and her narration.

I really liked the Crown Conspiracy - recently released with Nathan Lowell as narrator. This is part of a larger series and the next book is to be released later this year (according to something I read somewhere....)

Can someone recommend a good science fiction news podcast?
I have been listening the Slice of Scifi, but the amount of fake laughter in that podcast is REALLY, REALLY getting on my nerves.

I like Sci Fi Dig, which is almost more of an opinion show, but Aaron Macom is an engaging host. I also just started listening to Completely Comics, which is obviously more comics oriented but they do touch on current TV and some film stuff. Both are laugh-track free, Sci Fi Dig has trivia questions and lists new DVD releases, Completely Comics was tied to The Cape for a few episodes. They both tend to run long, Sci Fi Dig is often 1-2 hours long, and Completely Comics hits the hour mark every now and then too.

Aside from some random mentions, I haven't seen much pimping here for the H. P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast. I'd have to say it's pretty darn good. Largely, this is a discussion of Lovecraft's work peppered with readings of relevant passages. They also raise money to cover their costs through holding ransoms for well produced readings of Lovecraft's stories. This past month they just released a reading of Call of Cthulhu. There are the occasional intellectual stoner-buddy sidetrack discussions, but it's all done with a distinct love of the material. If you're interested in Lovecraft or the mythos that he helped create, this is worth your time to check out. There's several years worth of catalog, which is helping to fill the void as I have finished all of PseudoPod's catalog.

The Kurt Vonneguys podcast is excellent. Alex Smith and Michael Swaim from www.cracked.com and lifelong Vonnegut enthusiasts exhaustively discuss his books in publication order. Fan-tastic stuff.
