"Pillsbury, this is a post show episode in which a special guest and I will chat about last week's episode in which I spoke with James Kim the creator of the fiction podcast moon face. I recommend listening to that episode. If you can before you listen to this. This one. It should be right behind this one in your podcast listening APP now. It's time for me to introduce the personal. Be Speaking with today I. Am so thrilled to have with me Elena. Fernandez Collins, and my guess is that many of my listeners may already know who you are, but please introduce yourself and explain what you're working on these days. Hey. It's really wonderful to be here. Yeah, I am a podcast critic and a journalist. I write for places like the Bello. Collective podcasts movement, and the AV club and I specialize in fiction podcasts, so I write a newsletter called audio dramatic. That's all about fiction podcasts, and that's kind of my big wheel house. I actually have a question for you about that. The reason why I wanted to have you on the show is we've met in person. We met at podcasts movement actually, and that was a thrill for me because I've seen I've gotten to know you on twitter and social media and the Bello collective slack but I'd never had a chance to actually get to know you. And obviously your interest in fiction made perfect sense for this episode, but I wanted to know. Have you always been interested in fiction, or did you have a phase where you're listening to nonfiction? How did you get into this space yourself? I started in fiction podcasts I, actually spent a long time, not listening to any nonfiction podcasts because they weren't my jam I'm the opposite of a lot of people that I have met in the industry. Yeah, I! Get the feeling from a lot of people that I talked to. And myself included in this that nonfiction has been the gateway for so many of us and that moving into fiction. For some reason you know there's hesitation around that, and in fact, I think that you wrote a piece that was sort of like how to entice people who aren't interested in fiction. to expose themselves to the genre isn't is that right and we did that? Come from the conversations you had with other people, and they would say i. just don't know where to start or I'm not really interested. Where did that come from? That's exactly where it came from. It came from. You. Know me telling people that I. Want to start talking about fiction podcasts online, which is kind of how this got started totally by accident, I had a lot of people who I wanted to talk about podcast with, but we were in like completely different universes of podcasting like I would try their stuff and getting them to try. My stuff was also really complicated, but both of it was just couldn't find like how to Rub along together and like figure out which. which topics we were really interested in or which styles we really interested in. and so I I learned a lot about how to link nonfiction and fiction together in the past few years so. Thank you for humoring me by answering a few of my questions I know I'm here to answer some of yours so. We. Shift gears now take it away. So I. You told Paul Condo. In the previous polls show that the choices that you make in who to interview, come down to a combination of your personal fascination or history and podcasting that you think your audience can learn from. So what made you want to interview James Like what specifically about James, audio and creative history like? Put Him on your list. Yeah. That's a great question. So in his case, it was definitely the fascination with what he had created. I will confess that I am someone who has. Listened primarily to nonfiction and I think one of the reasons is that. I've never been a science fiction fan and I've never been a fantasy fan in books that I read in television that I watch with the exception of Lord of the rings which I am obsessed by so I can go there right and I love Star Wars. So for the most part I've listened nonfiction and I. Think what really grabbed me about. What James was doing was that this looked like something that could be. That was realist that was based on his life that didn't have. You know spaceships. Are you know going on a you know some kind of fantastical journey and looked like I mean it's sort of how he describes it in our discussion, like look like the slice of life story, and then after that grabbed me and really what I saw was the video trailer that he had made, and I was intrigued by that because I hadn't seen many video trailers that looked like movie trailers for podcasts before, and then I did some due diligence, did some research and realized will one of the reasons why this is? Realist is because it is actually based on his experiences and. And, so I had been looking for something to dig into. That was fiction I want to explore a fiction and this felt like how this feels like. It's something that I think I would that would resonate with me, not because I'm obviously I can't walk in his shoes. I am not Korean and I'm I'm not worried about coming out to my mom, but I felt that there was something human that I could relate to about what the story that he was telling and I was right. I will admit that when I listened to the first episode and he talks about this in the show. Live sex and I was you know a little lake water? Oh, like this is different than other things I've heard and but I realized that he wanted us to be in that space. Where maybe it is a little uncomfortable. Maybe you're. Really seeing an intimate side of this person that you're not used to seeing in podcast or in a lot of media I sort of thought. Wow, this is this is brave and then. I think it's. It's inherently relevant to the story. He's telling us well, but that's something that I realized as I continued to listen. Since you're already talking about listening to moon face, one of the things that I wanted to talk with you about was your experience listening to moon face. Like where did you listen to it? What were you feeling and thinking throughout? That is such a great question. I. I've never had. Someone asked me a question like that. So I remember listening to the first episode and. I was in a car with relatives. On you, going somewhere and I cannot remember where we were going, but I I was with in laws and. I remember thinking fails to this. They're going to laugh. I remember thinking. Because of the very audible, you know sensuousness of that first episode. I remember thinking. Almost like Oh like am i. sure no one can hear what I'm listening to right now and having instinct like turn it down, but you know I i. of course I am a rational person and realized that they could not here, and then after that it's a little blurry because I. Actually listened to it a few times, which is common for me when I'm going to interview someone so I. Think I listened to it in all different spaces after that like you know in my house driving somewhere like grocery shopping although I've realized that's not really a good match for podcast listening, but that first episode does stand out in my mind. That's that's a funny question. I I like the. So you you spoke to James about his experiences, making fiction also nonfiction work great because James created the his. Independently in house who worked on the competition? Yes, and you previously interviewed Ian Shellac. About.

"The show. And don't forget forget you can catch the news roundup at the end of every week. I listen to Bullseye because Jesse always has really good questions. What did John Malkovich pitch wear when he was twenty two? I don't know how to describe it Bullseye interviews with creators you love and creators you need to know for maximum fund dot org and NPR. This is one A.. I'm Kimberly Adams in four Joshua Johnson we're talking about the past present isn't and future of audio fiction with creators. James Kim and Lee set Alvarez Critic Elena Fernandez Collins and David Rhinestone of the radio Jio drama revival podcast and Lisa. Let's start back with you but I I wanNA play a clip from one of our listeners. Tatyana on a in Richmond. Virginia my kid and I we have been listening to a fictional. podcast called six minutes on the way to their afternoon activities as we're driving and it's been been an amazing experience especially because his generation is so focused on image and I love to see my kids discussing how to How do they think the characters look or oh? This voice belongs to that character and more like an more than that trying to predict what's going to happen. It's been an amazing bonding mom and for an. Im just loving it. Lease it any recommendations for kids podcasts. I do actually As someone who loves loves especially Fantasy and fables I love mythology Fly Stables by your very own Morgan Gibbons I would absolutely recommend a Nazi storytime time is also a pretty it's kind of like that anthem. Logical storytelling type Format by Scooter Man I also want to recommend I really love it was a short. It's a it was a short limited series called the two princes By that was Created by Gimblett and all three of those are really good. Ah Yes solid childlike child-friendly stories L. E.. I would recommend the annex explainable disappearance of Mars Patel. David you have one one. Yeah I would describe unexplainable disappearance of Mars Patel as stranger things for the NICKELODEON setting. It's sort of like a mid grade. It's like adventure. Light suspense drama. I would also add Mayan Crystal to that another great one for I. I keep thinking of this in terms of book ages but that's another great adventure story For mid grade readers about a girl and her fight against some really deeply unethical loggers in believes so. We've talked about now. Kids podcast cats fantasy. podcast Lot's of talk about the quirkiness of the Night Vale. I'm Elliot. What about the sort of the business side of things as this Jon Rao expands expands. How are these podcast doing well? That's a complicated question. Give me a complicated answer. Yeah All right so when we look at fiction podcasting Murray looking at specifically independent because almost all of the titles that we've said here so far all independent shows They are mostly being funded by Patriot. this Fundraising platform that focuses on. indie artists In the creators gators And the answer is that they are doing okay. they like hum it vastly depends rate On sort of the metric that you want to compare them to rate so if you want to compare them to the metric of certain non fiction shows Like like my favorite murder rate and that style of of true crime. They're not doing as well. And that's partially because of love the lack of media coverage and with the lack of The real from from when they weren't on lists and and from when They were kind of just being ignored. that means that it was much harder to build up marketing and build up kind of a force to be able to get people to come and donate money now. Our starting to see these This Mike I was mentioning earlier. This big money like Like q code like marvel right so marvel has just hired a bunch of indie creators offers to create their next podcast. They hired Lordship in from the Bright Sessions Michel Stanton also from the bright sessions and our spirit oxygen the whisper forage And Paul Bay From from the big loop to create marvels and James. I imagine there's also sort of a finite audience. We've we've talked about sort of independent funding. There's some big pot PODCAST producers Like Gimblett and the sort that are putting money into this. Of course. I guess there's the fantasy that you're going to get like optioned by Amazon or Hulu or something to turn your podcast Into a a movie or a serial Serialized Show James. What is your sense of the landscape? Yeah I mean I think I've been seeing a lot of shows and independent shows And Craters who've you've talked to me specifically about them getting option for books or you know Television shows or or film deals like Lauren ship and just released Her her book off the Bright Sessions And and you know you have Paul Bay who is also doing You know two different shows like two of his different podcast Are being option for two different. Television shows So there's a lot of people who are Ping attention to the space and specifically in Hollywood and I think you know one thing that makes audio fiction so appealing For you know for independent creators is also something that's appealing for For Hollywood itself is that its original ideas that you're you're being able to create whatever original. Da You can do And and people in Hollywood are looking to podcasting and saying well. We're constantly looking for originally to make things So I been green with everything that everyone saying that like is very challenging to make audio fiction show is you know because if you WanNa make something very immersive You have to pay you know all these actors moon phases had about thirty actors in the show show and you know we paid sound. Designers paid a composer and the cost goes up and up and up. And you know with that. It's it's something in which it's it's difficult for a lot of people to step into the space and and Really make their dream project at the same time You know with with people paying more and more attention. I'm hoping that this barrier gets lower and lower and that you know I want more people. Bigger people are bigger companies to be in the space to to kind of fund these projects and for me. It's looking like a lot of big companies and and bigger industries are coming in and stepping into the fiction. Space Jeff tweeted. How do you balance Allen's narration and dialogue in audio fiction also? Is there a space for literary fiction. Yes so this is a really early great This really great point about framing devices so a framing device is usually when you think about it in terms of audio fiction. You'll see actually a lot of independent fiction. PODCAST including my own really starts off with the framing device of Someone recording a file or going through an archive and recording themselves like the characters recording themselves. It's kind of a way to kind of understand why they choose to make this story in audio. It's trying to capitalize capitalize on the fact that it's in audio a lot of people who do narrative You know it. Narration is Is is really just a creed creative twice. I think and in some ways it really does help. I really love the way that Victorio city which is a Alternative History That actually he has a narrator and in some ways it's there it's he's it's his own character. And he kinda give you little tidbits to really broaden the world but also you still see dialogue. Are you listening. You hear dialogue between the characters and that it there's balances to be made absolutely and I think at least there is really creative. Eight of choices to be made to balance the two as well L. E.. What are your thoughts on this I'm going to site Someone who I find very inspiring hiring Aaron Keown is the creator of a podcast called love and luck out of Australia And something that they have been saying for a long time is that Restrictions can breed ingenuity. So I think something important from this is is that you need to work with your resources right and if you are one person with not a lot of money one of the best things you can do to figure out how to tell your dream story is figure out what you do. Have you have yourself. You've got your mic in your computer. All right we're about out of time. Thank you very much That was Elena.

"Is one A.. I'm Kimberly Adams sitting in for Joshua Johnson in Washington audio fiction is experiencing something of a revolution here in the US. It's an art form that goes back to the very start of radio and it's back with with major companies pouring big money into audio dramas. We got into the action a little bit ourselves with our own bit of fiction at the top of the show. Courtesy the of one as jungle in Hill. Catherine Fink and more of in givens. So what's driving this resurgence and what caused audio dramas to fall out of favors until smartphones and podcast brought them back joining me now in studio is David Rehnstroem. The host of Radio Drama Revival podcast. How welcome to you? Want a thank you so much. Kimberly and joining us from Portland. Oregon is podcast critic and journalist. Elena Fernandez Condu- Collins who goes by Elliott Elliott Elliott. Welcome to one A.. Hi Thank you for having me all right so just to get US started. Elliot can you tell me. What exactly is audio fiction? Audio fiction is form of performance For fiction you have of a story that you want to tell and sometimes you do that in With one voice or many voices with sound design and with music and and what distinguishes audio fiction from say an audio book an audio book usually has one narrator Reading directly from from a taxed including things like all the pros. He said she said audio fiction. Sometimes has that But often ah just is more similar to a theater production or a play all right so David. Can you talk to us about the roots of audio fiction in an podcasts. Sure so let's let's go back. Let's take a little journey so there's kind of an unbroken tradition of audio fiction in the UK and Germany that Kinda stopped in the US With with the birth of television television didn't really kill audio drama in the UK like they have radio drama awards that are like the Oscars people are still super into it there. And you see this resurgence in the United States only really in the past fifteen years if we can cast our minds back to two thousand six or so The birth of podcasting this era. That's like two thousand six to two thousand nine is when you start to have. What's what's called pod faked what I would say is audio fiction almost pro audio fiction but to me? That's like the very origin of audio from in the United States and Canada. So David why do you think think. They've found a fashion here for a time. He mentioned that in the US in the UK and Europe. The there are still a strong addition tradition. Television was a part of something that made this fall out of favor here. Did War of the worlds have anything to do with it. I don't think it did that. was that would have been one thousand nine hundred eighty six right that that was the famous broadcast that everyone talks about is like having caused this immense panic. I don't think that because that was the mercury theatre near that was wells continued to produce stuff duff. Well after were of the world it certainly his most famous production today but radio dramas continued on through the postwar period I I would say that. Probably the biggest contributor to the lack of audio dramas in the television broadcast era was probably a decreased amount of Commissioning in bodies so the last commissioning body is so you know there used to be this called. NPR playhouse and your created stuff. Like I think your resources did like a a Don Quixote in like the seventies the last one that was done and this was really the last Hurrah some listeners might remember is the Star Wars Tie in audio dramas that were produced by. NPR playhouse in Lake from seventy nine to eighty three That had mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels as the only the only remaining members of the original cast But other than that you know and one that Jonathan Mitchell has done with the truth for various. NPR commissioning stuff. There hasn't been like a big public lick funding body the way that the BBC funds broadcast drama a fan of audio dramas Aaron in New Hampshire called in and left this message for us. I've been listening to audio dramas for a few years. Now some of my favorites are grilling space and dream boy. I continue to be impressed with what I'm hearing on. I think but in the same way that punk rock and hip hop kick open doors and change the way we look at pop music audio dramas are pushing storytelling boundaries and opening up space for stories. You wouldn't find elsewhere true crime and talk shows seem to get all the love and the podcasting world but audio dramas are the vanguard fiction. And I hope they're about to have a moment Elliott Aaron mentioned on the phone that nonfiction podcasts. Get more respect in the audio industry. Does that resonate with you. Oh it absolutely does it's It's it's slowly becoming Less so I do think that you know the comment about having a moment. A Capital M. is definitely happening But it was the case that you know if you looked at and if you look up podcast lists and best of's and and even just like themed lists from you know from past the fifteen years You're not going to find fiction on any of them and it's not until you get to around twenty twelve maybe Well Mental Welcome to Night Vale. got really popular. And then you'll start finding being welcome tonight veil on lists You'll start finding Within the wires a little bit later rate the bright sessions And then you'll also all your often find in some of the articles and some of the blurbs that are written about fiction podcasts to in order to promote out them in more recent years. They'll do that by throwing all of the rest of the fiction. podcast world under the bus. All right we're talking about the history history of audio fiction. But who's telling these stories. Today we're speaking with Elena Fernandez Collins and David Rhinestone of Radio Drama Revival will add some some new voices to our conversation in just a moment. I'm Kimberly Adams you're listening to one. Eight from W. A. M. U. and NPR support for NPR and the following message come from bear from advances in health to innovations in agriculture. Bear is advancing science for a better life because someone with heart issues should still be able to have their heart jumped with joy because farmer using less water should still be able to grow their crops.

New episodes every Tuesday and Thursday Thursday. Listen and subscribe to life Kit. This is one A.. I'm Kimberly Adams in for a Joshua. Johnson we're discussing the ever evolving world of audio fiction. Let's add two more folks to the conversation joining us now from marketplace in Los Us Angeles is James Kim. He's the Creator and producer of the new audio drama. PODCAST Moon Face James. Welcome to one A.. Thanks Ron Mecum. And also so here with us in studio is Lisa Alvarez. They're the Creator and producer of the Audio Fiction podcast Khalil Storm Fires Economical Magic Services. Awesome Avi here all right so James. Let's start with you. Can you talk a bit about moon. Face what inspired the show. Sure yes so. I was a radio radio producer for quite some time in covering entertainment and I just did a lot of stories and a lot of interviews with people of Color. Who always saying you know? No doors are opening opening for me Nobody everyone says that. My ideas You know they're they're not gonNA make any money in Hollywood and I was just looking at audio fiction and podcasting casting and and seeing it as a way in which all these creators especially in Los Angeles he of writers actors directors sound designers. Who aren't getting any work? And They WanNa tell their stories were. Here's like this medium that so much more affordable and you can do it yourself And so I just kind of got inspired by talking all these people getting getting really excited hoping that someone more people would do it and then I just thought well I don't know if I'm so passionate and maybe I should just step in and do it myself So that was kind of the the whole starting point of moon face and I just wanted to tell a story that I could relate to something that I wasn't seeing Hollywood and something that hopefully other other people could connect with And yet it's basically just a podcast about semi-autobiographical of accre American son who wants to come out to his mother But they can't speak the same language and then it just goes from there in more ways than one not speaking the same language moon face just came out this week. Here's here's the main character talking to his mom and a cashier at the grocery store. How.

S. so that people still listen to the shows that were westerns or crime series the mean those shows have kind of had an audience over time absolutely yeah I I the I should be clear the name of our show is radio drama revival we do not want to deny the vast and wondrous history of audio fiction in United States and in Europe and in Canada there's all sorts of income I first audio drama experience I was telling you before so my first like over the air experience was definitely the the guy noir sketches on program companion but the first classic audio drama that I listened to was the Nero the new Nero Wolfe radio mysteries from NBC blue with Sidney Greenstreet and those who have been from and are probably nineteen forty eight to nineteen fifty two or so so David why do you think they fell out of fashion here for time you mention that in the U.

"Catch the news roundup at the end of every week i'm jesse thorn digs from hamilton he was in the original cath or from kimmy schmidt or his movie blindspot he's also the MC in clipping rap group it's always pushing boundaries we are constantly sort of trying a thing out and being like does this equal rap song that's on the next bullseye for maximum fund dot org and NPR this is one a. i'm kimberly adams in for joshua johnson we're talking about the past present and future of audio fiction with creators james kim and lee set alvarez critic elena fernandez coach collins and david rhinestone of the radio drama revival podcast us and lisa let's start back with you but i i wanna play a clip from one of our listeners tatyana in richmond virginia my kid and i have been listening to a fictional podcast called six minutes on the way to their afternoon activities as we're driving and it's been an amazing experience especially because is this generation is so focused on image and i love to see my kids discussing how to how do they think the characters look or oh this voice belongs to that character and more like an more than that trying to predict what's going to happen it's been an amazing bonding moment for and i am just loving it lease at any indications for kids podcasts i do actually as someone who loves loves especially fantasy and fables i love mythology fleiss babel's by your very own morgan givens i would absolutely recommend a nazi storytime is also a pretty it's kind of like that anthropological storytelling type format by scooter man i also want to recommend i really love this it was a short it was a short limited a series called the two princes by that was created by gimblett and all three of those are really good i guess solid childlike child-friendly stories ellie i would recommend the explainable disappearance of mars pluto david you have one i would describe unexplainable disappearance of mars patel as stranger things for the nickelodeon set it's sort of like a mid grade it's like adventure light suspense drama i would also add my in crystal all to that another great one for i keep thinking of this in terms of book ages but that's another great adventure story for mid grade reader there's about a girl and her fight against some really deeply unethical loggers in belize so we've talked about now kids podcasts fantasy podcast is lots of talk about the quirkiness of the night vale elliott about sort of the business side of things as this jon rao expands how are these cast doing well that's a complicated question given a complicated answer yeah all right so when we look at the in podcasting and we're looking at specifically independent because almost all of the titles that we've said here so far all independent shows they are mostly being by a patriot on this fundraising platform that focuses on indie artists in the creators and and the answer is that they are doing okay they like it it depends on sort of the metric that you want to compare them to rate so if you want to compare them to the metric of certain non fiction shows like like my favorite murder rate and that style of of true crime they're not doing as well and that's partially because of the lack of media coverage and with the lack of from from when they weren't on lists and and from when they were kind of just being ignored that me is that it was much harder to build up marketing and build up kind of a force to be able to get people to come and donate money now we're starting to see these this mike i was mentioning earlier this big money like like q code like marvel right so marvel has just hired a bunch of indie creators to create their next podcasts they just hired lawrence shipping from the bright sessions michel stanton also from the bright sessions and our spirit oxygen the whisper forge and paul bay from the big loop to create marvels and james i imagine there's also sort of a finite audience we've talked about sort of independent funding there's some big pot podcast producers like gimblett and the sort to that are putting money into this of course i guess there's the fantasy that you're gonna get like optioned by amit zahn or hulu or something to turn your podcast into a movie or a serial serialized show james what is your sense of the landscape yeah i mean i think i've been seeing a lot of shows and independent shows in creators who talked to me specifically about them getting option for books or you know television shows or or film deals like learn shipping just released her book off the bright sessions and and you know you have paul bay who is also doing you know a two different shows like two of different podcasts are are being option for two different television shows so there is a lot of people who are paying attention to this space and specifically in hollywood and i think you know one thing that makes audio for action so appealing for you know for independent creators is also something that's appealing for for hollywood itself is that its original ideas you're you're being able to create whatever original deal you can do and people in hollywood are looking to podcasting and saying well we're constantly looking for original make something very immersive yet to pay you know all these actors you know moon faces had about thirty actors in the show and you know we paid sound designers a lot of people to step into this space and and really make their dream project but at the same time you know with with people paying more more attention dialogue in audio fiction also is there a space for literary fiction yes so this is a really great this really great point about framing devices so framing device is usually when you think about it in terms of audio fiction you'll see actually a lot of independent fiction podcast including me own really starts off with the framing device of someone recording a file or going through an archive and recording themselves like the characters recording themselves kind of a way to kind of understand why they choose to make the story in audio it's trying to capitalize on the fact that it's in audio a lot of people who do narrative you know narration is is is really just a creative choice i think and in some restrictions can breed ingenuity so i think something important from this is that you need to work with your resources the elliott thanks for being on the show things are having 'em we also have james kim the creator and producer of the audio drama podcast moon face james thank you i'm kimberly adams thank you so much listening
