Today’s (late) Magic District touches on one local show — the Big Broadcast of October 30, 1938, taking place this weekend — and on audio fiction in general. It’s a little scattered, but mostly it’s about how fiction in a radio or podcast format or even just reading a piece aloud makes different demands on the audience and author alike.
I wonder: are there any stories that are solely meant to be read aloud? Not oral histories as such, but stories that don’t function nearly so well in written format. Hm.
