ABOUT THE CREATOR

Alex Hensley is an audio fiction enthusiast living and working in southwest Ohio. They are nonbinary and prefer They/Them pronouns, but no longer care for whatever pronouns people use for them. Alex started writing about audio fiction podcasts in 2017 on Twitter. Shortly after that they started a blog on WordPress. This website is run by them in addition to having a full-time job. Audio Drama Rama is a labor of love and was created to share Alex's love for all things audio fiction. They love finding new (or new to them) audio fiction podcasts to add to their playlist.

Breaking the wall to speak in first person. If you are not a straight white cis male, please send me your podcast. If you are proud of what you created, please send it to me. I love listening to new audio fiction podcasts, and that includes improv and actual play podcasts. If you are telling a story in some way, it's audio fiction. You can send me an email. If you want to surprise and confuse me, you can send it by mail. I'm horrible with checking social media messages, so don't be surprised if it takes forever for me to see it or respond.

AUDIO FICTION QUILT

In December of 2019, before I bought my house and moved, I made my first quilt. Well, the first quilt I made by myself, I made quilts with my dad and with my grandma when I was younger. But this was the first one I made by myself. It is in no way perfect. But I am incredibly proud of my audio fiction quilt. I bought all the shirts to make into a quilt and even got a few donated to me when people learned I was making it.

FUTURE PROJECTS

COOKBOOK

For a few years now, I have been working on a cookbook that has been inspired by audio fiction podcasts on my playlist. I am planning to have the cookbooks available for purchase once it is finished.

ANOTHER QUILT

While making the first audio fiction quilt, I learned quite a lot about the process of quilting. I also didn't have the space to do it, so I had planned on making more of them. Once my craft room is finished, you better believe I will be making another audio fiction quilt.

LIBRARY DONATION

Before I had to move abruptly, I was planning on donating a Maker's Kit to the library in the city I was living. However, I wasn't able to do it since I had to move into the worst apartment I have ever lived in before my best friend and I bought our forever home. I would love to make a podcasting kit for the library in my village. I think it would be wonderful. I would also like to donate more kits to other libraries in the future.
