Podcast Selections: Polyamoury, Erotica and Speculative Fiction

Podcasts are meaningful media for me; they’re the closest thing to radio I can have any passion about. Here is a selection of sexy, speculative and informative ‘casts that I have recently added to the ‘casts I enjoy enough to listen to weekly.

These ‘casts often include mature, sexual or violent content, so if you’re timid you may not want to explore the material I am about to present. If you are interested in being challenged in thinking about relationships, wish to be tantalized with otherworldly fiction and … wish to be tantalized with otherworldly fiction, read on.

Polyamory Weekly

Polyamory Weekly explores issues that surround polyamoury and its practitioners with as much seriousness as lightheartedness. Host Cunning Minx takes us on a sexy, fun ride through ethical non-monogamy which still dives into important questions.

Polyamory Weekly is the first podcast devoted to tales of responsible non-monogamy, presented from a pansexual, kink-friendly point of view. With the tag line, “It’s not all about the sex,” host Cunning Minx and her guests tackle topics from jealousy to spirituality to the slippery slope to, well, sex. ~ “The Best of Poly Weekly

Metamor City

Chris Lester‘s Metamor City is a shared world urban fantasy filled with clever twists and good storytelling. The narration is superb, with a who’s-who of podcasting voices that includes Cunning Minx, Philippa Ballantine, Mur Lafferty, Steve Ely, and J.C. Hutchins. If you have any taste for the fantastic, Metamor City is definitely worth a listen.

The Metamor City Podcast is an audio fiction series that is distributed for free through this website. It will feature a mixture of short stories and full-length novels, all taking place in one large world with an overarching story arc. Combining the narration of audiobooks with the music, sound effects and full vocal cast of a serial radio drama, The Metamor City Podcast provides an immersive audio experience of a world like no other.

The stories of The Metamor City Podcast take place in a high-magic, high-technology setting, an epic fantasy world projected into the near future. The action focuses primarily on the inhabitants of Metamor City, a mega-metropolis that is also the capital of the world’s largest superpower, the Empire of Metamor.

Erotica a la Carte

Erotica a la Carte is Philippa Ballantine‘s delicious audience-driven speculative erotica podcast. Each month Philippa or a guest writer creates a short erotic story based on listeners’ poll responses. The great narration and quality storytelling of Erotica a la Carte deliver genuinely arousing experiences. Be sure to listen to “Tears Such as Angels Weep“, my favourite ‘cast.

An experiment in short story writing. Award nominated speculative fiction writer and award winning podcaster, P J Ballantine and invited guest chefs will offer a saucy menu to listeners from the erotica a la carte kitchen.

Here are the rules of the restaurant.

The chefs will produce a menu which will be posted on the 15th of each month.
It will stay up until the 15th of the next month, when the listeners’ choices will be delivered to the chef.
The chef will then have another month to write and produce the podcast.

Each story will be speculative fiction -fantasy, science fiction or horror- and will be at most 5,000 words in length.
