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 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.
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 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 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.
