Playwriting Podcast Sampler
I wrote this originally as a submission to New Play Exchange’s front page, but due to the formatting of linking to outside sites, they’re unable to run it. So, I decided to post it here instead.
I started this podcast in 2016 to highlight playwrights living and working in Boston. Since then I’ve found a plethora of other playwriting podcasts available for your listening pleasure, from highly polished and produced recordings to spontaneous ones where actors are thrown into scripts cold. I’ve compiled an undoubtedly incomplete list of them here: https://www.bostonpodcastplayers.com/playwriting-podcasts
To introduce the newcomer to this new genre, I’ve selected one play reading for each podcast listed that is available both for download on the podcast and on New Play Exchange. Read, and listen, to your heart’s content!
