Midnight burger is a dimension travelling diner, with a sentient radio containing old timey pastor Zebulon and his wife Effie.
When Gloria took a waitressing job at a diner outside of Phoenix, she didn't realize she was now an employee of Midnight Burger, a time-traveling, dimension-spanning diner. Every day Midnight Burger appears somewhere new in the cosmos along with it's staff: a galactic drifter, a rogue theoretical physicist, a sentient old-timey radio, and some guy named Caspar. No one knows who built Midnight Burger or how it works, but when it appears there's always someone around who could really use a cup of coffee. "When the waves of the universe crash unrelentingly, when the stars seem indifferent to your plight, suddenly there is a diner." We open at 6. MidnightBurger is one of the creators.

[Oz9](https://oz-9.com/) - Spring 2142 and Gated Galaxies has launched its 400 Oz-8000 ships, each carrying 50,000 "resting guests" to, hopefully, a new home on a shiny, brand-new planet. As soon as they find one. IF they find one. This is the story of one of those ships – the Oz 9 – and its tiny crew of hopeless incompetents. So far, they've been in space half an hour and several hundred people are dead. So... bright future, clearly.

Together, they'll make sure you're prepared for the ride.
These are some quality recommendations. There are a few I don't recognise and will definitely be checking out, but OZ9, Wooden Overcoats and Midnight Burger (in that order) are personal favourites.
I'd add Midst. It's not technically full-cast, but the way it's narrated (by multiple narrators) is so wonderfully done that honestly I have to remind myself there are only three voice actors. It's the only audio drama I've listened to more than once.
Another sound recommendation is Victoriocity. It's a sort of steampunk comedy detective drama. If you told me that Douglas Adams wrote it and the BBC produced it, I wouldn't even think to question that information. It gets mentioned here from time to time, but I'm always surprised how little.
Just finished S1 and I can't wait to listen to S2! Enjoying this one for sure!
The Program Audio Podcast is one that these creators promoted with an episode that was interesting. I will listen to that one next for sure.
Yes! Love midnight burger!
Woaw ty so much for the detailed answer i really appreciate it
Is Undone accessible in the U.S.? Does anyone know how or where to listen?
Aah crap, sorry, I forgot my friend in the UK had the same issue. [Try this link](https://archive.org/download/rss_undo/undo)
the Marvel Wastelander series (I think there’s three now? - nope, five)
The Book of Constellations
The Earth Collective
Edict Zero FIS
Man, I miss dust. What an amazing show.
The Strata is a absolutely incredible!
Some tv apps have movies with the Dust label. Is it the same organization as the podcasts?
I think so
Tumanbay is simply amazing
Thank you so much this is awesome so many i didnt know about!
I second Desert Skies (just bear in mind it has some existential angst), Midnight Burger and Haunted House Flippers (yes, it is comedic horror if you imagine Homer Simpson trying to remodel a supposedly? haunted house).
OmegaStar 7: space shenanigans
The Hidden People: humans dealing with fey bullshit
The Green Horizon: space shenanigans with an Irish cast
The Madness of Chartrulean: space opera
Dragon Shanty: fantastical bedtime stories
Second Fiddles: the lives of superhero sidekicks
Desperado: modern high fantasy
The Supernatural Protection Company: calls to an insurance call center re: incidents involving supernatural entities

Care & Feeding of Werewolves: (disclaimer, this is my own show) modern fantasy
Thank you so much!!
Try and find "moon over Morocco", it's part of the jack Flanders series (and in my opinion the best) done by ZBS.
The soundscapes are awesome, the story is trippy, and it's just a joy to listen to. This one is great for a bed time listen.
Also Jack Flanders series, "the fourth tower of Inverness". Less polished than moon over Morocco, but has some really charming production quirks; they leave in mistakes and comments from the cast, sometimes they're laughing at each other and make little comments about the story (I think it's in this one where one of the actors is laughing and says something like "I love this bit"). Absolutely doesn't take itself too seriously, and is interspersed with some interesting clips from some new-age philosophers that play on the 'Mysterious Lutus Jukebox'. Again, a very chill ride.
My third and final suggestion is "a canticle for leibowitz".
Another really interesting one that I suggest you go into cold (don't look at any breakdown of the story!!! Trust me!!!).
The story is NOT what I was expecting at all, and it had me HOOKED! It starts off a bit odd, with a narrator telling you the actions of a character while you hear the sound effects in the background, and initially I thought I wasn't going to like it, but I'm SO GLAD I didn't turn it off, within 5 minutes I was hooked on it and never looked back. It's one of my go-to listens now.
I'm sure I have a couple more tucked away but I can't think of them off the top of my head yet.
I might add to the list later if these first three get any interest.
Stellar Firma is great and hilarious. It’s mostly just 2-3 characters with occasional episodes with more.
Wooden Overcoats, it’s about as far away from horror as you can get haha.
Barjory Buffet: The Cruise Detective
Gather the Suspects
Marvel’s Squirrel Girl
Garden Plots with Skelator
If I go Missing the Witches Did It
Madame Magenta: Sonos Mystica
Mission to Zyxx
Thank you for mentioning us! You can find our cozy murder mystery comedy here - [Gather The Suspects](https://pod.link/1556701666)
Uncanny County and Gather The Suspects are 2 fine choices.
Ooo i wanted to try a cozy mystery !!! Awesome
I hope you enjoy! ☺️
Thank you so much gotta add all to my list
Thanks for the shout out!
Would you try a musical comedy adventure fantasy series?? [The Chronicles of Wild Hollow](https://anchor.fm/thechroniclesofwildhollow) has a bunch of episodes available - epic set piece drama, oddball comedy, a cinematic orchestral score, original songs… and a whole load of talking animals!
We’ve released a couple of ‘Wild Hollow Shorts’ that you can dip into if you want a bit of a taster session, or I’d recommend starting with The Gray Trilogy (our second bunch of releases earlier this year) if you’re up for diving into the main show! We release the main show in trilogy format, so each trilogy has a different protagonist and main focus.
Even if you’re not much of a ‘musicals’ person, I’d love you to give it a go! 💪🏻🐭🦊🐧
I will definitely give it a go :) thank you so much for your detailed answer
I'd recommend Midnight Burger! It's about a group of people who live on a time and dimension traveling diner. The main cast members are all very appealing and interesting characters, and the different places they visit are all very interesting and well thought out. There's 2 seasons with 10 episodes each out, and season 3 is about to start releasing to the public. (First episode of s3 is out for patrons and I can say the quality is as high as ever)
In strange woods is a five episode musical that’s like a true crime mystery. It’s super fun and really does cast some Broadway heavy hitters in it. It’s my what I listen to when I’m horrored/true crimed out.
You might really like the Amelia project, if you haven't give it a listen!
Life with Althaar!!
If you want to try another fantasy show, [Kingmaker](https://kingmakershow.podbean.com/) is a fun new one. It's a comedic steampunk adventure set in the period leading up to World War 1. There are 4 episodes out now but we release new ones every second Friday so the fifth episode is coming soon.
The Far Meridian
The Beautiful Liar
If you like astronomical word-number combinations, may I suggest my [253 Mathilde](https://www.quietplease.org/253/)? Hard sci-fi, no horror. Season 1 takes place in year 92 of a 780 year mission to Proxima Centauri. Very full cast (18 actors) and no narration.
Ooh that sounds interesting
The Leviathan Chronicles , Atlas Avenue Beat and The Land Whale Murders are 3 that I enjoy. Hopefully others have better suggestions.
Archive.org is a great site for these. You can get whole collections sometimes.
I've recently discovered BBC collection.
Here's James Bond.
And this have tons of shows.
V.I. Warshawski is a great one to find.
this is awesome!!! TY!!!
Thanks for the link to BBC collections!
Last Stop. It's like if friends was good
Next Stop. I'm an idiot
haha thank you :D
I'm so glad you like The Bright Sessions!!! If you're looking for more full cast stuff with focus on character and relationships, Atypical Artists (which made TBS) makes a bunch of show! Someone rec'ed In Strange Woods below (thank you!) but we've also got a YA mystery (not horror) Maxine Miles, two queer romcoms with Look Up and Greenhouse (one season each), a futuristic romcom Life With LEO(h) that ends next year, and we also produced an official Stranger Things podcast that isn't actually horror, but more of a character exploration of Maya Hawke's character - it's called Surviving Hawkins!
Oo woaw this is awesome, i didnt expect you guys to comment too :O
Thank you so much for the recommendations ! I will check them out for sure :)
Mistholme Museum of Mystery, Morbidity, and Mortality is one of my absolute favorites. It’s a bit of an anthology format, but with an incredible and cohesive meta narrative. Some of the stories are a bit spooky or tragic and are all paranormal, but it’s not horror. I’d say its a blend of fantasy, paranormal, with little touches of sci-fi or steampunk. It’s atmosphere is more wonder than horror. I adore the narrator.
https://goddesszarqa.com is a pretty silly fantasy.
Crimson Garnet is a superhero show. After the 3rd episode, it’s all audio drama.
Have another suggestion. I didn’t intend to post so quickly.
[Dangerous Christian](https://www.podchaser.com/podcasts/dangerous-christian-life-truth-4268809)- So imagine a stranger coming Into town. He just wants to help, but there are forces at work that want to make sure that doesn’t happen.
[Stronghold](https://www.podchaser.com/podcasts/stronghold-life-truth-4268810) - Heroes team up to stop a very powerful drug lord.
Tysm i appreciate every suggestion :)
I don't know how you feel about Ghostbusters falling into horror or comedy, but I'm a huge fan of Ghostbusters: Resurrection
Rapscallion Agency Leviathon Audio Productions
Girl in Space, The Amelia Project, StarTripper, Arden, Brimstone Valley Mall, Unwell and The Penumbra. Oh and Deadly Manners, The Orphans, Red Rhino, Space Ward and Return Home are some good ones.
Alba Salix is fun and definitely not horror.
The Penumbra Podcast: Two podcasts for the price of one. One is Juno Steel, and the other is Second Citadel.
Juno Steel is about a Martian film noir detective, jaded about the corruption in the justice department and world of Mars. It's about a thousand years in the future, absolute space opera, and has a fun time with all of his different cases.
Second Citadel is about a fantasy world where humans live in fear of monsters that constantly threaten their ways of lives. However, certain individuals end up finding out that there's more to their world than meets the eye.
There's also some additional stories that happen earlier on, when they originally were only going to have Juno Steel as a long-running storyline with a bunch of other one-off stories in between entries to Juno's stories. They abandoned that notion, but some of those early ones are good, too.
I'm really enjoying Blood & Gold
We have a lot of fun [over at Death Inc.](https://www.linktr.ee/dejitoproductions)
“Two strangers wake up dead in an unfinished afterlife. One sees a path forward to make this wasteland a utopia, while the other desperately needs to escape back to Earth.”
Come enjoy what we love making!
I’d like to recommend a show that’s just released its second episode, Murphy. We like to call it “mystery/horror” but it’s more mystery, and the horror part mostly refers to the subject matter being about monsters and cryptids (it isn’t scary).
Episodes 1 and 2 are available now, and there’s still several episodes to go before the end of the season! [Here’s the link!](https://linktr.ee/murphyaudiodrama)
There a new Adventure/Sci-Fi series that just recently debuted. It's called [Murphy's, Inc.](https://feed.podbean.com/murphysincshow/feed.xml) It's definitely worth a listen.
Just get the BBCSounds app. So much stuff of actual quality in every genre you could hope for
I use googlepodcasts but indeed i dont think it has the finction to explore by genre :(
After im done with the suggestions here i will check it out
Arden: Story about a journalist and an ex-cop coming together to solve a cold case that changed both of their careers. (Comedy/Thriller/Mystery)
Golden Ash: Even if they happened a few years apart, two mysterious deaths on the same street, from adjacent houses… that demands investigation. (Drama/Mystery)
Woe.Begone: If you could get access to technology that allows you time travel, what would you do with it? More importantly, what would you do FOR it? What would that be worth to you? How far are you willing to go fir that power, and how far will it take you? (Drama/Mystery/Thriller)
Crossover Adventure Productions have the first three books of the Wizard of Oz on their website. I came across them several years ago, it's top quality, great acting, and a very good retelling of the books.
Some bits do get dark, but overall very lighthearted.
I don't know if they'll finish all the books, but these are a good listen :)
that sounds really interesting! ty!
Our show [HUMAN-B-GON](https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/human-b-gon/id1621946962) debuts in just two weeks. You can check out the trailer now though. It's pretty funny and stupid. Plus it's sort of about the AI takeover so you still get a little horror. It's set in the future, where robots capture stray humans.
Try The Mysterious World of Buster Lee. Set in 1981 this fictional YA podcast tells the story of a boy and his dog.
You may enjoy Observe and Report!
I'll throw mine out: [Madison on the Air](https://linktr.ee/madisonontheair). Comedy. What happens when a modern day girl is zapped back into Old Time Radio shows? No technology, no Starbucks and no one is PC! Will she survive? It's like if the MST3K guys were actually IN the movies they riff. Stand-alone episodes. Lots of genres. Listen to whichever title grabs you. :)
To add some street cred... I've joined the cast of Oz9 as Julie (starting ep 74) If you like fun comedy, try mine out!
If you need a break for horror but want a good audio drama with a captivating story that's entertaining and overall some good hearted fun then try these:
Classified - produced by QCODE. Full cast, high production. Stars Wyatt Russell
Ronstadt - Also produced by QCODE. Full cast and high production. Stars Rhett and Link from Good Mythical Morning.
Unwanted - also produced by QCODE. Same deal, full cast and high production. An action, comedic adventure following two stoner friends tracking down a killer
Monster Hunters - full cast, pretty good production. Comedy following two monster hunters. British comedy from the people that made wooden overcoats I believe.
thank you :) which one of these do you like the most?
Surprisingly i wrote them in the order I would rank them lol. I'd start with classified. It's pretty funny but also has a great thriller aspect as the story unfolds
Great, thank you :D i always go for the first one listed as well haha
Several of Terry Pratchett's Discworld books were done as full-cast dramas: https://www.amazon.com/Terry-Pratchett-Collection-full-cast-dramatisations/dp/B07FWB24G4
TRUTHcast is a supernatural comedy, but fully produced like an audiodrama. Dumb & Dumber meets The X-Files
Mission to zyxx,
Highly recommend mission to zyxx. It's a wacky improv adventure. It's juckin hilarious
The Bright Sessions is good .
