Please send no more than 5-minute recording of multiple takes of the sides provided for the character. You may also send a 5-minute recording of other voice acting experience.

Accessibility: If you require additional support, including Deaf or Blind accessibility to the sides/directing assistance, please feel free to reach out. I also encourage soft recording due-dates to help with anyone who needs that level of flexibility based on income, working hours, and other mitigating circumstances. I have been and am able to do last-minute rewrites to accommodate emergencies and self-care required on behalf of the actor.

Representation: I heavily advocate for more diversity in media and for that reason people of color, trans people, and people from other marginalized groups are particularly encouraged to audition. Anyone who is cast will also be encouraged to be an active part of the character-development process.

Non-Fiction podcast looking for new co-host

Hi all, due to work commitments, my co-host on the show Dark histories recently stepped out leaving me with something of a hole to fill. The show is fairly well established, currently on around episode 36-ish, with a good listenership.
Synopsis
Dark Histories tells the stories of our darkest moments, deepest mysteries and strangest happenings. From large cultural events to smaller, localised legends, we dabble in true crime, touch on the paranormal and revel in the underbelly of the strange. Or at least, that’s the official synopsis. As a general rule, the subjects are quite broad from week to week, covering anything a bit Fortean, a bit fringey. The mystery element is probably the biggest core. It’s not a banter filled show but it’s not completely straight either.
Production
We would record remotely using a VoIP service and each record our own audio that I then piece together, so location doesn’t play a huge factor. I’m UK based, but pretty much run on EST time. In terms of editing, I have that side of the show covered so there is no extra workload there.
About you
I’m fairly open minded on the new co-host, probably the number one thing I’m looking for is someone who has an interest in the topics. It doesn’t matter if you’re a sceptic or a firm believer (for the record, I’m a firm fence sitter, though heavily leaning to sceptic). A semi-capable mic would be the minimum required.
In terms of workload, that could be up to you and be as much or as little as you like. I write for the show solo as is, so you could just show up and hit record, or you could help to write episodes also, that would really be your call, depending on what we work out. If you can chip in on the social media, that would be a huge advantage as I am dreadful, though I give it a crack.
If you’re interested, you can contact me via email at contact@darkhistories.com

Audio Editor Needed!

We are an upcoming podcast that is looking for an Audio Editor and Producer. The script is written and performed by us. We just need someone to put everything together and work their magic to make it a cohesive show.

There will be 10 30-minute episodes that will need the following:
-sound effects to convey the right mood and atmosphere of the show

-background music as needed

-recorded audio edited to fit the script

Editors must be able to chat with us on Discord for brainstorm sessions, and be available through email.

This is unpaid, as funds are limited. We know it takes a lot to edit. We are not naive about how much work goes into it. At the moment this is a labor of love and hope someone else believes in our podcast as much as we do and wants to help us. If there should be any money at all made from our efforts, just know we WILL be giving money to our editor. But at this moment all we have to give is our gratitude and promotion of your work.

If you are interested in working with us, please send an example of some of your work to audiodramaqueens@gmail.com
General Plot:
Six women get together for an acting class and things go to hell. Literally.


The Ghost Radio Project

GRP roles are unpaid gigs. This is a labor of love. Knoxville-area residents only. Must be over 18 years of age to participate in the podcast.

Please do not apply for roles meant to represent minorities and marginalized groups if you do not share their identity. This means you must be a transgender person to play a trans character, you must be a person of color to play POC characters, you must be an Autistic person to play an Autistic character, etc.

If race is not specified in the role description, that does not mean the character is therefore white  — in The Ghost Radio Project, white is not a “default.”  Representation is very important to us. We want our cast to reflect real life and all the diversity therein. So, if you think you could play the character, please audition! No past acting experience is required.

AUDITION PROCESS

[Visit the site linked above and] Click a gender above to view available roles and apply. Alternatively, you may email theghostradioproject@gmail.com and let us know which role you are interested in to start the audition process. We will send you an audition script, and you will send us a quick video or audio audition. Please apply NOW, as our roles tend to fill very quickly. The first person to nail it gets the role, so make sure you’re at the top of the list by applying sooner rather than later.

  • Soldiers: Seeking multiple actors to play soldiers in the U.S. Army who patrol the Outlands and send out various military communications. All ages (18+) and identities are needed for these roles!

Looking For All Kinds of Help For Audiodrama Podcast

Hi, I make the audiodrama podcast At The End Of The Line, with the idea being it’s a post-apocalyptic travel show as the host journeys around a ruined England. Basically I get to play with every different apocalyptic scenario you can think of – zombies, Artificial Intelligence, plagues.
I pretty much do everything by myself and I’m looking for other people to be involved, it can be behind the scenes with writing, editing, music etc., but also looking for voice actors. The show is essentially one person, Richard Oliver, relaying what has happened recently but I want to have more “guests” being interviewed as well as having other actors to do segments or allow me greater options with narrative than me being the sole voice actor currently allows.

Any help would be greatly appreciated with full credit given but unfortunately no money.

Below is the website so you can see what the show is like –

Anyone interested me email – attheendofthelinepodcast@gmail.com or get in touch via twitter – @postapocpodcast
