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.

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.

Casting Call for Nym’s Nebulous Notions A Scifi Audio Drama Podcast

We are producing a small, limited episode scifi audio drama about what happens when conspiracies take unexpected turns and the only clues left behind are without any of the context that made them.
We follow the adventures of Nym (short for Pseudonym, naturally!) as she investigates a strange signal she intercepted.  Is it aliens?  Clones?  The government?  All of the above?  Nym is determined to find out!
The show will be a total of approximately two hours long, split into 12 short episodes.  All the episodes will be released at once, netflix style.  It will be available on all podcast platforms, youtube, a website, and hopefully, also as an audio book.
This is a side project for everyone involved, so project completion isn’t expected until early 2019.  We will expect turnaround from our actors to take no longer than four to six weeks, but of course sooner is always better.
The script is written by Jamie Drake, Asajii Reynolds, Morgan Junor and Erin Kyan.
Produced by Erin Kyan (erinkyan.com) of Passer Vulpes Productions (passervulpes.com).  Erin’s other production work is the Love and Luck podcast (loveandluckpodcast.com), Australia’s first LGBT audio drama podcast.  He is experienced in audio drama production and determined to see this project through to its completion.


These characters are all crew on the Stribog, the ship orbiting Fons. They are supporting roles, appearing in 1 – 3 episodes in season 1, with possibly larger roles in future seasons.

Recordings are conducted over Discord, so your location does not matter, as long as you are able to record with the team. You must have a decent microphone and a quiet place to record.

Gender is specified for some roles, but we encourage trans and nb actors to audition. As long as you are comfortable being referred to by the pronouns of the character, we are happy to have you. If gender is not specified, then it is malleable and dependent on the actor that we choose.

Unless specified in the role, we encourage actors of all ethnicities and backgrounds to audition.

If you are interested in auditioning, email us at tidespodcast@gmail.com and we will send you a small scene to read.

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

Casting Call for The Spider Initiative S1 E00 Prologue

What is The Spider Initiative?

The Spider Initiative is an upcoming sci-fi/comedy audio drama podcast. The first season will consist of 9 total episodes. The first episode is a Prologue episode setting up the story and introducing the main character, Wolf.

What is the premise?

In the distant future, several governments have joined together to form The Spider Initiative, a project with one goal: to protect their future by changing actions of the past. By sending agents back in time and influencing small decisions, they prevent catastrophic future events. If the butterfly effect is real, then Spiders, the operatives, are the butterfly hunters. The Spider Initiative follows one Spider operative, Wolf, through his mission log as he attempts to thwart a future dictator deadset on world domination. Unfortunately, he must also deal with the culture shock that comes from traveling back in time to the year 2018.

What roles are available?

This first episode will be casting two main recurring roles, with future episodes casting both main recurring and minor, episode-specific roles. There will also be background roles available, such as “crowd voices.” The paid roles will receive payment when recording is finished on each episode.

What do I need to get a role?

Production on the podcast will be done via remote recording using Zencastr, so a reliable internet connection is a must. I’ll be doing all the post-production work including removing some background noise and polishing off vocal tracks, but a decent microphone and the ability to record in a quiet setting is a must. I’ll need to be in contact with cast members about scripts, online “table reads,” and the official recording schedule. If you cannot keep in contact with me, or I don’t hear from you after three attempts, I will recast the role. Those auditioning for recurring roles must understand you are agreeing to a 9 episode minimum, and I would love to make more than one season. 

I look forward to hearing your auditions.

Pineapple Street Media is a podcast production company based in Brooklyn. Our shows include Missing Richard SimmonsHeaven’s GateStill ProcessingWomen of the HourStay Tuned with Preet BhararaNever Before with Janet Mock, and more.

You will work on a deeply produced and reported documentary series. We will consider any level of experience, but prefer to work with someone with some sort of audio editing background.

The Pineapple fellowship starts in the summer of 2018, exact dates to be determined based on your schedule and ours.

Fellows receive a stipend of $3,000 per month. In addition to production experience, fellows have weekly mentorship meetings with Pineapple staff producers and editors. We will also help connect you with people in the industry.


What to submit:
Your current resumé
Cover letter
1-3 work samples (audio production preferred; but does not need to be audio)
