Featured Podcast: Darker Projects

darkerp Featured Podcast: Darker Projects

Technically Darker Projects isn’t a podcast in itself, but rather a group that produce audio theatre in podcast form. The concept is like audio books, but every character has it’s own actor and the quality and mood it creates far outmatches anything you can get from a regular audio book. The series’ they do are produced by themselves based off either original content, famous TV series’ or books.

Most of the series are either fantasy or science fiction based so some interest in these genres is required. The episodes are released rather slow, with everything from a month to a year in between each episode. While this is a result of the project being a hobby for everyone involved, it does make the listener experience a bit choppy as you forgot what happened the last time by the time the new episode of a series is out. There are however many older series (now finished) that have a full range of episodes that can be listened to start to end. Well worth checking out if you’re into audio books and the genres mentioned.

These guys are great. I’ve listened to most of the content so far and it’s high quality. Too bad they release so slowly though, it’s been two months since their last release I think. :-(

@Tom: Seems the rss feeds work if you go to individual shows, at least some of them. Even then some are screwed, like the falcon banner, but i got some that have the dp address to work by using feedproxy instead. IE the address was http://www.darkerprojects.com/feeds/thefalconbanner.xml and i changed it manually to http://feedproxy.google.com/thefalconbanner.xmlUnfortunately their webdesigners arent that great, problems like these last forever and the website isnt exactly as high quality as the shows. That automatic playback thing on the front page in itself is driving me crazy

Tried two of the Darker Matter episodes from Dark Projects. Very preachy and heavy handed. I’m not stupid and can get the point without being hit over the head.
