What evil lurks within the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!
This week, we’re talking about radio dramas with Steve Saylor, a storyteller and digital producer who currently works in Toronto.
Steve produces podcasts, writes short fiction, performs comedy, and works as a New Broadcast Media Professor at Humber. He recently produced an interview with Dee Snider of Twisted Sister.
Many playwrights got their start on the BBC.
Caryl Churchill, a well-known political dramatist, started writing radio dramas in the 1960s.
Tom Stoppard got his start at the BBC as well, producing his first play for the BBC’s Just Before Midnight program. He recently wrote a radio drama, Dark Side, for the BBC to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s album Dark Side of the Moon.
The BBC continues to produce hundreds of radio dramas every year.
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman was recently adapted to radio drama. Neil Gaiman was excited for the project as it was able to use more special effects in a believable way than would have been possible onscreen.
As always, thanks for listening!
