Title: Audiobooks/Podcasts
Post by: Theomedes on December 02, 2017, 01:34:54 AM
I listen to audiobooks because I can't always make time to read things, but at least I can listen while drawing, exercising or doing yardwork. Here are just a few that I've found.
You guys listen to anything like this?

Magic Tree House audiobooks that we got in Wendy's kids meals. They were read by the author.

Also would Adventures in Odyssey count???

For any of my X-Men or Marvel fans out there, the X-Men audio drama is a surprisingly well-done, accurate-to-the-source-material audio series that is currently up for free on YouTube. I know you can download the episodes elsewhere legally on their site, but I forgot where. It may seem a little bit far-fetched and poorly acted/written at first, but once you realize that it is a direct adaptation of the original comic books, you cut it some slack.

It's fun, over-the-top and reminiscent of the old radio plays of days past. (Reference intended! Heheh.) There is some objectionable content later on; as it is an audio play, nothing is seen of course, but it has at least a couple instances of implied pre-marital sex between two underage, teenage characters, as well as a situation in which an unmarried couple live together in an apartment, and wake up in the same bed. Aside from some drinking and a bit of cussing, it's a perfectly good adaptation of the X-Men stories, and honestly, is really fun for me to listen to.

As for podcasts, all that comes to mind is Good Mythical Morning, lol. There's also always Adventures in Odyssey!

I found a good LibriVox recording of The Invisible Man ( by H. G. Wells. (Not every LibriVox recording is good, but sometimes, you find a diamond in the rough.)

EDIT: I also mean to listen to another one called The Wood Between the World ( by William Morris. I know nothing about this story, except the person who recommended it said it was good.
