Welcome to Tea in the Sahara’s review page on all things podcast & audio drama related. With my reviews, I hope to share with you exciting, and immersive podcast content to explore from some of the most creative writers, cutting edge producers, and exceptional voice actors within the podcast arena.

Not sure where to start? Check out my exclusive review of the amazing audio drama ‘Restart’ written by Brett Neichin & John Scott Dryden a Goldhawk Production commissioned by BBC Sounds. Or if you like your podcasts with a bit of pace & excitement flooded with an immersive sound why not check out ‘SOLAR’.

Indie podcast lovers looking for true escapism I have you covered with the amazingly talented ‘Night Post’ collectively created by Rae Lundberg, Ethan Thomason, Tyler Anderson, and Elizabeth R.C Lundberg.

And finally, if you like to get up close and personal with writers & sound design guys you should listen to my Q&A sessions where I put questions to these wonderfully creative people for your reading pleasure.
