  • Not a podcast, but some great audio, The Prick and The Sting is a binaural audio experience created with, and for, blind and partially sighted audiences. A “darkly woven, gothic fable set in a shabby, crabby little theatre in the century before the century before last”, the show received funding from Arts Council England. It’s available until May 18, and was produced by Raucous, a Bristol-based immersive theatre company.

  • Podbean has extended the deadline to their Start Advertising on Podcasts contest. The competition is offering $2,000 of cash and promotion for your podcast, for making a creative-sounding ad.
