News for Christians who love audio drama.

Tons of news about The family audio drama world!

Beyond mere entertainment

Over the past few years, ATC has highlighted many audio dramas my kids and I have come to enjoy and cherish.

Most of them are great entertainment, true, with quality voice acting, sound design, engaging writing, etc., but most of the stories and series’ recommended by ATC also have something deeper and more meaningful to offer on many levels. Most kids’ TV shows are the equivalent of candy — fun, perhaps, but soon forgotten. In contrast, what we’ve found from ATC are character-building and good for the soul, like a hearty meal.

Every time we get in the car, the kids ask for these audio stories. Thank you, ATC, for bringing so many great stories to our attention!
