cantt find one ,

The only

Having listened to most if not all of this type of broadcasts. (Sci-fi fantasy) I find that Clarkesworld is the only program I can tolerate on a regular basis. Most other programs have annoying special effects and somewhat carnival aspect. This program takes itself seriously and allows me to do the-same.
Special mention goes out to Kate Baker. Her ability to differentiate characters with subtle voice alterations allows me to follow the story without being distracting.
The quality and variety of stories keeps me interested and prevents boredom.
I am a financial supporter and recommend this option to others so this excellent program continues to grow and excel.

High end stories

Simple narration let’s the stories stand on their own. Lots of good ones.

A reliable favorite with delightful delivery

I've been enjoying this podcast for more than three years, now, and have come to appreciate host Kate Baker's delivery. At first I was put off my a single presenter, but now enjoy having a consistent lens through which to view the differing styles of writing. I've recenty started listening to the entire archive from the beginning, and the breadth of available material is impressive. There are thirteen years of great stories to explore, along with the current productions. Good stuff!
