I’m usually not a fan of dramatic reading podcasts; I usually go for full cast dramas, but Elizabeth Crowne has proven to be very well-done and nice to listen to. It’s presented very well, and it’s beautifully written (it really makes my inner grammar Nazi happy). The characters are strong, the plots engaging, and the atmosphere similar in feel to the era in which it takes place rather than a more modern-day feel. I’m really liking it; I’ll be sticking around for a while.

Narrated style podcast gold
I really enjoy this show. I listen to a lot of story telling/fiction podcasts; some are full cast and some are narrated more like an audio book. Both styles are great but I think I actually prefer the Elizabeth Crown stories narrated instead of casted.
The only “downside” is that stories release dates are spread out. I appreciate that the chapters are uploaded back to back, but the different story lines come out anywhere from 6 months to a year apart. I usually have to go back and re-listen to the previous story or two in order to catch up again. Thankfully this is a series I don’t mind listening to a few times. You always find something new with each play through.
Small critique: I listen mostly in the car or on my phone speaker instead of using headphones. Dr. Vermillion and other similar characters are really hard to understand without turning up the volume really high, so I find myself either going back to figure out what is being said or just hoping I can understand from context.
