UNSEEN is the new urban fantasy audio fiction podcast by Long Story Short Productions. The premise behind it is simple: in a world where magic is real but invisible to almost everyone, for the few magical beings that exist every day is a struggle just to be seen.

Season one of UNSEEN will feature ten different stories of identity, connection, and personhood (and, of course, magic) in the modern world. Some of them will be thrilling adventures. Others may be sad and melancholic. Some may be creepy and unsettling. Each of them will feature a single performer, guiding the audience through a new, original modern fantasy landscape.

My favorite yet

Long Story Short Productions are just flat-out legends. You think you've heard every kind of world with magic, but you haven't, & this is the one you need !! The actors, guest writers, & other cast/crew also contribute so much to this series, it may be my favorite thing they've ever done. A must listen today !!!

HOO R U ,

Amazing! Please bring us more

This is hands downy favorite podcast ever, and I listen to a lot of them. So well written and well acted, so engaging. If you like fantasy set among reality you’ll love this. Adult themed but not vulgar or violent. Seriously, listen to one or two episodes, give a chance, you will love it.

Top shelf!

You’re not going to find better writing or voice acting anywhere! These are the best in the business, from some of my other favorite podcasts, coming together to bring us personal stories from a magical world. A+
