Radio Dramas Making a Comeback?

It appears that radio dramas are making a little bit of a comeback. Gimlet Media has produced a new series entitled: "Homecoming". Below is the description of the new series:

A new psychological thriller from Gimlet Media, starring Catherine Keener, Oscar Isaac, and David Schwimmer."

That's some pretty big names. I mean, Oscar Isaac has appeared in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, X-Men: Apocalypse, and Inside Llewyn Davis. David Schwimmer is of course one of the stars of Friends, and Catherine Keener is from Capote and Inside John Malkovich.

I'm excited about this. In my opinion the podcasting side of the media is the must exciting branch today. It's taking chances and trying new things. This could help introduce a whole new generation to the theater of the mind. Who knows, maybe we will see a resurgence of the old shows such as: Suspense, X Minus One, or even any of the other countless classic radio dramas.

If you want to check out Homecoming, episode 1 is embedded below.
