Bombs Always Beep: Creating Modern Audio Theater is an exploration of the entire production process of constructing modern audio narratives. Podcasts have facilitated a renaissance of independent audio-only series, and they are expanding at a rapid rate. Currently, there are no other books available that explain in detail the inner workings of creating audio narratives by way of the new podcast distribution system. Most literature focuses on the dated production and writing methods from the Golden Age of Radio or the BBC radio distribution models. However, entire companies are now being built upon contemporary storytelling production techniques, funded by crowdsourcing and advertising. This book covers the process from beginning to end: How to create compelling modern audio theater and distribute it online.
