More Audio Drama is the second collection of plays by Neville Teller, intended both for lovers of radio drama and for podcast producers who specialise in audio drama.
Neville is a veteran radio dramatist, with more than 50 BBC radio plays under his belt and scores more produced and broadcast across America by the San Francisco-based Shoestring Radio Theatre.
Back in 2019 he published his first collection of ten radio plays, Audio Drama. They have been so welcomed that he decided to make another ten available. Here they are – 10 more of Neville’s plays for radio and podcast, all of which have been produced and broadcast. As in his first book, these scripts are offered to podcast producers with no strings attached. The books on which they are based are all literary classics in the public domain. No performance rights are required.
Whether you are a podcast producer seeking fully realised audio drama scripts, or one of the worldwide listening audience who love radio drama with its power to create images in the mind’s eye, More Audio Drama is a book to treasure and enjoy.

Subtitle: 10 More Plays for Radio & Podcast I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. When I read Jim Straczynski’s The Complete Book of Scriptwriting back in June, one the part of that book that really captured my imagination was the section about writing for audio, specifically for radio and podcasting. This book includes sample scripts for ten different audio plays based on original works that are now in the public domain, and is a sequel to another collection of ten plays published earlier. I thought reading this would be a good chance to see what actual audio scripts look like and to give some careful thought as to whether this would be something I’d like to invest my time and energy in. The source material for this set of audio dramas included two stories by Edgar Allen Poe and one Sherlock Holmes story from Arthur Conan Doyle. To my knowledge none of them were contemporary stories, but they still gave good examples of how an audio script should look and read. I think my next step will be to adapt one of my own short stories into script form and see how well it works. I gave More Audio Drama four stars on Goodreads. Reading it has left me both encouraged that I could learn to write audit scripts effectively, and hopeful that I might someday experience some success by doing it.
