The Chronicles of Wild Hollow
Award-winning fantasy musical audio drama! ‘Best Audio Drama’ and ‘Best Mixing’ at the Indy PopCon Podcast Awards 2021. Shortlisted for the Imison Award at the BBC Audio Drama Awards 2022. In a far-off place, an endless forest grows; sprawling, barren, impenetrable. But beyond the tree line... creatures roam free. A land where adventure lurks around every corner. A land where legends are made. A land, called Wild Hollow. Blending epic set-piece drama, oddball comedy, cinematic orchestral score, original songs... and lots of talking animals. An original series by Shouting Is Funny.

"Imagine talking animals a la the Redwall series by Brian Jacques, but add a lot of alcohol and obvious—sometimes comedic—noir elements and you have a decent summary of this show’s worldbuilding premise. With jokes nothing to write home about and the tone switching faster than the plot can keep up with, this show tries not to take itself too seriously. The one memorable thing was the music and songwriting in each episode and it’s hit or miss whether they’re catchy or not."

"The narrative style is reminiscent of a written story, elevated by its audio medium. The soundtrack, the background noises, everything helps set the scene in a way that allows you to get lost in the moment. The story itself? Fantastic. "
