Happy new year, ATC fans! 2023 was a banner year for audio drama. Some really amazing productions were released and new series made their debut. 2024 doesn't look like things will be slowing down any so let's take a look at some of the releases fans can look forward to hearing in this new year.

Wise King Media is bringing back an old show of theirs this year. Some may remember the audio-drama-released-as-a-podcast Mack Meets History.

Episodes will likely be released sometime later in the year.

After 5 years, people are finally going to get to hear more of Tannhauser Gate Entertainment's Jake Muller Adventures. The second installment of the series entitled Blood will be released in mid 2024.
