The Audio drama usually have a genre hook. True crime, supernatural or Sci-fi. Moonface is a different kind of audio drama. It is a very personal story of a second-generation Korean-American struggling to come out to her mother that doesn’t speak English very well. The complete six episode story was...Show More

@cesarm Thanks for this recommendation! I definitely cried my eyes out at the last episode. Are other audio dramas not as great as this? Am I now spoiled?

This audio drama about a young gay Korean man who is struggling with his own identity was so beautifully produced. I balled at the last episode. The sound design was 👌👌👌 I loved how they designed the sound of “the past”. One thing that annoys me about most fiction podcasts is that they always a...Show More
