Modern, original audio drama is our specialty – gripping, energizing ‘movies for your mind’


Radio drama, audio theater, audio drama, audio fiction–whatever the moniker, we’re talking about stories told with the power of sound alone. Calling on a history pioneered by the likes of Orson Welles, Norman Corwin, and Arch Oboler, FinalRune’s modern audio dramas honor the tradition of the 40s and 50s while propelling the art form into the 21st century.

We use cutting-edge on location recording techniques, immersive sound design, complex and talented casts, and original scores to haunt, thrill, amuse, and delight. Our stories [mostly originals] question, prod, explore. We chart the demise of modern civilization, wonder what would happen if trolls lived in our midst, or open the doors on a haunted house where something dark lurks in the basement.

We make our shows available as free downloads, and enjoy them on the go: grab our RSS Feed, dig us up in iTunes or Stitcher radio, find us on SoundCloud and use their app, or dim the lights, press the play button on your computer, and kill your monitor and get ready to go on a journey of the imagination.

Our works have reached millions of listeners from every country on the globe, and we’ve produced on commission for everyone from Audible to small independent producers.

Our stories broadcast on the biggest screen you’ll ever have: your mind. Now sit back and enjoy the ride.
