Audioteria is a website and accompanying app that lets you buy and listen to independently produced audio dramas and take them with you wherever you go. Not only is it convenient, but you’ll be carrying around some of the best audio drama currently available.
At the moment, you buy shows direct from the producers or via websites that predominantly focus on the audiobook market and original audio drama gets lost; we want to put all that great listening in one easily accessible place. More importantly, some of our audio dramas will be exclusive to Audioteria and won’t be available anywhere else.
Audioteria is not a directory or streaming service, nor do we currently list podcasts.
No, but that’s our favourite thing! And if you’re here, it must be yours too.
There’ll be some room for non-fiction and factual audio, but our focus is on exciting, dramatic storytelling and the opportunity to discover a range of curated and bespoke shows.
That said, we’ll also have exclusive one-offs, audio theatre collaborations, enhanced audiobooks and audiobooks – made by all manner of creative people and companies.
Audioteria is currently available on iOS compatible devices with Android launching soon.
First off, set up your profile and download the app! Some shows will be free to download. Others can be bought online from the Audioteria shop.
You’ll be able to browse everything through the app, but you’ll need to head to the website to do your actual shopping.
After you’ve checked out (or subscribed), your show, book or series will automatically download to your phone or tablet ready for listening straight away.
You can listen to our audio on any device you prefer, but we recommend keeping all your Audioteria purchases to hand in the easily accessible app.
Not at first. Just buy what you want and enjoy the free stuff! In future as the content grows, we may introduce a subscription option, but the option to make one-off purchases won’t change.
Audioteria soft-launched in July 2023. We’re still doing testing and dealing with small bugs and issues as they occur, but the content is available and you can register and buy as per any online shop. If you have any problems, please get in touch via the Contact Us page. Audioteria will have its official launch in Autumn 2023.
We can’t. We wouldn’t dare...! But what we can do that Audible doesn’t, is focus on and prioritise high quality audio drama and give independent producers of those dramas a home where it can be heard and discovered time and time again.
Audioteria will give independent producers with content a platform to showcase audio that they may not have had the opportunity to monetise before, or a further non-exclusive platform if their work is currently also listed elsewhere.
Respected indie producer B7 Media – Well known for their high-quality audio productions including Dan Dare, Mahabharata Now, The Martian Chronicles, The Boy from Aleppo Who Painted the War, The Effect, The Space Race, I, Robot and many more. Most recently, B7 Media was behind Greenborne, the first nationally broadcast radio soap on air in 70 years not produced by the BBC.
Audioteria aspires to be a go-to name and one-stop focussing on independent audio drama - we'll keep working on it!
