List of all the audio dramas I listened to by end of 2020. I will add to the list as I listen. I've added my 'review' for the stories I left one on - a few are quite long.

I almost didn’t get through Season 1, but I stuck with it and am glad I did. Our Fair City is the story of an apocalyptic world, ravaged by climate change, and focuses on the policies – err people (and Mole People) – of HartLife who go from being completely controlled by the Company to fighting for their rights and freedoms. At first, for me, there was just too much going on at one time, but towards Season 3 everything started to fall in to place and I couldn’t turn away. I had to know how the story would end, though didn’t want it to end either. There are many characters being juggled throughout the story but none of them feel like they don’t belong, and most of them are allowed to develop over time in the best and worst (of course there are villains) ways. The voice actors play some of the most fun characters I’ve heard in a while.

This is such a good audio drama. The story itself is told well, the soundscapes are beautiful, and the talks between the story are interesting as well. This is actually the first audio drama I've listened to that I listened to the episodes not directly part of the story, they were just so interesting there was no missing them. I wish there was more to it, I'd like to hear how the choices made effected others, but even without it the story still feels complete.

With blood on her hands, the infamous Dolores Roach has fled the recent shocking destruction in Washington Heights and gone into hiding deep under New York City in an abandoned subway tunnel. But she’s not alone underground, and her dark night of the soul is interrupted by an extremist faction of similarly self-exiled tunnel-dwellers whose space she's invaded. Facing re-incarceration back above ground, but pushed to the limits of shame, paranoia, lust, hunger, and depraved entrepreneurialism below it, Dolores is the outcast of the outcasts again - until she takes her survival in the tunnels into her own Magic Hands. Season 2 of The Horror of Dolores Roach is written and directed by Aaron Mark and stars Daphne Rubin-Vega, Donnell Rawlings, and Amy Ryan.

I really enjoyed the first season of this audio drama, the second season... not so much. The Horror of Dolores Roach centers on the life of Dolores after she is released from a sixteen year prison sentence. Initially, she seems interested in finding her boyfriend and being 'above board,' but her intentions warp and she goes from being a drug dealer (her initial arrest) to a cold blooded killer (or hunter as she likes to see herself). I thought the first season was really well done. The voice acting was great and the story itself kept me pulled in. Not only were there the horror and drama elements, but it also spoke on things such as gentrification and the wiping out of cultural areas when new, wealthier people, begin moving in. There are a few adult situations in this one, but they're not too graphic - which I appreciate since I listen to most shows at work (headphones in). The second season still had the same great voice acting and story telling, but this story didn't need to be told - imo. It went from an interesting tale to a weird underground cult led by mentally unstable cannibals, and I felt that really took away from The Horror of Dolores Roach. I think they could of stopped at Season One and wrapped it up with a great story there.

On a remote mountain in Hawaii, there's a fake planet Mars. Six volunteers are secluded in an imitation Mars habitat where they will work as imitation astronauts for one very real year. The goal: to help NASA understand what life might be like on the red planet—and plan for the day when the dress rehearsals are over, and we blast off for real. Host Lynn Levy has been chronicling this experiment from the moment the crew set foot in their habitat, communicating with them through audio diaries that detail their discoveries, their frustrations, and their evolving and devolving relationships with each other. From those diaries, Gimlet Media has crafted an addictive serialized documentary: the true story of a fake planet.

This started off really interesting, following the story of six volunteers in isolation with one another on a fake Mars to data mine information that can help scientist(+) put people on Mars. I enjoyed how easily it went between the story and historical/scientific information regarding space travel. Halfway through however it centered more on relationships than anything else. This still makes sense as data collection since it would be an important area to study regarding sending people to Mars for a long period of time, but those parts of the story just weren't as interesting to me.
