What is the Drabblecast?
The Drabblecast is an audio fiction magazine, genre fiction chosen by editors, produced as audio, and released as a weekly podcast.
What is a podcast?
A ‘podcast’ is a term commonly attributed to Apple, though coined earlier, meant to distinguish a form of regularly released audio content. Podcasts lie in the inter-space between blogs and radio. They come in all varieties, sports, leisure, special interest, etc. On The Drabblecast, we focus on storytelling.
How do we make money?
Truthfully, we don’t. The Drabblecast supports itself via a donation model. We receive contributions from listeners which we use to pay authors for the stories we run. That’s it.
So it’s Free?
Yep. Listen, and share all you like. Should you be able to, donating is both highly encouraged and highly desired. The larger our pot, the more we can commission, and the greater the pay rate we can offer to authors.
