September 2019 Audio Drama/Fiction Podcast Debut Releases

Every month, there are a large number of new audio drama and fiction podcasts released. These monthly lists collate everything I can find that has released an Ep1 in its RSS feed (or youtube page, depending) for the relevant month. Feel free to shout in the comments if you've got more information or corrections and I'll update with anything I'm missing.

And tell me which ones I should be listening to. What have you enjoyed this month?

Every two weeks, I'll be sharing the contents of these documents, which include police reports, witness statements, and other forms of records deemed too strange.
