June 2020 Audio Drama, Fiction and RPG 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?

(This post has all the first episodes embedded in it, and so might take ages to load. To avoid that problem, there's also a page with the embeds removed.)

Unfortunately for Jesse, those questionable means demand that if he wants the game he must play it not as a man, but as an adorable, little girl! And to make matters worse, once he gets in the game, he can't get back out! From that point on, it's all downhill for the poor girl-who's-not-actually-a-girl. Bloodthirsty player-killers, obnoxious role-players, eerily clever A.I.s - whatever this crazy virtual world can throw at him it does so in full force. Friends quickly become enemies, enemies quickly become friends, conspiracies and plots are everywhere, and absolutely nothing seems to go quite right.
