August 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.)
