January 2021 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 been simplified, due to page load time. There's also a page with all the first episodes embedded in it, but beware, it might take ages to load.)

Now, thanks to the actions of their strange new friend, they have another chance. The king does not know that they still live, much less that they now know where his power comes from. Now they have to come up with a new plan and remove as much of the king’s power as possible before he realizes they are still alive. Along the way they will meet new, interesting friends and discover just how far the king has gone to preserve his own life. If they fail this time, there will be no coming back.

Several of her human travel companions are physically injured by the technology used for space travel. Some suffer uncomfortable but transitory side effects. Others experience memory loss or severe physical harm. With no expedient way home to Earth the humans and Sharp's alien guardian are forced to solve their shared circumstances.
