All of 2022's New Audio Drama, Audio Book and Actual Play Podcasts

Here's the big list of every new podcast I found that debuted in 2022, sorted by format and primary genre. The three formats, "Drama", "Book" and "RPG" are:

Drama - a script, written to be performed aloud, either by a full cast or a single person

Book - a reading of prose, though potentially with cast members reading different dialogue

RPG - actual plays of tabletop role-playing games

If you aren't on this list and you think you should be, or you are on this list and want to fill in more of the information for my database, contact me here.

(Click on a format title to move between formats, and then click on a genre title to expand - it's possible the "show/hide" div function doesn't work on all browsers. Try another one if so, and feel free to tell me what's wrong in my code.)

Also, this represents probably literal weeks of my life each year building/cataloguing databases. If you want to support this effort, I have both a Ko-Fi and a Patreon. Thanks!
