Ivory Towers will be broadcast by 11th Hour Audio Productions on 30th October.

About World Audio Drama Day


October 30th, 2013 was the 75th anniversary of Orson Welles' classic and controversial radio production of "The War of the Worlds." This date became the first “Audio Drama Day”, the beginning of an annual celebration of audio drama in all its forms: new, old, scary, funny, serious, silly, classic, and modern.

Escape Velocity series 4 is in development! I'm currently working on the scripts that will become series 4 of Escape Velocity - where the story that has been gradually told over three seasons will finally come to a dramatic conclusion!

Escape Velocity is funded by you, the listeners and fans. I really couldn't make it without you so if you love the podcast please consider becoming one of our wonderful Patrons over at Patreon.com. Unlike a one-off crowdfund site, Patreon allows you to support the show one episode at a time. It's a really great way of making this podcast and I am hugely grateful to all my supporters.

Right now I'm planning additional content which will be exclusive to each episode's backers, so there isn't a better time than now to get involved in the series and keep up to date with development news as it happens!


Don't forget our awesome RTW store, where you can pick up other great audios by the creators of Escape Velocity. You can pick up the brilliant Chaos Reborn - The Audio Adventures on USB for only £7.99 + shipping, plus you get access to the download edition right away, so you don't even have to wait for the mail to start listening. And don't forget that we've got Forced Entry, a tale of Special Forces, a creepy house, demons and lots and lots of chills...
