The series will be produced by long-time AFTRS guest radio lecturer Sophie Townsend and will air every Saturday from 1.00 pm AEST.
“There’s been a huge resurgence in people listening to audio fiction around the world and as the national broadcaster we want to bring new and compelling creative works to our listeners. It’s a very human thing to want to hear stories and ‘Radio National Fictions’ is where you’ll get to enjoy a broad range of new and different stories – from really hilarious series to dark dystopian worlds.”
