Of all the adaptations of Ray Bradbury stories, my favourites are the Bradbury 13, a series of thirteen radio dramatizations currently available through Blackstone Audio. They make for an absolutely wonderful experience. I’m not the only one who feels that way. When Fred Greenhalgh of Radio Drama Revival, and Final Rune Productions, heard of Ray Bradbury’s death – he contacted Mike McDonough – the producer of the famous Bradbury 13 and got permission to podcast another episode – he got it, and so we got it!
