Rusty Quill Ltd continues the expansion of the RQ Network with a number of fan favorites and untapped talents from the world of audio drama. The largest of these is the global phenomenon We’re Alive, with over 250 million downloads, making it a contender for the biggest audio drama podcast of all time.
Today, they have announced several new series including I Am In Eskew, The Silt Verses (both Eskew Productions), The Milkman of St. Gaffs written and directed by Chris McClure, The Town Whispers written and directed by Cole Weavers, and We’re Alive an Audio Theatre for The Mind by Wayland Productions.
These shows feature themes of horror, action, and weird fiction and join the likes of iconic shows such as The Magnus Archives (Rusty Quill), Old Gods of Appalachia (DeepNerd Media), The Storage Papers (Grinner Media), The Deca Tapes (Written/Directed by Lex Noteboom), Cryptids (Wild Obscura; written by Alexander V Thompson), and How it Ends (written/directed by Stephanie Resendes and Micah Rodriguez).
We have been stunned by the support and interest RQ Network has seen in the independent podcast community,” CMO Callum Dougherty said. “We launched in May this year, with a goal to help fantastic creators better monetize their shows and reach a wider audience, and we have already seen a 1000% growth in a couple of shows. It has been a satisfying and fulfilling few months! Having We’re Alive come to RQ Network is a particular highlight as Kc Wayland’s seminal work was a huge inspiration and gave Rusty Quill a benchmark for great quality soundscape and storytelling.”
CEO Alexander J Newall said, “The RQ Network is a podcast network for podcasters, by podcasters. That means we champion storytelling at any scale, from stalwart creators building on previous successes right through to first-time podcasters who are bursting with potential. This second wave should be a great demonstration of our commitment to this goal and we’re so happy to be joining forces with such an array of talented people.”
