The love of stories dates back to pre-historic humans. For years stories were told around the fire, listeners enthralled. Moms, Dads, and caregivers have read to children since books were put into print. Listening to stories is entertaining and even soothing for so many people.
But, what of audio dramas? Not just someone reading the book to you, but the story being acted out orally by trained, talented actors. Big Finish offers a variety of audio dramas that are top quality story experiences for the listener. Sound and music along with the actors bring the story to life for listeners. It’s a story experience!

For many of us, we think of audio stories as bedtime stories that were read to us. If you love audiobooks, you think of someone reading a story to you.
