Bringing Back Radio Theater
3 LITTLE BIRDS
I love this podcast. I’ve heard my parents and grandparents talk about crowding around the radio and listening to their programs. Playing on Air is revitalizing this era. It doesn’t hurt that the actors are great and the plays are consistenly good. The after chats with the playwrights are enlightening and enjoyable.
A Super Fun Listen

This is such a fun podcast! On some days it’s the only thing that keeps me sane when I’m commuting on the subway.
Thank you, Playing on Air!
There’s something for everyone and every mood here, as well as short (5 minutes, even!) and longer plays, so you can always find exactly what you’re looking for to pass the time. Playing on Air is a treasure!
How did I not know about this?!
I’ve been a theater person since I was 5 and I can’t believe I didn’t find out about this podcast til now. It’s one of my faves - super easy to access radio plays with incredible actors & writers (helloooo timothee!) and I’m always left wanting more! Highly recommend.
Next big thing for theater
Unbelievable performers - Audra McDonald and Michelle Williams!?! - deeply entertaining, and very bingeable. This is the podcast that every theater person has been dreaming of. An amazing discovery!
I’m always eager to listen to each new play
I aam always delighted to find a new edition of Playing on Air to listen to. It’s amazing how entertaining, thought provoking, funny, heartwarming these short plays can be. R
This podcast has recently been added to my weekly "must listen" list. It's such a unique concept. Love it!
Absolutely fantastic show. Must listen!
Well produced and entertaining
I’m enjoying getting lost in these radio plays. I get both sucked into the theater, and also into an era of radio acting that I imagine myself time traveling back to. Really well done.
Great podcast, positive restucture
I have been following Playing on Air for a while. Recently, they started releasing one story per episode, instead of multiple performances, which I like a little better. Excellent selections and great performances. Highly recommended.
Theatre Geeks of the Podcast World Unite, This show should be a hit!
Short plays are like poems and not all of them will be to your taste, that being said I loved everything in the first three episodes. This show also gives you an interview with the Playwright that wrote the play you just heard. This is a huge extra to writers out in the middle of nowhere. Good Host that asks interesting questions. This Podcast is a must for Theatre Geeks and Theatre Lovers, and also fans of Radio Drama.
Playing On Air is the best! What I love about this show is the way it so seamlessly transports you into other worlds, vibrant and various. The episodes are pithy and thoughful, always leaving me full of thoughts and wishing for more.
Playing On Air is fantastic!
I'm a big fan of The Moth and Selected Shorts and this podcast is similarly awesome. Playing On Air is intimate and smart and a great resource for contemporary theater lovers. Amazing, amazing casts. Great production quality. The interviews with the writers are my favorite part.
