So, imagine it’s Valentine’s Day.
You’re curled up in bed, browsing Netflix to find a rom-com flick to watch but nothing grabs your attention. So you try a book, but you don’t feel like reading a long one, yet you just want a story that needs to be told.
Don’t worry, audio dramas are here for you. Today, I’ll be sharing the best romance audio dramas that you should give a listen to!
What are audio dramas?
Audio dramas are fictional stories commonly produced in podcast form. Like an audiobook, except usually shorter, and with a full cast of voice actors.
I don’t really remember the first podcast I listened to, but I think it was Welcome To Night Vale 👁. What I do remember was binge-listening to The Bright Sessions 💡 several years back which started my love for audio drama podcasts. From there on, I found Limetown, Wolf 359, The Truth, and a lot more others.
I really enjoyed listening to audio dramas because of the full cast and it’s shorter and easier to digest than audiobooks. I think I spent most of my 2019 listening to them and going down the Reddit hole. Hello r/Audiodrama, I owe you a lot!
Going back, I realized that there are not enough romance audio dramas! Most of them are either mystery or sci-fi. AND I JUST WANT ROMANCE IN MY LIFE! So in my ongoing journey of finding romance audio dramas, here are some that I think you guys would enjoy!

Audio dramas are truly an immersive experience.
From the list above, my personal favorites are 36 Questions and RomComPods. I just love the idea of a musical podcast and I really love Jase and Judith’s story, albeit an open-ended one. Spoilers, I guess? But hey, it’s a really good story. As for RomComPods, the first season is really good too! It’s called Honeymoon For One and is about Claire who got dumped on the week of her wedding and decided to pursue the honeymoon trip by herself.
