If you're getting bored with the usual "talking book" type story podcast, you might want to take a look at a few shows from Pacific Nortwhest Stories.
They do an interesting hybrid sort of narration that's part blog, part investigative reporting, and part docudrama. Pretty unique in my experience. You get to follow two investigative journalists as they uncover the mysteries behind The Black Tapes and the "un-sound" and an ancient multifaceted mystery that lies hidden beneath the enigmatic name "Tanis."
If you're a fan of all the usual lunatic fringe investigation memes such as: The Elder Gods, Cthulhu, UFOs, the Voynich Manuscript, various secret societies, government cover-ups and big conspiracies, etc. etc. etc. these shows will be right up your alley.
First up is TANIS
Tanis is a serialized bi-weekly podcast from the creators of Pacific Northwest Stories about a fascinating and surprising mystery: the myth of Tanis. Tanis is hosted by Nic Silver.

And other is The Black Tapes
show. It's tangentially related and features some of the same characters, but it's still its own thing.

The Black Tapes is a serialized docudrama about one journalist's search for truth, her enigmatic subject's mysterious past, and the literal and figurative ghosts that haunt them both.

Good fun for all. Both shows start off a little slowly. But they gradually draw you in and pick up the pace until you're completely hooked. Highly recommended.
