Next, the article recommends The Edge of Sleep, a limited series podcast created by Jake Chozen writers Emanual and Willie Block. The scripted audio show is centered around a compelling plot in which falling asleep leads to death.

Those looking for a fictionalized true-crime story will enjoy Limetown, a popular series known for its hyperrealistic news reports, 911 calls, and interview recordings. The two-season series has since been adapted into both a book and a TV show.
Vurbl’s report also recommends The Hyacinth Disaster, which is narrated through the contents of an asteroid-mining vessel’s black box.
Last on the company’s review is the award-winning fictional series ars PARADOXICA. The podcast offers a unique meta-awareness format in which its audio is framed as coming from an uncovered voice diary.
