Ever since the early days of radio, science fiction has found a natural expression via audio broadcasting. The speculative themes of the finest SF seem ideally suited to be shared by the dramatic presentation of the spoken word. Over the decades, SF has left a lasting mark on audiences who have heard it through the airwaves, on audiobook tapes and CDs, and in person, read aloud. With the advent of the podcasting revolution, however, a new frontier opened for the expression and celebration of quality SF literature. One of the leading pioneers of that frontier was StarShipSofa and its Aural Delights program.
