About Us

Escape Pod is the premier science fiction podcast magazine, founded in 2005 by Serah Eley, and presently co-edited by Mur Lafferty and Valerie Valdes.

Every week we bring you short stories from some of today’s best science fiction, in convenient audio and text formats. Subscribe on your phone or your computer!

We pay our authors and narrators, but we will always be 100% free for you. We are supported through listener donations and sponsorship, so if you like what you hear, please consider sponsoring us via Patreon!
