About The Other 1% Podcast Channel
The Other 1% launched in Brighton on 23rd July 2018. To date, our global audience has grown from zero to over 60,000 listens.
Our podcast was conceived with the aim of promoting local actors and writers to a global audience. Initially, the writers brief was for original stories based upon true accounts (allegedly) of the paranormal. In November, to expand the brief and offer writers more creative freedom, we changed this to ‘Stories with Attitude’ for mature listeners.
The Other 1% is for listeners who want smart, edgy, contemporary fiction that challenges expected convention. Psychologically intense and provocative audio drama that we too want to listen to. Vertigo Comics for listeners!
The stories are single or multi-episode full cast audio dramas and dramatic monologues. We have also experimented with telling stories through multiple viewpoints.
In 2019, The Other % will give opportunities to more creatives from all backgrounds, especially those under-represented, to gain experience and professional credits for their CVs, whilst continuing to give experienced writers and actors a chance to tell stories not normally commissioned on traditional platforms.
The Other 1% has had an exceptional first 6 months, commissioning 55 scripts and publishing 32 episodes.
