Tired of the same, dull books-on-tape? Bored with crusty-old narrators with monotone voices? Looking for a little more insanity in your audiobooks? Then you’ve come to the right place!

Welcome to Bad Audiobooks!

We're a parody podcast that pokes fun of novels while reading them with ridiculous voices.

Each week, NickKent roll up their face sleeves and read like poorly trained circus animals.
Check out some of best (or worst) episodes so far:
  • Rumplestiltskin
  • Cinderella
  • Rapunzel

With your support on Patreon, we can dedicate more time to recording new episodes, hunting humans, and improving the podcast than ever before!

The weekly show will remain free, but by becoming a patron you'll help ensure that the podcast remains consistent in both quality and production. It also allows us to expand and create even more exciting content to satisfy your never-ending hunger for blood and the printed word spoken aloud.

So please, consider donating some schmeckles to our cause. Because with your support, we'll make more good books read badly for you!

About Us:

Nick Mazmanian started writing stories in junior high and decided being a writer was the job he wanted. Having to battle his dyslexia and ADD, he continued writing and graduated from Chapman University with a BFA in Creative Writing. He worked in video games, bouncing from Blizzard Entertainment to indie game studios where he continued to write. His first novella "Where Monsters Lie and Other Tales" was a Finalist in its category for the National Indie Excellence Awards. Nick's latest novel is Margo Flint and the Last Soldier, a post apocalyptic story about a girl, an ancient map, an A.I. friend, a helicopter, a big ass robot, and a secret that will change everything.

Kent Heidelman is a former Comic Shop Co-Owner, and past intern of comic publisher: Archaia Entertainment. He's the Creator of Comic Review Puppet, a webseries starring Kirby McStaples, an energetic puppet that posts about his favorite comics. Kent's other podcast is Comic Book Workshop, a show about making comics, discussed with the top creators in the industry! He's also the Co-Host of Comics Out Loud, a parody webseries that pokes fun of classic comics while reading them with crazy voices. Kent's current comic project is as the Creator, Writer, & Artist of the FREE comic: Scariest In Screamforth. It's a story about three kid monsters in a monster town trying to solve a dark mystery. Very Spooky-Cute!
