Hanging Sloth Studios

Hanging Sloth Studios is a Manchester based podcasting studio. At the moment, the studio is run primarily by Pippin Eira Major (creative lead and Sloth-in-Chief), with two other founding members Alex Peilober-Richardson and Jessica Jeffrey as voice actors.

We started producing podcasts in 2020 during the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our first project was Clockwork Bird, a now-completed, 30 episode audiodrama about a missing cyborg and the people who are looking for him. Clockwork Bird launched in June 2020.

Our second project, the immersive horror audiodrama Spirit Box Radio, was launched on 19th November 2020. Spirit Box Radio follows temporary advice and community segment host Sam Enfield as he fills in for missing psychic, the Illustrious Madame Marie.

Our third audio drama, Challenger Deep Descent, is set to launch in October 2021.

We also make a Behind-the-Scenes podcast, Hanging with the Sloths, which is available exclusively on Patreon.

Our Values

Inclusivity – listening to voices of minority groups, championing them when we can, making any adjustments to work around barriers to participation in our projects due to disabilities or financial difficulties, and including under-represented groups creatively and conscienciously in our work.

Creativity – telling stories that challenge the status quo, whether that’s in their form, structure, narrative or simply who is telling the story.

Opportunity – providing a jumping-off point for people who want to get involved in podcasting, reaching out beyond common channels to find collaborators, and lifting up other creators to help them acheive their goals.

Accountability – making our practices the best they can be for everyone involed and anyone potentially impacted by them. We have some more information about accountability here.
