The idea for the series originated in 2018 when Annapods tweeted "Idea: a podfic podcast where each episode is an interview with a podficcer about one of their podfic projects. A mix between a freetalk conversation, a director's cut commentary and a review."
Signups opened May 6, 2019. Participants signed up in groups of two to interview and be interviewed by each other. The first episode was posted to AO3 on October 27, 2019.
A second series began posting in August 2020.
