Dear Author is a term in podfic that was created in response to several publicized misunderstandings in 2010. revolutionaryjo started a trend in writing a generic "dear author" letter to clearly outline the podficcer's expectations when an author grants permission.

The trend was started by the post Podfic Meta: Dear Author[1], in which revolutionaryjo remarked, "There have been a lot of discussions floating around about podfic lately that are making me realize just how easily miscommunication can happen between a podficcer and an author." [2]
