The Magnus Archives is an audio drama horror podcast centered on Jonathan Sims, Head Archivist of the Magnus Archives, recording the testimonials of people's encounters with the potentially supernaturally strange after the previous Archivist, Gertrude Robinson, disappeared.




TMA has a fairly significant Tumblr fandom for an audio drama. In 2019, TMA was the 9th most popular "Web Series" according to Tumblr Fandometrics' Year in Review 2019. The shows popularity spiked as the fourth season came to a close, around November of 2019.

Much of the fan activity involves fan theories and discussion, as well as fan art, as is common for podcasts.


The most popular pairing is Jonathan Sims/Martin Blackwood, followed by Elias Bouchard/Jonathan Sims. There is also interest in exploring relationships with various more supernatural characters, which often involve Xeno.
