Spiteful Puppet was born out of frustration and a desire to entertain.

The company was formed in 2013 by Iain Meadows and Matt Hopper, who were full of ideas for audio dramas but found it difficult to gain access to the regular commissioning channels such as BBC Radio.

A few short years later, and Spiteful Puppet is now well established in the world of audio drama.Our productions have been heaped with critical praise, and many have won awards both in the UK and the USA.
