For Army Reserve Soldier Michael Cross, the world as he knew it ended in an instant. One minute, he's in college, and in the next, rioters are roaming the highway around him, breaking into cars, and literally tearing people apart. This is the day the dead walk. This is the world of We're Alive.
We’re Alive is an ongoing series, packing performances and sound effects that rival movies and prove that modern audio drama is undead and well. Join our survivors as they band together, struggle to fortify a safe haven known as the Tower, and discovers that zombies are far from the worst thing in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles where the rules of human decency no longer apply.
We premiere 3 New episodes a month, with a week off between chapters.
Little food. Little water. Little hope. Who is lucky enough to say "We're Alive?"
Now a Prime Original TV series. From Gimlet, Homecoming centers on a caseworker at an experimental facility, her ambitious supervisor, and a soldier eager to rejoin civilian life — presented in an enigmatic collage of telephone calls, therapy sessions, and overheard conversations. Starring Catherine Keener, Oscar Isaac, David Schwimmer, David Cross, Amy Sedaris, Michael Cera, Mercedes Ruehl, Alia Shawkat, Chris Gethard, and Spike Jonze.
Extremely polished with professional actors and sound design. A great drama that keeps you interested and compels you to find out what is really happening. Bonus that it was made into an Amazon series so it is fun to watch and compare.
From GE Podcast Theater and Panoply, The Message and its sequel, LifeAfter, take listeners on journeys to the limits of technology. In The Message, an alien transmission from decades ago becomes an urgent puzzle with life or death consequences. In LifeAfter, Ross, a low level employee at the FBI, spends his days conversing online with his wife Charlie – who died eight months ago. But the technology behind this digital resurrection leads Ross down a dangerous path that threatens his job, his own life, and maybe even the world. Winner of the Cannes Gold Lion.
One of the first podcasts I listened to that got me hooked on the medium. Two separate stories, unrelated, though both delve into the sci-fi side of things. Life After is definitely the better of the two. Production value is pretty high, and there is a little bit of everything packed in relatively short episodes.
When a supernatural threat drives mankind to the point of extinction, survivors around the globe struggle to endure in a world with just three rules:
Do not look outside. Do not look at the sky. Do not make noise.
Little bit of horror (without being too scary), little bit of sci fi. Best of both worlds with high production value and good acting. Once you get the characters down it is relatively easy to follow along.
