The podcast opens with the line "this isn't a story - it's a road trip", and it's definitely not your typical "love" story, but I really struggle to think of anything that more accurately describes what it means to love, and to be loved. Whether that be romantic or otherwise. It also asks a lot of really interesting questions about humanity and the world we reside in - blending the fantastical and the mundane in a deeply thought provoking way. I listened to this podcast as it dropped, and two dozen times since, and I still find something new to love about it every time. Jasika, in particular, is phenomenal. and The Ending is one of my favourite finales of anything ever. As much as I yearn for more, I really admire a writer who knows when a roadtrip is over.
I really enjoyed this one. Creepy. I didn’t like how tidy somethings were and how some things never made sense. However, it was fun. I was invested in the characters.
This was a very interesting podcast. I liked the mini-stories of the truck driver's experiences at each stop. You really have to listen to understand what's going on or you'll miss something. Additionally, the horror feel of this story is based on building it up slowly.
I loved this mysterious travelogue around a surreal dystopian USA. Loved the music too.
Fantastic eery two first parts with episodes that reminded me to David Lynch style surrealism. Third part plummets into an action series that is not so engaging. Still, enjoyed the whole though uneven. Love the music and the fact you can listen to it at the end of each short episode. Best podcast logo.
Great podcast!!! Love the discussions it opens up and love how it encourages the listener to take action! On top of that, the acting is spectacular!
A very decent horror podcast with some nice twists and turns, can't shake the feeling that they peaked during the first episode though
This was the first audio drama I listened to, so Alice will always have a special place in my heart
Alice Isn't Dead hooked me from the end of the first episode. My ex-wife was frequently flustered with me binging episodes in the car. Now that I (finally!) have a copy of the novel, my current husband gets frustrated with me for being so absorbed in the book that I don't hear him speaking to me. The two of them are lucky this isn't a video game. AID is easily my favorite horror podcast. Jasika Nicole's voice acting is brilliant, and she brings the main character to life in a way that I don't think anyone else could. After seeing her on Fringe and hearing her on Welcome to Night Vale, she's easily becoming one of my favorite contributors to media in general. The story is uniquely crafted in a way that keeps you wanting more. Who is the Thistle Man? What happened to Alice? What's the deal with Bay & Creek? I always hated the conclusion of a season, because I had to wait before I could get more answers. Overall, this is the show I have recommended the most, over all of the audio dramas I've listened to. Night Vale Presents knocked it out of the park with WtNV, but Alice Isn't Dead is even better. I wish I could give it an extra star!
A show that is too busy sniffing its own farts.
I'm a fan of narrative shows as they really dive into the inner psyche of their characters. Many of Alice's ponderings were really intriguing to me as I too have driven all over the country. It was almost like having a conversation about the stuff I saw on all my drives - plus a lot of extra weirdness.
I listened to Alice Isn't Dead as it aired and continually revisit it as a tender, wonderful love + ghost story. The team here from top to bottom created something engrossing and engaging. Definitely listen if you haven't!
Love this podcast. Hooked from the very first. I am often employed to run storytelling/sound art/podcasting workshops and I use this as an example of a podcast that's the triple threat of being listenable, undefinable and out of the box.
There is something eerily perfect about listening to this podcast and driving alone. Highly recommend it.
By the end of part 1 I was starting to get into it, but it's messy and doesn't seem to know what it wants to be in the way night vale does, and it takes way too long to really start with the intrigue, episode 1 is more or less optional.
This is such a good podcast! Awesome voice actors and really amazing story. The best part? It keeps you on edge and it has a decent ending. It resolves itself.
Compelling basis for a story backed up by great voice acting. Bogged down by too much rambling and an ending I didn't love.
Creepy and a little weird. Held my attention.
Keisha taught me about the thistle men, now I see them everywhere.
Probably my favorite podcast from the creators of Welcome to Night Vale. And yes, by that I mean I like it more than WTNV.
