Vault 97 is a fan podcast set in Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic, atom-age inspired universe of Fallout.

The eponymous Vault 97 is a large, underground complex with two interesting details: the first is that it is a fully featured music studio and radio broadcast centre with the latest technology, and two, it has been filled with musicians, personalities and any other remaining ex-pats and civilians from Great Britain (along with those that could fake a convincing enough accent to get in).

Susan, the only remaining human member of staff, proudly and diligently hosts the entirety of station under the long-running banner of WVR, West Vault Radio, with her team of robots and automated programming subroutines.

Why is Susan the only remaining Human? How does she survive through the loneliness and depression of being underground? How are the tea reserves still plentiful?

Find out all this and more from WVR, broadcasting today for a brighter tomorrow!

Vault 97 written and performed by Laura Manwell.

    “In these troubling times I would like to reassure our listeners that we here at WVR are playing our part in ensuring we adhere to “government” guidelines by maintaining strong social distancing principles. As such we have temporarily suspended our quest for that second rate DJ Mary and are working from home in Vault 97.

Quoctopus ,

So pleased to see this had more episodes

I discovered this show through Old World Radio - Boston on Fallout 4 and just loved how good the show is and funny. I was so pleased when I found the website (by actually reading the mod description properly) and then this podcast from that. Now I can finally hear more episodes of the show and I highly recommend it to new listeners too. It feels so authentic to the Fallout lore so it's great to listen to while playing (but obviously you can listen any other time too).

I know everyone involved is busy with real life at the moment (which I completely understand from personal experience) but I completely recommend subscribing and listening to the current episodes anyway and I look forward to whatever the future may bring from WVR!

Great Podcast

Found this Podcast through the Fallout 4 Old World Radio Mod. Absolutely love this show, it's charming and funny with great effects and storytelling. It's a great listen if you're playing Fallout 4 or just taking a walk through town. 10/10

You won't "Fallout" with this podcast!

This podcast deserves lots of lovely reviews because it so good, and the hosts deserve a big sloppy kiss as a thank you. Seriously though, a lot of work clearly goes into this podcast. It's well worth a listen.

So there! Have a good review because I'm brilliant.

If you like Fallout, listen to this!
