Kintsugi68 ,

Gripping!!

As an avid fan of apocalyptic/post apocalyptic fiction, this was a gem!! Great plot, wonderful voice characterizations and (mostly) believable interactions. I never liked audiobooks because I found them slow and the narration annoying …but an immersive podcast? I’m hooked!

Binge Worth Post-APOC ,

GRIPPING! Binge worthy!

Great story! LOOOOVE the attention to sound and voices playing characters! This is where old time Tasso stories and Hollywood movies intertwine for an amazing story experience.

UREALvsTM ,

Apple TV worthy show.

This podcast is worthy of being turned into a live action short series.

Things escalated pretty quickly in season 1 but there’s enough to keep you interested in the lore.

Sound design, actors and story are all top notch

Literally no clue why people would give this show a low score.
