There is no better post-apocalyptic audio drama

There are an insane glut of post-apocalyptic audio dramas (We’re Alive, Earth Break, The Walk, Adventures in New America, The Phenomenon, Empty, Blackout, Mercury: A Broadcast of Hope). Many of them are good or fine, some of them are great, but it is fair to say it’s well-worn territory by now. And why wouldn’t it be? It’s a great setup! The post-apocalypse genre is our modern day western. And there are so many ways to do it. But Gone? Gone is the best of them. It’s technically a post-rapture story, but the familiar hallmarks are there. How to survive, how the environment has changed, what was the cause, are there others like me, plus there’s the found footage aspect. What separates Gone from the pack is the level of intimacy it manages with its central character. What separates Gone from others is that it’s central performance is genuinely strong enough to overcome the fact that the lead is mainly in dialogue with themselves. That is writing uphill when you make yourself a situation where there’s no one else to talk to, but it’s a challenge creator/writer/producer/lead Sunny Moraine is more than a match for. Many shows may start out with a lead only talking to themselves but will almost inevitably branch out to include more characters out of necessity. To keep the writing fresh. Instead, Gone just finds new and more profound ways to zoom in further and further on its lead, and it’s never a dull ride. There are few better stories about isolation anywhere in any medium. This show sets itself a high bar and it continues to reach and exceed it. It’s quality programming and it’s well worth your time. Dive in already.

Love it

Great story and great audio, except the occasional ear-splitting parts that are hard to listen to. Remember we’re in headphones!! Love the narration and story arc.
