Good, but complex

This story has multiple main characters and groups with many intersecting threads—but a lack of deep character development makes it difficult to keep up with who those characters are and how they relate, keeping this enjoyable tale from being great.

Inaccurate, boring, childish.

This screams of “teen read”
What drives me crazy is that the apocalyptic event happened 15 years ago to the time of the podcast but even adults refer to tech or stuff as if generations have passed by. Like 100 years or so, “big bang” assuming they mean nuclear. As if those adults wouldn’t have told the children growing up what it was. All in all it’s poorly written imo, will continue to listen as I’m no quitter but rating won’t change.

Terrible Acting, Music

A few actors are just okay, but the rest are obviously reading their lines. The music is totally dorky and doesn’t fit the vibe at all. The plot is difficult to follow.
