Where the Wild Things Are.....

Thank you for the dedication at the end of the episode, it was moving and brought tears to my eyes......

Excellent work from an amateur crew

Sometimes you can tell the voices were recorded on different quality equipment. Sometimes you hear the same voice actor playing two roles in a conversation. Sometimes the sound balances to one ear or the other, so you have to listen with both your earbuds in. (That last one is more a personal problem maybe.)

None of that matters. The show is excellent. Unique, original stories, each one different from the last: a survival guide to an apocalyptic alternate history, a found-footage horror adventure, a wild jungle road trip story,a gritty political thriller, and a fractured fairy tale fantasy. If ANY of those sound up your alley, check this out. You won't be disappointed.

Top notch alternate history fiction

The setting and background for these stories are covered by other reviews. "World War Z set a few years after the American Civil War" is pretty spot on and is a great starting point to get a frame of what you're in for if you start listening to this.

I want to leave a review on the overall production quality of the podcast, the voice acting, sound editing, directing and so on. For a while I was of the mind that this was only a 4.5 on that scale, one or two occasional slips of an accent here, or a reuse of a sound byte that was used earlier in the stories or via a different context, then I stopped to realize that I was mentally comparing the New Century crew to a big budget, 'professional' audio drama.

Not to imply that these folks are not professional, far from it, but the overall polish of work had me at times thinking it was something released by a big publishing house to push something new to vie for the attention of fantasy along side a Dresden Files or Name of The Wind audio drama.

This series is worth your attention, on both a technical and a creative level.
