Audio Drama Sunday: The Deep Vault

On a scale of 1-10, how claustrophobic are you? Killer robot-ophobic? Generally afraid of dying in a post-apocalyptic wasteland in an underground bunker that was supposed to be the salvation of humanity, but is instead a cavalcade of horrors and nightmares? If the serious answer is above like a 3 for the last one, here and now in the real world, you presumably live in a war zone or own a bunker yourself. If that's not the case, and you'd like to find out how it works out for our intrepid- heroes(?), survivors(?), poor souls(?)- well, people, Alex, Carson, and Jeremy, then welcome to The Deep Vault.

Audio Drama Sunday: It Makes A Sound

Everyone, I think, has some piece of music that sticks with them from when they were kids. It could be a song that you remember hearing on the radio, a concert that you saw, some little song someone close to you would sing; something which stays with you over the years, and takes on an outsized status in your memory as the music of your childhood. For Dierdre Gardner, it's the music of Wim Faros, a local prodigy, who played at a birthday party in a golf club. #rememberwimfaros

Audio Drama Sunday: The Behemoth

Quick question, don't think about it: a literal giant with tree branches growing out of his head appears out of the water, and do you: A) run screaming at the horror of a literal giant appearing out of the ocean, you knew there were monsters in there, you just knew it; B) check the news to see how the military is going to take care of this, it's what they do, isn't it? It is, isn't it? or C) follow him and eventually hitch a ride on his shoulder to see if he does stuff or is just on the longest mission to get nibbles on the other side of the country? ...Madyson picks C, because that's the obvious answer. Welcome to the world of The Behemoth, the first audio drama published by the now prolific Rick Coste of Modern Audio Drama.

Audio Drama Sunday: Creedence Clearwater Revival Hour

Do you need someone to take you to church? Do you need a pastor in your life? Do you need the "good book" to guide your way? Do you know what the "good book" is?

Audio Drama Sunday: We’re Alive

Like many people, "We're Alive" was one of the first audio dramas that I listened to when I delved into the new (to me) world of television for the ears. Early on in my listening experience, I was hooked by the depth and execution of the foley work, the realism of the characters' choices, and how Kc Wayland managed to bring a new and believable villain to the world of zombies. "We're Alive," in a lot of ways, is better than shows like "The Walking Dead," a powerhouse of the zombie genre...

Audio Drama Sunday: The Bunker

Quick question: if you were stuck in the far future post-apocalypse, still had a mid to late 20th century radio for some reason, and needed to reminisce about the before-times, where would you turn to?  The Bunker, obviously!  Hosted by some of the most ancient beings to walk (under) (part of) the Earth, The Bunker…
