Highly recommended

     For the exceptional script, acting, and production quality, We’re Alive is the gold standard of modern audio drama.  I started listening a couple of weeks ago, and if I had the time I would spend hours each day until reaching the end. As it is, I’ve gotten through 12 episodes and love every second of it.
The premise of the show is survival of a small group in Los Angeles during a zombie apocalypse. Characters come and go through the course of the show and you don’t know who might die without warning.
     Presented in a staggering 139 episodes starting in May of 2009, the final episode came on 29 July 2014. The show is professionally done in a real sound studio with a full cast of actors. Strangely, though it’s an audio drama, the show is listed on as a TV show. There, you can find the full cast listed, many of whom you may recognize from film, television, and theater.
     If you don’t like zombie movies, let me assure you that this is not a gore-fest. I don’t even consider it horror. This is drama. This is suspense. This is story-telling at its finest.
