we’re alive

We’re Alive Season 1 by Modern Myth Productions

From Audible:

This exciting audio drama is based on an immensely popular podcast that has received hundreds of positive reviews and has had over four million downloads – and counting.


For Army Reserve soldier Michael Cross, the world as he knows it ends in an instant. One minute he’s in college, and the next rioters are roaming the highway around him, breaking into cars and literally tearing people apart. This is the day the dead walk. This is the world of We’re Alive.


The first season features 12 chapters packing performances and sound effects that rival movies and prove that modern audio drama is undead and well. Join our survivors as they band together, struggle to fortify a safe haven known as the Tower, and discover that zombies are far from the worst thing in a post apocalyptic Los Angeles, where the rules of human decency no longer apply.


Little food. Little water. Little hope. Who is lucky enough to say “We’re Alive”?

My Rating: ⭐

Having had great success with my first audiobook and having enjoyed a few podcasts last year I thought this might be a good mix of the two. In addition I usually like zombie horror stories.

I really wanted to like this but just couldn’t. At 4 hrs in I decided to cut my losses and pulled the pin. Dislikable and annoying characters, forced and wooden acting, storylines full of plot holes and a sub standard copy of “The Walking Deadjust about summed it up for me. Don’t waste your time and definitely don’t waste your money. I got this with a free credit on Audible but it costs £20 normally. I really don’t understand why it has been so popular and how it managed 5 seasons!

One of my favourite cycling blogs is SecondrateCyclist. He writes very eloquently about many cycling topics but also some non-cycling stuff that’s equally well written. In the last year he had a horrific bicycle crash and has written some brilliant posts on the accident, the mental and physical impacts and his recovery.

Recently he’s been sharing some of his favourite podcasts. Up until now I haven’t listened to podcasts and I’m really enjoying these recommendations.

The latest is called “In The Red Clay” and is definitely the best so far. I couldn’t wait to listen to the next episode and I’m really sorry to have reached the end.

I highly recommend that you give this blog a follow and give the podcasts a try 👍
