This slickly-produced audio drama is set in the post-apocalyptic aftermath of the world as we know it. Without giving too much away, sheltered farm kids Luke and Maria meet a mysterious man from the former New York City, and are dragged into his drama: a power struggle between a sinister military force, the rebels who resist them, and a devout new cult. It soon becomes obvious that the stranger is more than he first appears, but is he a good guy or a bad guy? The ambitious narrative moves between characters and locations at the pace of a thriller, and is brought to life by theatrical sound design and more than 30 voice actors. At the time of writing, three seasons are available. Good, grim fun.
