Evo’s Picks Featured Audio Fiction
These are my personal recommendations for great-sounding audio fiction. As with all things in life, YMMV.
We’re Alive — Dramatized horror thriller from Wayland Productions Inc
- Season 7 finale released 28 Mar 2023

Listen to the entire epic series, which follows Survivors in Los Angeles after the world has been turned upside down.
It begins with A Story of Survival, which spans from Chapters 1–48. Our survivors band together, fortify a safe haven known as the Tower, and discover that the Infected are far from the biggest threat they will have to face.
The adventure continues with two mini-series:
Lockdown — A small group of inmates and prison guards are trapped in the T-block at Twin Towers Jail. They are forced to work together and find a way to escape while the rest of the world ends around them.
Goldrush — Set 17 years after the main events of “A Story of Survival”, this is a recollection story that describes the efforts of the four Soldiers as they attempt a side mission to retrieve a suspected stash of gold bullion.
Our newest season is We’re Alive: Descendants — The story of survival continues; the fight is not over.
18 years after the Outbreak, the world is starting to re-organize and rebuild, but many different forms of humanity are still struggling to survive in the aftermath. Nicholas Tink grew up in the shadow of his father- the late, great, Saul Tink. Little does he know that deep in the places where infected dwell, another descendant lies waiting.
