We're Alive - A "Zombie" Story of Survival

Reviews For We're Alive - A "Zombie" Story of Survival

I was put on by my sister and was wowed the whole time while listening... Please keep coming out with more stories!!!
Super great. Entertaining, voice acting is convincing, writing is very good. Overall great story and LOTS of content! It’s the equivalent to a set of professional audio book novels. Good characters and interesting story arcs. Bravo
This podcast has been in my family for years! Ever since the first time I listened to it, I’ve been hooked!! The audio and voice actors are phenomenal and I would 100% recommend this to everyone out there (I would like to reemphasize; how is something this good, not world famous?!)
“We’re ALIVE!”, ‘A Story of Survival - I have intentionally not gone into the actual storyline/plot, because I did not want it to bias you, before you get the opportunity to submerge yourself into the storyline. Honestly, the BEST Podcast, Audio Play, Audio Book, Radio Teleplay, whatever you want to call it, I call it EXCELLENT! My very first exposure to Radio Teleplays was back in 6th Grade, in the early 1980’s, all Thanks (and I do mean Thanks!), to an eclectic English Teacher by the name of Wallie Jones, who inspired his students to read, and in class played Radio Teleplays by incredible authors like Ray Bradburry, and George Orwell...War of the World’s, 1894, and Fahrenheit 452°! Even after listening to those and many more Audio Books, etc., the “We’re ALIVE!” Theatre of the Mind, Series, is the single BEST AUDIO EXPERIENCE I have ever listened to, EVER! It was so good that just now, I finished listening to the ENTIRE Series for the 2nd time! Listen, then re-listen a few years later, and likely, just like me, You will still be incredibly impressed by the INCREDIBLE QUALITY of the Audio experience! I’m an aspiring Author, but after listening to this audio series it makes me question my own ability to write a story. The rich character details, true to life reactions and personalities, the in depth individual backstories, the intertwined and complex personal relationships of each character be they a main character or existing for all of two minutes, is just awe inspiring. Especially, when you add to that, the fact that the entire plot stretches out for miles and miles, and yet, you would never guess that’s the case when listening, because it is NON-STOP ACTION! Even things as simple as the foley/Sound Effects are right on point and are both Amazing and Further the story, while making it all feel so “LIVE”, “RIGHT NOW!”, and “REAL!” This story simply put, draws you in deeper and further than you realize, and the characters both good and bad, and even unexpected, all serve to make you even more addicted to asking, “Good Lord, What the Heck is NEXT?!” and You genuinely end up caring deeply for so many of the characters featured. It doesn’t matter if your morale compass leans towards Heros! or the Under Dog, the Damsel in Distress, or the True Love Story, this story series HAS IT ALL AND EVEN MORE THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE!! You’ll soon realize that You’ve become a “We’re ALIVE!!” Podcast Story Addict, too!! If You could only ever listen to ONE, SINGLE, Podcast, Audio Book, Radio Tele-Olay, whatever, then I would highly recommend that THIS PODCAST STORY be the one you select! And I’d be willing to bet real money, that You wouldn’t regret it for an instant! So, Kick Back with a great sandwich or snack, a soda, and be prepared to become transported through an entirely amazing audio experience!...and I truly hope that You ENJOY the “We’re ALIVE” series, as much as I have and continue to still enjoy it! Then like me, You too will be anxiously awaiting the “We’re ALIVE, GOLD RUSH” and/or “WE’re ALIVE, FRONTIER” versions of the show..☝️😁
Randomly came upon this audio theater podcast, because I usually listen to true crimes podcasts, and needed a change. I’ve been listening to We’re Alive nonstop! Love the characters and the actors portraying them. You really get attached to the characters! I noticed the last activity was in 2016, so I’m sad once I listen to everything on this podcast.
Love listening to this at work! Keep it up!
I didn’t know what to listen to while at work until my coworker told me about this podcast. Once I listen to it I felt a connection to the characters. I was so sad the podcast ended but was also disappointed that my favorite characters was killed off. This podcast was so good I finish it within 3 weeks. I’m hoping the producers of were alive make another podcast like this one.
I have been listening to podcast for years and I have yet to find any audio drama remotely close to as good as this one . We need more!!!!!!!!! Please
I haven’t found a podcast yet that I have enjoyed more than We’re Alive!

I’ve listened to this show twice and I’ve noticed the little details that follow throughout the story. It has a phenomenal cast, gripping story, and sets a high bar for radio dramas.
The way the story is written and told is amazing! You really feel like you’ve gone to another world through the headphones. I highly recommend if you like action, zombies and to feel like you are constantly on the edge.
This was one of the first shows I binged upon discovering podcasts, the biggest downside of this is that Were alive has ruined me for most podcasts that followed. This series had me wearing my headphones for about 14 hours a day and kept me up at night as I could not stop listening. Each episode was so captivating and enthralling, I found myself unable to not listen to the next as soon as it ended. Even listening around the clock (literally) it still took me several weeks to finish... once I did, I had lockdown to continue feeding my addiction. I anxiously await Goldrush and check the website often in hopes of learning the release date.
This show is better than the Walking Dead. Character, story, and ZOMBIES. I just hope that this goes more than Podcast, TV maybe?
I really wish these people would continue making mini series of this show, I enjoyed every character, I laughed and cried with them. I was really looking foreword to the gold rush series, and I still am, provided that they are still making it.
I binge listened every chance I got. Now i’m sad because I’ve listened to all the episodes. :(
By far my favorite podcast to listen to! The sounds and flow of the plot make it so easy to create a story in my mind! Never have I cried during a podcast too. Dang.
Absolutely Obsessed with this podcast I drive otr a lot and this keeps me very engaged and ready for the next chapter love the characters and storyline keep up the great work!!!!
Awesome story plot
Post apocalyptic goodness.
I’m only on chapter 6, but so far the women in this show are useless and extremely annoying. For the most part they aren’t realistic either. I know women who sometimes act like this, but they’re mostly on reality tv. I wish they would have written better female characters for us to enjoy. I mean, in the episode I’m currently listening to, one of the main characters says, oh my gosh I can’t wait to use my straightener, my hair has been a mess for the past few days. After she just went on a difficult excursion where they barely escaped with their lives. Just awful. However, the show is exciting enough that I will continue listening, and if my issue gets better I’ll write another more positive review.
This is the most awesome drama I’ve ever heard!! This would be an epic zombie game series! Left for Dead?? Look out! A new saga reigns!! Pls consider turning into a video game!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Btw when you guys coming back?? Keep up the awesomeness 😉👍🏼
I found out about this podcast through Geek & Sundry’s We’re Alive: Frontier. This story keeps you on the edge of your seat. Everything from the voice actors, the storyline, to even the sound track keeps this stellar story moving forward and biting your nails wondering what happens next. It’s been fun discovering the context of We’re Alive: Frontier. Definitely recommend this podcast.
This podcast is by far the best audio drama available. I have listened to it 3 times over the past 2 years and have started it for a 4th time now. I can’t wait for more stories! Keep up the great work.
I've listened to this series multiple times as its very entertaining. Its especially great when traveling when stuck in airports or just need to keep your mind entertained (sometimes audible just doesn't cut it). If your a Sci Fi fan or Walking Dead fan this is a must listen to!! Wish there were more Pod Cast/Radio Dramas like this!!
2018 & I still listen to this. Would love to see this on Netflix.
I’ve been listening over and over again to this extremely engrossing podcast. There are no words to describe how excellent the storyline, the voice actors, the engineers, the directors and producers of the show are! It was this show and the leviathan Chronicles podcast that has transformed my life. I am now a full-blown podcast listener and I am so thankful for this medium of entertainment. I’ll look forward to all of the work that KC Wayland Will be producing in the future. Thank you so much for this amazing piece of work!
Not only is this show one of the best produced audiodramas, it sets an almost unattainable level of entertainment of which all other similar shows will be judged. Nothing short of amazing. Download the audiobooks, more than worth it.
Awesome audio drama, worth the download of every episode
I have listened to 1,000nds of podcast and this is still by far the best one ever. It was one of my first ones that I heard, so it spoiled me. But I have re- listened to it 3 times. Great job. Please make more!!!!!
I don’t normally leave reviews but I had to for this one. I work in an office to where I can’t read while I work like I could at a call center. When researching podcasts to listen to, I wanted something fictional that was of the thriller variety. I’ve tried audiobooks & I just can’t do those b/c usually it’s read in manner that’s drab & dull. This is unique in the sense that it’s not someone just reading a book to you... you’re living through these characters conversations, thoughts, & the background ambience is a wonderful touch that keeps the pace of what’s happening. I hate one character in particular but since I’m only 10 chapters in, I hope to see how that particular character evolves, hopefully for the better. I’ve been shocked, saddened, angry, & impressed all at once by one scene. I was completely hooked by the end of the very first podcast and I’m binging on it at work. Keep up the awesome work guys!
The story is great but the ads are the start and end of each episode is distracting, loud, cheap in nature. Why do I want to keep hearing an ad about viagra???
But I saturated my life with “We’re Alive” the past week. I admittedly don’t like too many zombie stories lately, but the characters in the story & intricacies of the zombies kept me hooked. Was bummed to only find a few episodes of “Lockdown” but still very much appreciate, & enjoyed, every emotion this podcast brought me. I’m also admittedly a podcast junkie, & listen to mostly non-fiction, but have listened to a decent amount of fiction..this is one of the first podcasts that has actually made me cry. I don’t know what that says about me, but it’s part of my further admission of loving this podcast. Thank you for being a podcast with a good story, characters, plot, & actually good acting. :)
Best podcast I ever heard. I’m trying to find similar ones like this but I can’t find not one! I went on a binge listening to every episode and was very please.
Absolutely amazing. Characters were great, plot was great, the whole thing was amazing! More please!
Still my favorite podcast ever. I’ve listened to it all twice so far and I can’t wait to find out what else Wayland Productions has in store.
This is a must listen podcast
Zombie narrative podcasts all ended with the last episode of We're Alive. Nothing will ever come close
Listen to this whole series atleast 4 times. Really great.
Great story, Excellent podcast
I am a podcast junkie and I am very lax about writing reviews, but I had to take the time to figure out how I could rave about "We're Alive...." I tend towards listening to a lot of crime podcasts, but I do love a good episodic, and I don't think I've ever listened to one better than this! I have listened to "We're Alive..." all the way through twice. I never listen to anything twice. But "We're Alive" truly takes me away. The acting, the story, the sound effects are all just amazing, you are simply transported to another place, and it is as gripping and addicting as any movie or book I've ever read. I absolutely love this podcast and I wish there was more!!
This has been one of the best things I have ever listened to. I normal read creepy pastas for my story time kicks, but just so happens to find this and absolutely fell in love with it!!!! Can’t stop listening I need to know what happens next! And the voice actors are the best!!


Best zombie story of all!
Let me start out by saying I’m happy I found this after the series was complete. I can’t imagine waiting a week to hear the next chapter. Also, I am the kind of person who struggles with follow through and I’m not really inclined to listen/watch/read stories of this type but this is just AMAZING. The actors are fantastic, the effects put you in the story and just when you think theyve got everything in the bag a whole new twist comes. I wish it was longer. At no point did anything seem dragged out or unnecessary. This story is one I recommend to everyone I know because it is simply addicting. I promise you will find nothing like it. I would give it 6/5 if I could. I haven’t listened to anything else since I started this podcast, and with only 3 chapters left... I might just have to start it over again because I can’t imagine anything coming even close to matching it.
One of most annoying per peeves is people talking with their mouth full. It is distracting and disgusting. So many times i had to mute or skip forward. Otherwise good story and audio effects.
This is my second time hearing this.. and i must say, it’s amazing and i do hope they come out with another one soon
Have I missed something? What happened to We're Alive: Gold Rush? It's been almost two years now since it was announced. Was it cancelled?
Used to hate zombies in general, found them boring and overused. Stumbled across this and grew hooked thanks to the levels of detail, acting, and storytelling.
The story is amazing once you listen you can’t stop. Please hurry with the next stories.
Best zombie story period. I think wayland productions needs to do other audio podcast stories. I would buy every one. The characters have so much more story left to tell.
Loved it. The characters and story are great.
