2 best audio dramas that exist

First season is worth a skip. Second season starts out awesome, but halfway through it turns into this substandard police drama with AI thrown in. Not my cup of tea personally. Was perfectly content exploring the dynamic of the protagonist and the existence of his AI ghost wife. I found most of...Read full review »

From the very first episode, which I started off a whim, I was hooked. The voice acting, the story, the music, everything came together to create a unique experience that I won’t forget. Very relevant to our current times, and incredibly thought-provoking, this podcast series sets a high bar and...Read full review »

Have listened to probably 30+ audio drama series like this one, these ones stand out. The Message has a very original idea. Please, to the writer of these stories, keep going!!

This should be made into a movie! The plot twist was awesome!
FarmGirl 2015 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/21
My favorite podcast today next to the Black Tapes! Both stories were solid though "After Life after" was the better of the 2 imo. It would be great to see these stories on the screen as well!Read full review »

Just finished both of these podcasts. Separate seasons, stand alone stories. I thought they were fantastic, enthralling, great voice acting, I really felt like I could put myself into the stories. For anyone into amazing sci-if stories, I recommend. The Message is a short season, short episodes....Read full review »

S1 (The Message) makes good fun of lots of the most used toys of the Fiction Podcast medium ... found tapes, the investigative journalism tripe, horror ... and one of the best but most underutilized tropes of the medium ... a special sound experience. But ultimately, S1 ends up feeling kind of...Read full review »

Intelligent drama, well-produced, with an intriguing plot. Highly enjoyable.
Doofus UK via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/15/20
I tried to like it. Three episodes in and still not interesting. Sad as I was excited about it.
Lolachek via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/29/20
Season 2 actually stands on its own. It was completely engaging and thought provoking and scary in a “this could actually happen” kind of way. Binged it in a day, I wish there were more like this.
GinamarieSLP via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/28/20
Thank you for making this. Very well acted and character engaging. Please make more podcasts of this quality. We all need more escapism.
Tindrop via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/18/20
So I binge The Message in a couple hours, grind your some schoolwork that *should* be in person, but alas: quarantine. So I look forward to listening to Life After, hoping it is a sequel. Once the plot starts I'm a bit disappointed. While it is clear they are in the same universe, they...Read full review »

All I can say is wow. I just happened to stumble on this yesterday and once I started it, I was hooked. Binged the first 10 episodes at work. The cast is amazing. The dialogue is very natural and the sound design is spectacular. I have listened to many audio dramas, and this one is by far the...Read full review »

Both seasons start off a little slow but it’s important to stick with it because the story telling is super impressive. Both stories are interesting and I cried at the end of Season 2. Super great twists that left my mouth open. Recommend if you enjoy sci fi.
lillyofthealley via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/11/20
All the awards go to these two, I still relisten every few months. These are short and have clear, beautiful endings and amazing stories with rich characters. I keep checking if a new podcast will come in 😭
meowholmes via Apple Podcasts · India · 10/05/20
I’ve listened to quite a few podcasts and this one is outstanding. Other podcasts dialogs are stented and poorly executed, this one sounds natural and well done. The plot drew me in and I enjoyed every second of it good job guys.
red foz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/20
I can’t understand a LOT of the words because it seems like the casts are sped. Idk if it’s just my phone but I wouldn’t understand why that would be. Has anyone else experienced this? I like the plot so I’ll rate it well but the acting is very high school drama.
Tiphanie* via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/03/20
Season 1- I really didn’t like it. The main character was really annoying and the whole love plot between Ty and what’s her name was unneeded. I really only liked the character Mod, but he didn’t really play a huge part. Season 2- I liked this one more. The concept is really cool. Idk not great.
LokiIsMortal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/25/20
TLDR; S1 is Amazing & the reason for the 5 star review. S2 is more of a 3/4 star from me, ‘cause I just didn’t really like most of the characters. ((5 stars are also for the fact that neither season has a long intro/outro, so listening to them back to back can be done without...Read full review »
LadyCravenheart via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/20
Incredible, best fiction podcast I’ve listen to thus far. Very very well written, super clever plot. Really well produced. Just soo much fun to listen to! Highly recommend As for “the message” I wonder if any of that science if it was real could be applied to COVID-19? Anyways that was...Read full review »
Lavaspit4 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/20
LifeAfter is probably the best audio-drama I’ve ever listened to. The production value, story and cast are all so good and I just couldn’t stop listening and thinking about it afterwards. You have to listen to this story, truly game changing. The Message is just completely different. The...Read full review »

I enjoyed The Message but I freaking loved LifeAfter. Oh my gosh, that last episode!!! It was so stressful I actually had to pause it a few times. Characters were fantastic, writing was superb. Absolutely outstanding. Can’t praise it enough! More please.

FeeFiFo Hum via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/21/20
The premise was great, presenting the fear (both the realistic and the irrational) of AI in a very relatable manner. Similar to an evil overlords situation. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The settings leave something to be desired, like, “Hey, we’ve got a great plot, it’ll carry the show, bring life to the...Read full review »

I listen to podcasts a lot at work, this series was amazing from start to end, and then life after, let’s just say if I could have been at the edge of my seat in the final episodes I would have been

I loved the story, Please make another one.

Very cool story! Loved it very much.
Ballgard via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/29/20
This podcast is one of the most captivating podcasts I’ve ever listened to. It’s filled with twist and turns that I loved. I could not stop listening to this podcast.
avenger kid number 5 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/20
The is about "The Message." - First of all, new audio sci-fi is always welcome. "Radio" drama, as it was known in the old days, engages the mind's eye in a way that visually told stories just can't. "The Message" succeeds very well at creating a believable...Read full review »

This is by far my favorite podcast I’ve ever listened to. The plot and characters of both the message and LifeAfter kept me feeling so many emotions and I just couldn’t resist listening to the next episode. Really would love for more seasons to build on the universe created here. Amazing work!
That_one_furry via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/27/20
Let me admit that I did start out listening to The Message but I got impatient and gave up. But, after reading other reviews talking about how LifeAfter is a whole different story. So I decided to skip The Message and I dove back in and was hooked before the first episode was over! While I’m sure...Read full review »

I loved Life After especially. I chuckled hard listening to After Life After when they say that the goal is to make a podcast to distract someone from realizing how terrible they feel on a treadmill because that’s exactly what this podcast did for me! Loved The Message and looked forward to my...Read full review »

I heard it will get exciting from the halfway point but the first few episodes are slightly too boring
Volgende x beter via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 02/27/20
Both seasons reminded me of the show “Black mirror” in that it takes you to a world where the dark side of technology is brought to light. Interesting and unique story lines, that are very much worth your time.
Thutch6 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/20
It really got you thinking. Like the black mirror of podcasts.

Oh wow! The Message & Life After - binged in a day. Great premise, wanted to know what was happening at the end of each episode so had to binge! More, more, more please 🙏🙏🙏🙏
Gracies mum via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/19/20
Why do people want to hear about an unrelatable, annoying weak person involved in a not at all interesting 'plot' in which nothing actually happens? I don't know either. Had to listen to this on a road trip and it was annoying, and filled iwth nohing anyone needs.Read full review »

This series offers twists and turns that keep you hooked. The two seasons have different storylines which were both interesting. I liked the second season more and it was pretty scary to see where tech can reach.
xonursej via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/12/20
I’m not going to include any spoilers. It’s weird that they are considered to be season 1 and season 2, because there are no obvious ties between them. Maybe the connection is they both have to do with audio files. And while there is one element used in both seasons, it is only barely mentioned...Read full review »

Season 1 Message was very good. Season 2 life After was the best Audio Drama ever!! Do yourself a favor and listen
Hughjasole via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/09/20
Loved these sci-fi audio dramas! Even went back for a second listen since I blew through them so fast!
Fungamethisisyup via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/06/20
The ending is perfect! Definitely didn’t expect it
Awefdefgdc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/20
I was hooked from the very first episode and loved every minute. Great idea and story
