Publisher's summary

Dying is easy. It’s the Apocalypse that’s hard. Before the outside world devolved into a fiery pit of hell, Noel and Julia hosted a successful and wonderfully pretentious community radio show. Now their basement studio is their survival bunker, and they find themselves completely alone. With no escape and nothing left except an increasingly eclectic selection of questionable records, Noel and Julia proudly debut their new show: Is Anyone Alive Out There?. How could they create a stellar show when they really just need to survive? How could they possibly find guests for their show under these circumstances? In this musical, the two hosts navigate life without food, water, resources, comforts, and other people. As the absurdity grows and the situation becomes dire, Noel and Julia realize that if the heat doesn’t kill them, their own passive-aggressiveness will.

Insanity

I knew I was signing up for something dark when I downloaded this, but didn’t know I was signing up for something completely insane. The creators of this program clearly put a lot of work into it, but unless you wanna take a trip to Crazy Town I suggest you skip this one. This is a terrible program to try to fall asleep to, you’ll have to actually set aside some time to listen to this one if you really wanna give this a shot, I don’t know what else to say other than that, I’ll let the audience decide whether they think this is a valuable unique piece of art, Or a total piece of crap waste of time for everyone involved.

Brilliant fun

Noel and Julia are a tremendously talented duo who bring the fun script to life. Their singing is superb and the musical parodies are brilliant. This was a delight from beginning to end.

Funny but that great. Waste of 1 credit.

It is quite short compared to most books/stories, it slapstick humor which wears out quickly. Probably good for a few people but not most.
