Past visions of the Future

This is pretty much what you'd expect from a 1950s scifi radio drama- lots of ponderous speechifications by the characters about the nature of man and life and what it means to be human.
After apocalyptic nuclear war in 1991 drenches the surface of the Earth in radiation, humanity goes underground for over 2000 years, paying very close attention to genetically optimal breeding. Apparently in our underground oasis in the year 4195, we will be using rotary phones and operators to connect calls and people will talk like Ward and June Cleaver but a fun story nonetheless. Interesting take on evolution (though its not referred to as such) but I am not sure the science holds up.
