“We’re Alive” Zooms up the Zune Charts


Modern Myth Productions proudly announced via Facebook that their production “We’re Alive”; a story of survival in a zombie infested world, is burning up the charts on Zune. This fine audio drama production is now the fourth most downloaded podcast in the Zune Marketplace. Congratulations to the entire cast and crew for this accomplishment!

Not only is this is a great achievement for Modern Myth Productions, its a great achievement for audio drama as a whole. Along with Decoder Ring Theatre’s notoriety on Twitter and Fred Greenhalgh’s Wall Street Journal article, it seems as though modern audio drama is slowly creeping into the mainstream consciousness. Is this wave of notoriety a sign of bigger things to come, or is it just another flash in the pan? We would love to hear what our readers have to say…
