The Cleansed is a free post-oil apocalyptic drama podcast set fifteen years after the depletion of the world’s oil reserves and the massive unrest that followed. It follows the story of John Prophet, an ex-soldier who has never given up the fight, as he tries to rally a force to fight the totalitarian “New Republic” whose oppressive forces shadow old New York. John’s journey takes him to rural Maine, where two youths who have grown up in an off-grid Refuge are the only ones willing to heed his desperate warnings. With trouble on their heels, the three set off on an uncertain path fraught with grim survivalists, rugged individuals, religious maniacs and dangers of nature that have grown up in this strange land.
This lush “mind movie” features over 30 actors, was recorded on locations through Southern Maine and features an original score and the production talents of award-winning producer Fred Greenhalgh (winner of Mark Time and Ogle Awards for audio drama). Called “epic” by BBC Radio 4 Producer by John Dryden and “At the forefront of the American scene” by Irish playwright Roger Gregg.
