Welcome to Your Daily Nerd Thing. It is time for another spotlight week. Halloween is coming soon so we are taking a look at the horror fiction podcast Alice Isn’t Dead, which also has a book coming out soon.
Alice Isn’t Dead is about a truck driver named Keisha who is looking for her wife Alice. She thought Alice was dead. Upon learning that her wife is alive Keisha gets a job with a mysterious trucking company and goes on a journey across USA to learn the truth about why Alice faked her death and where she has been. This series was the first new podcast from the Welcome to Night Vale creators outside of Night Vale. While Welcome to Night Vale always walks a line between horror and comedy, Alice Isn’t Dead is all horror.
I was not sure what to make of Alice Isn’t Dead at first. We did not know who Alice was or why Keisha was looking for her. We didn’t even know much about the narrator. The first episode features her first encounter with the Thistle Man. On the first listen I had no idea he would be the main antagonist of Season 1. He seemed like some odd one off monster and a pretty awkward place for the series to start.
We will be back tomorrow to talk a little more about Alice Isn’t Dead her on Nerditis.
