Apollyon

4.6/5

Critic Rating

In the early 22nd century, the Apollyon virus wiped out 75% of the world’s population, and now most of the world is governed by the International Conglomerate of Research Scientists. Dr. Theo Ramsey is an ICRS research scientist who may have just discovered an effective vaccine for Apollyon, but the stakes to get the vaccine to the public are higher than she ever imagined

Michael Bergonzi • Audio Drama Reviews Jan 9, 2023

"For a show about a virus, the tropes common in the sci-fi genre with that are noticeably absent in Apollyon. Those seeking a post-apocalyptic world can find elements of the genre’s close cousin, dystopia in later events of the story in the expected capacity in hindsight. I applaud the level of detail put into this series that many science fiction podcasts gloss over. It’s ahead of its time even going into 2023. If there was a major complaint, it would be the ending doesn’t match the beginning in terms of tone. This is entirely subjective but for me, the characters are the driving force. The story ends with a plot twist that sets up the next season but doesn’t do much to wrap up the one the listener spent so much emotional time and energy in early on. Overall, a strong start with a cautiously optimistic ending for both the series and the fanbase."

"Apollyon is a great show that has some uneasy parallels with the current world, yet manages to stay focused on new ideas. It does deal with a virus, but one set in the future and with different impacts on the world. Nevertheless, it is unsettling and all too possible to relate this to the modern-day, adding additional depth to what is already a thrilling and intriguing show. Their motivations and rationales are clear, even if I question them. I’m on the edge of my seat with episodes, wondering which direction they will go and how the pieces will fall. There is no rushing the complex story they are writing, and the story has unfolded at a steady pace."
