The Cleansed – Season 1 – Episode 3

Cleansed Post Apocalyptic Podcast Chapter 11

Episode artwork by Simon Adams

Dawn is a dim glow on the horizon of the Refuge when savage cries echo from the horizon. Moments later, the chalky rain-starved land turns into an inferno that David and his motley survivors must stop at all costs. Further down the river, Prophet collapses into a heap and Luke runs off looking for help. As Prophet flits in and out of consciousness, he pushes Maria to make a decision that will change the path of everything to come.

In the Republic, the fanfare of C-Day is over and Lucian, ever the loyal worker, heads back down for another day at the slag pits… But something’s not right. Saul plays a dangerous game, charming the Republic’s High Council and eeking secrets from the young boy Zeke.
