In 1972 the WUHN radio station out of Peoria Illinois did something most radio stations had stopped doing long ago, they put on a live radio drama – the Peoria Plague. With its roots in Night of the Living Dead and War of the Worlds, it is a piece that has truly stood the test of time to become one of the great dramas in radio history…and yet most people have not heard of it. There are no original copies to be found, just copies of a copy of a copy that survive in the public domain. But that doesn’t stop Producer Lisa this week as she goes hunting Zombies with the help of Conspiracy Bot while Brent and John have the week off. Will C-Bot try and poison her? Does an old timey audio drama still hold up to this day? Will you even miss Brent and John? Find out next on the podcast that loves zombies and producers that give the hosts the week off – Hysteria 51.
