Join me AlongTheWay! Most of my favorite moments in life are ones that happen “Along The Way”. They weren’t necessarily planned or even expected but they are moments along the way in everyday life that have helped me grow and learn to be more like Jesus in my life. I always enjoy meeting interesting people and I try to learn something from everyone that I can. For the past several years I have been a TV producer working on a program where I have the privilege to interact with fascinating guests. The goal of this podcast is to share some of those great “Along The Way moments with you as I catalog them and learn from them myself. My inspiration to call this podcast “AlongTheWay” comes from Luke 24:32 “Didn’t our hearts burn within us “Along The Way” as he was revealing the scriptures to us?”http://alongtheway.media

Welcome to West Vault Radio

Vault 97 is a fan podcast set in Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic, atom-age inspired universe of Fallout. The eponymous Vault 97 is a large, underground complex with two interesting details: the first is that it is a fully featured music studio and radio broadcast centre with the latest technology, and two, it has been filled with musicians, personalities and any other remaining ex-pats and civilians from Great Britain (along with those that could fake a convincing enough accent to get in). Susan, the only remaining human member of staff, proudly and diligently hosts the entirety of station under the long-running banner of WVR, West Vault Radio, with her team of robots and automated programming subroutines. Why is Susan the only remaining Human? How does she survive through the loneliness and depression of being underground? How are the tea reserves still plentiful? Find out all this and more from WVR, broadcasting today for a brighter tomorrow! Vault 97 written and performed by Laura Manwell. Music/Sound design, visual design and narration by Luke Highet.
