The Behemoth emerges from the Atlantic ocean and makes its way across the United States.  What does this mean for the existing sentient inhabitants?

I found out about The Cleansed back in 2012, as creator Fred Greenhalgh was also the host of Radio Drama Revival, a podcast I was listening to religiously. As a big fan of We’re Alive I only needed to hear the words “post-apocalyptic audio drama” and I was all in. I certainly enjoyed the first two seasons, and…
