Our mission is to introduce you to great Post Apocalyptic news and media in the form of announcements, trailers, and reviews of all the latest movies, TV shows, games, books, events… pretty much anything post-apocalyptic that we dig. And some stuff we don’t dig.
On a few topics that we really get into, you can expect in-depth analysis. That includes current shows like Game of Thrones and Adventure Time and The 100 and The Walking Dead and Colony.. (The list goes on. We watch a LOT of TV.) But also some series that aren’t new but are still important in this genre. It has never been easier to dig into the classics – and we intend to do just that.
Do you only write about the Post Apocalyptic genre?
Mostly. But we also include a select few from the pre apocalyptic genre as well. Pretty much anything involving species survival, mass extinction, or the-end-of-the-world. We chose to do this because drawing the distinction between the two can get complicated. Take, for instance, Terminator 1, 2, 3 and Genisys. Do they take place in the pre-apocalyptic world where the future apocalypse is certain, or do they take place in a post-apocalyptic world where time travel is being used as a tactical maneuver?
This is a genre with some of the best, most outside the box creators. We get every shade of that complication from shows like Adventure Time which occur a long time after but before mankind has recovered, to 12 Monkeys which is 50% Post and 50% Pre, to Ender’s Game where mankind didn’t exactly shatter, but is seriously shaken.
Some series get to the post-apocalypse, but introduce you to lead characters first. So here is our rule: If it looks like the fabric of society is or will soon be unraveling – we might write about it.
We also write about being prepared for the bomb. Survival and prepping and being self-sufficient. Because knowing is half the battle. And it might all come crashing down someday.
How do you make money?
Mostly from the advertisements we show from Google and Amazon. If one of our Amazon affiliate products looks like something good – just go ahead and buy it. You know you want to. It’ll help us pay the bills. That is because Amazon gives us a percentage as a referral. So go to town. It’ll help us stay afloat. Seriously.
Who Started This?
Derek and Stephanie Dwilson are licensed attorneys in the state of Texas. In 2014, they realized that something big was going on in the genre of post apocalyptic. It was exploding with great new content. Because they love that genre, this made them very happy. But what didn’t make them happy was that sometimes they missed out on great PA stuff. So they started Post Apocalyptic Media as a way to help themselves and the community keep up with the best media in the genre.
Derek and Stephanie met in law school at the University of Texas and married shortly thereafter.
