376: "Silence the Whisperers" (S10E4)

An unsettling episode this week, and in ways that can be uncomfortably true to life. Lucy and I very much enjoyed breaking it all down, and we threw in a little Comic Talk for good measure.

The consensus among you guys is that this episode was a breath of fresh sea air, and Lucy and I couldn't agree more. The Walking Dead is back, and looks to be a continuation of the excitement and renewal that Angela Kang started last season!

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

368: "Ner Tamid" (FTWD:S5E12)
01:34:03

Mazel Tov, a pretty good episode this week, about the tradition, ritual, faith, and the stresses of being on the road, with an interesting new actor, and some great zombie scenes. But don't worry, we found plenty to complain about too :)

This week Lucy and I are joined by guest cohost, longtime listener, friend, and TWD superfan Megan Dively Lehman!

367: "You're Still Here" (FTWD:S5E11)
01:24:25

Loss. Despair. Some people working through it and finding hope. Some not so much. That's FTWD. Yep. If you're reading this, you're still here, and we appreciate it :)

This week Lucy and I are joined by guest cohost Ben Beck of the Next Level Podcast Network:

Quite a few of you guys wrote in saying something like "I'm sure other people won't like this episode, but I did!" Well, turns out Cindi did too, and maybe she'll talk Lucy into it as well. (And let's just say it's a good thing Jason wasn't on this week....) Enjoy!

364: Charlie Adlard and the End of The Walking Dead Comic
01:06:57

AMC's The Walking Dead, and also this podcast, owe their existence to the Walking Dead comic, and so the sudden ending of that comic about a month ago marks a huge moment for all of us WD fans. Join Lucy, Derek, and me as we mark the occasion by talking to the one and only Charlie Adlard, illustrator of The Walking Dead comic! As illustrator, Charlie has been a crucial and enormous factor in how The Walking Dead turned out (both the comic and the show).

We talk with Charlie about:

  • His thoughts about the plot of the final issue and how things ended for all the characters.
  • Inking the final issue himself.
  • How he feels now that it’s over.
  • Keeping the fact that the book was ending a surprise, and doing fake preview covers to help with that.
  • Who was hardest and easiest to draw aged up in the final issue.
  • Whether he’s ever thought about going back and redrawing the first six issues.
  • Whether he’ll do more Walking Dead comics.
  • What's next for Charlie.
  • Plus a lot more.

Look for Charlie's next comic, Vampire State Building, in comic shops in the US on Sep 18 (and available in France now). https://www.previewsworld.com/Catalog/JUL191360

363: TWD/FTWD Trailers + Comic Con News
01:35:38

Our third annual Comic-Con and WD trailer extravaganza, and damn there was a ton of stuff that came out of Comic Con this year, a lot of it really interesting. Maybe this year I finally picked some things to talk about that'll end up being good.... Anyway, join me, Rima, and Shawn as we talk about the TWD/FTWD trailers, news, and all the pop-culture goodness that we're excited about.

 

Cnet did a great thing and put all the trailers that came out of Comic-Con on a single web page here. Highly recommend checking it out! https://www.cnet.com/news/every-comic-con-san-diego-2019-trailer-scary-stories-to-tell-in-the-dark-picard-the-witcher-rick-and-morty-cats-top-gun-it-2/

362: "Is Anybody Out There?" (FTWD:S5E8)
01:31:46

The story arc of the irradiated child-filled land beyond the mountains comes to a close, and Lucy and I actually found a lot to like about this last installment. But don't worry, we also have plenty of items for the Dept. of the Suspension of Disbelief too :)

I liked this week's episode better than last, which isn't saying much! But guest cohost Karen Fahr and I found a lot to talk about. Like all the characters on FTWD, we're here to help.

360: "The Little Prince" (FTWD:S5E6)
01:29:52

IMO this week's FTWD was one of the worst episodes of anything in the entire Walking Dead universe thus far. Stinker!! But I and guest hosts Pake and Megan make lemonade out of these sour lemons by suspending our usual habit of approaching the show from a place of appreciation and instead we have fun full-on thrashing it! (And okay, Pake and Megan actually managed to find a few good things too.) Hope you enjoy.

Note: I (Jason) am considering finishing out the half-season on this show and then just doing one FTWD-related podcast every eight episodes. Then maybe we'll pick up a different show during the TWD hiatus, or cover movies. Let me know if you have thoughts about that.

This podcast is made possible by listeners like you (and you too) who have supported us at patreon.com/jasonandkaren. As a big thank you/perk, upcoming episodes of The Jason & Karen Show will be available only to our patrons (who pledge at least $5/month). Next time we'll cover MidSommar.

359: "The End of Everything" (FTWD:S5E5)
01:15:14

Interesting episode, focused only on a couple of characters (and only one main FTWD character) and not furthering the FTWD plot along much, but definitely giving clues into an overarching TWD universe story. Lucy and I found a lot to like about this one!

356: Comic Talk (TWD #192)
38:25

As E.T. would say, ooouuuch. We couldn't let recent events in The Walking Dead comic go by without some acknowledgment and discussion on the podcast. If you're a WD comic reader, you know what I'm talking about. So here's Derek, Lucy, Shawn, and Jason to talk it out.

Jun 18, 2019
355: The Jason & Karen Show
01:01:23

Here it is, the first episode of The Jason & Karen Show. We think it's delightfully random, and fun, and it's filled with stuff we're interested in, and nothing we're not. You guys said you'd listen to us talk about anything. Here you go! :)

In this particular episode we talk about the freakin’ hilarious FX vampire comedy, What We Do in the Shadows, plus the Impossible Burger, Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland, Data-from-Star-Trek’s inability to use contractions, X-Men, our cats, the merits of death, and whether Columbine High should be torn down, among other things. Like any good potent dopamine booster, this first one is free. To hear subsequent episodes, you gotta sign up for Patreon at the $5 level or above at patreon.com/jasonandkaren. We'll have another episode out in a week or so covering the new Jim Jarmusch/Bill Murry zed movie, The Dead Don't Die (and other fun stuff).

And to get serious for a second, this podcast is a patron exclusive as a thank you to all you guys supporting our podcasting, and as a perk to get more of you on board so we can keep doing it. So if you like what we're doing and think it's worth paying a bit for, we thank you for helping us continue on!

Again, want more episodes? Or just want to help support our podcasting? Then go sign up at the $5 or higher level at patreon.com/jasonandkaren. Thank you!

PS If you're looking for our Walking Dead 'Cast episode covering FTWD S5E2, it's in the feed right before this one.

PPS Credit to Ben Beck for the idea for our Pop-Up Topic segment where we get a listener-submitted topic but we don't find out what it is until we're recording.

354: "The Hurt That Will Happen" (FTWD:S5E2)
01:39:36

Attack of the toxic zeds this week, which sounds like a much more exciting concept than it ended up being (for a lot of us anyway). Rima and Jason did find a few things to like about the episode. Enjoy!

PS You may have noticed the first episode of the Jason and Karen Show in your podcast feed. It's finally out! We had a lot of fun recording it, and playing around with different ideas. Hope you guys dig it :)

352: Season Nine Wrap-Up Crossover Pt 1
01:18:24

It's our ninth annual season wrap-up with Chris and Jason from the Talking Dead podcast, and what a pleasure it was to go over the highlights of this phenomenal season! Karen and I had a blast as usual chatting with these two gentlemen. Enjoy :)

P.S. This is just part one of the countdown, so be sure to check out part two over at talkingdeadpodcast.com.

351: Melissa Hutchison (Clementine)
01:33:05

The Walking Dead game series originally by Telltale has wrapped, and I thought the final installment, detailing the end of Clementine's story, was intense, moving, fun, scary, emotionally gripping, and just a fantastic ending for the game. So good! I'm stoked to have my friend Melissa on to talk about it. We talked about:

  • How Melissa feels now that the game is finished.
  • Details of what happened with Telltale's collapse and how the game got finished after that.
  • Behind-the-scenes info on the creation of the game.
  • New experiences for Clementine in the game, like romance, acting as a parent (a role-reversal from the first season of the game), finding out first-hand what it would be like to be a whisperer, and a lot more
  • Whether zombies still have souls?
  • What Melissa would like to see for Clementine's future.
  • Some great questions from you guys.

Plus, we cover our top three non-pop-culture-related interests (we were both happy to discover we do actually have at least three).

350: "Winterfell" (GoT:S8E1)
02:28:22
We're kicking off our coverage of the final season of Game of Thrones by cross-posting this episode of our GoT podcast, House Podcastica, here. I'm doing this mostly because a lot of you might be subscribed to our old GoT podcast, Game of Microphones, and didn't even realize we've moved, and I want as many of you as possible who want to be on board with us to be able to find us. If you want to hear the rest of our coverage for the season, you can find links to subscribe at housepodcastica.com.
 
You can also go to housepodcastica.com to find out how to enter our contest for a rare bottle of House Baratheon Royal Lochnager 12 YO whisky. Yumm! Hurry, only a few days left to enter.
 
---
 
GoT is back! The final season of our beloved show begins with a phenomenal episode, with long-desired reunions, long-secret revelations, some startlingly creepy moments, and so much to unpack! Hard to believe they fit so much into this, the shortest episode of the season.

For season 8 Jason and Kristin will be cohosting each episode together, and each week we'll be joined by a new third cohost from our amazing crew of Podcastica hosts. This week we've got the ever-charming and brilliant Lucy!

Jason's panel with John Bradley (Sam) and Hannah Murray (Gilly):

346: Matt Lintz (Henry)
20:48

A quick bonus ep for you guys, it's Matt Lintz aka Henry! As you guys all know, I've been rooting for Henry this season, and it was great to talk with Matt about his take on the character, Henry's frame of mind, and his motivations this season. I also asked him about what it's like being in a family with two other actors from The Walking Dead, and much more!

My biggest regret: I forgot to ask for his zombie sound! Okay, I'm a little rusty. Next time, I promise :)

Mar 16, 2019
345: "Chokepoint" (S9E13)
01:21:30

Beta's a badass this episode, but not as bad as Daryl and Connie (and Henry for that matter - got two or three Whisperers with that staff). Join Jason and Cindi for a fun episode talking out "Chokepoint".

Karen and I saw Zombieland together in the theater when it came out in 2009 and we loved it, and we've referenced it so much in the show that both of us thought we had already covered it! Well, finally, here's our coverage of this classic that has informed how we think and talk about zombies ever since. Plus, Karen has a bunch of TV recommendations, including her top 5 shows in recent years.

339: Top 5 TV Shows of the Last Decade
01:50:03

John Jason, Rich, and Chris (yep, it's an Evil Dead 'Cast reunion!) for our surprisingly diverse lists of top five favorite TV shows from the last 10 years. There's been an explosion of TV content in recent years, and so it was a challenge for us to come up with lists of our top five favorite shows from the last decade - so we cheated by having tons of Honorable Mentions :) Plus, some news, and your picks too.

You can of course hear more of Chris on his Walking Dead podcast at talkingdeadpodcast.com. (And like a jerk I forgot to mention that in our end section. Rude!)

337: Buster Scruggs + Spider-Verse
01:19:53

When TWD is off air, Karen and I like to podcast about some of our other favorite things, and one thing we both love is Coen Brothers movies. We rank this latest one, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (available on Netflix), right up there with the best! If you haven't seen it, you're missing out (but prepare to have your heart broken a couple of times). Intelligent, beautifully filmed, with the blackest of dark humor, the purest innocence and beauty, and everything in between. Plus, we cover news about TWD and pop culture, and talk Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse with special guest Nico Cabassi.

336: Tom Payne (Jesus)
42:26

Karen and I moderated Tom's first post-Jesus panel at Fan Fest/Walker Stalker San Jose this weekend, and it was a lot of fun. You'll hear his thoughts on whether Jesus might appear in a flashback, how to play dead, his perspective on Jesus' story arc, and much much more.

We've talked with many of the WD actors after their exit from the show, and I have to say, Tom Payne's was unlike any of them. You'll see what I mean after you hear this episode.

Enjoy!

332: "What Comes After" (S9E5)
02:16:01

I was expecting to be paying my respects to Rick Grimes this week. Was going to start the podcast off with a sad song in honor of my favorite character passing on. What an unexpected (at least for me) twist! Holy shit. I was blown away. I have mixed feelings, strong on both sides. Karen couldn't be here for this one, but we'll find out what she thinks next week. That said, I'm really glad Lucy was able to do this episode with me. And thanks for all your feedback! I knew it would be a big week for feedback :) You guys have strong feelings on both sides too. Hope you guys enjoy the podcast.

And thank you SO MUCH to all you who vote today! You're my and Karen and Lucy's heroes. Seriously. If you drag a friend to the polls, you're double the hero!

I think guest host Melissa Hutchison (Clementine of Telltale's TWD game) and I are a bit in denial this week. I mean, I think we just saw the end for our hero, but it really hasn't hit me yet. And Melissa has him on a helicopter. Join us for a fun and in-depth discussion about the ep, and a substantial edition of Comic Talk from Lucy and Derek. Bonus drinking game: Drink every time one of us says "rebar".

Join us this ep to say farewell to FTWD (for this season, and maybe forever!) and also to Lucy (definitely only for the time being - because it doesn't take a whole day to recognize sunshine).

Was this episode a delightful experiment in lightening the tone? A critical milestone in the development of Morgan's character? An introduction to some complex, layered new characters? A total mess of a failure on every level? Hmm... maybe? Happy to be joined by Kristin this week. Listen in as we talk it out!

320: "People Like Us" (FTWD:S4E9)
01:31:00

FTWD is back and I'm looking at it as if it's a new show that happens to have the same name as that old show I liked (and a couple of similar characters...). Under that lens, I thought this ep was pretty great, and Lucy liked it too. Listen in as we talk it over. Plus, our opinions on Hardwick.

Join Jason, Rima, & Shawn as we chat about Castle Rock, the Locke & Key series, Andrew Lincoln's exit from TWD, the WD S9 trailer, the FTWD S4.5 trailer, Aquaman (so dreamy), Better Call Saul, Green Lantern (comic), Shazam, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the new Buffy, Star Trek: Discovery, Doctor Who, Kevin Smith's Hollyweed, The Clone Wars, and James Gunn's firing from Guardians of the Galaxy 3.

317: Hereditary
01:15:41

Classic WDC fun this week as Jason and Karen laugh our way through a dissection of the disturbing, creepy-ass movie, Hereditary (in theaters now). We had a few complaints, but mostly we really liked this movie and recommend you check it out if you like scary movies.

We have a cool initiative brewing for some of you guys, the Podcastica Culture Club. I have some ideas, and I need your help to know where to focus, and to gauge interest. So, if you could take a minute to fill out a survey about it, I'd be grateful. It's at walkingdeadcast.com/survey. Thanks!

316: Cargo
01:27:18

To be honest, I'm a little burnt out on zombies, so we wouldn't just be covering any old zed movie during the hiatus - but Cargo, the Australian zombie movie starring Martin Freeman and a baby, based on the 7-minute short film of the same name that Karen and I covered and liked several years ago, is good! I recommend checking it out. It's available on Netflix. I think most Walking Dead fans will dig it. Then join me, Rima, and Shawn for our coverage. Plus, Rima and Shawn announce the next show they'll be covering on Strange Indeed.

I'm starting up a new initiative. I think it's going to be called the Podcastica Culture Club, and it'll have a bunch of cool perks. I have a lot of ideas, but I need your help to know where to focus, and to gauge interest. So, if you could take a minute to fill out a survey about it, I'd be grateful. It's at walkingdeadcast.com/survey. Thanks!

Time for one of my favorite WDC episodes of the year: Karen's back for our annual team-up with Chris and Jason of The Talking Dead podcast, where we count down our highlights for the latest season of TWD, in this case season 8, All Out War! It's surprising how talking out a season can make you appreciate it more.

Man, I (Jason) was really bummed by a lot of things in this episode, and you're going to hear that, but luckily Lucy is here to balance out my grieving and nitpicks with some positivity and thoughtful insight. In the meantime, let's all pour one out for you know who.

Exciting episode this week! Plot lines are coming together. Some good character development (followed by at least one of those developed characters' deaths, oh well). And it's feeling like they'll actually wrap this storyline next week, which we can't say we're not happy about... :)

310: The Cast of Fear the Walking Dead
43:42

Last weekend while Lucy and Lara were hosting the podcast (and doing an amazing job at it, I might add), I was at Walker Stalker Nashville hosting a great panel with a bunch of the cast members of FTWD, including Kevin Zegers (Mel), Daniel Sharman (Troy), Danay Garcia (Luciana), Jenna Elfman (Naomi), Colman Domingo (Strand), and Kim Dickens (Madison). It was awesome, and I'm glad to be able to present it to you now. Enjoy!

It's a Fear-the-Walking-Dead reset, and it's very different! A Morgan-centric, slower-paced, character-focused zombie Western of sorts. And we quite liked it! Join Jason and new FTWD cohost Lucy as we tell you why.

Never been so happy to hear someone, like, say a sentence.

Join Jason and guest Lucy from Scotland as we talk it out in full, complete sentences. Mostly.

296: Black Panther + Marc & Abi + Haikuing the State of TWD
01:27:44

A packed and varied episode this week, with my and Nico's reviews of Black Panther, plus the return of Marc and Abi of Issimo from the UK! The three of us talk about the current state of The Walking Dead, mostly via haiku, and also a rousing discussion of the historical place of violence in the formation of civilized society and how that relates to TWD. Plus, we answer questions that Scott Gimple asked the fans, like whether we think the show portrays people as basically good or bad, what nightmares the show has given us, and which characters we identify with the most, among others.

All that, plus a live performance of Let's Just Wait from Issimo's upcoming album, The Adventures of Issimo! You can preorder that album now by going to pledgemusic.com/projects/issimo.

Tons of Walking Dead news in this ep, and Karen and I had a lot of fun getting back to podcasting basics this week, so you should listen even if you don't care about Alfred Hitchcock movies.

275: Call-In Show
59:05

Now for something completely different!

First, we're incredibly thankful to have all you guys as listeners. You're what make doing this podcast worthwhile, so thank you guys! We're also really appreciative some of you have decided to support us on Patreon, as that's ultimately what's going to help us keep going with all this.

Each month Karen and I do a special call-in show for all Patreon contributors. For this week's episode, we're publishing this month's call publicly for the first time ever. Hopefully you dig it even if you have no intention of contributing - it's geeky people talking about geeky stuff, like TWD, GoT, and some behind-the-scenes stuff, among other things.

WARNING: There are some Game of Thrones spoilers partway through if you're not caught up - so you might want to skip past that part. You'll hear once we start talking about it.

If you'd like to take part in next month's call-in, contribute any amount at patreon.com/jasonandkaren. Cheers!

271: John Carpenter's The Thing
01:17:23


First off, this episode was recorded before the passing of George Romero, and we both want to express our condolences to his family and friends and all the fans. Let's face it, Romero is the reason any of this is happening. TWD would not exist without him. We're so sad to hear of his passing, and we're thankful for his work. 

We also want to give condolences to family, friends, and co-workers of Walking Dead stunt man John Bernecker who died in an accident on set last week. Our heart goes out to all you guys. 

Now, The Thing. Neither Karen or Jason had seen this horror classic, and since so many of you excitedly suggested we cover it, we both hoped we'd like it. Listen in to find out if we did.

261: Under the Skin
01:00:09

1200x630bb
Minimal. Creepy. Seductive. Highly disturbing. But enough about my guest cohost this week, Harry Duran, let's talk about the movie we're covering, Under the Skin, starring Scarlett Johansson :P It was all those things, and also, we thought, incredibly thought-provoking and well made—and it's crazy the movie used footage from hidden cameras filming Scarlett Johansson actually picking up men.

Also, some TV news, and feedback from you guys!

You can find dozens of down-to-earth, in-depth interviews with podcasters (including ones with me and Karen) by my guest Harry Duran over at podcastjunkies.com.

260: Pictures of You + The Girl with All the Gifts
01:11:32

TGWATG-Poster-27x39

This ep we read all your haiku and describe your photos from the Fracture contest, and reveal the winner (who gets a $100 Fracture gift certificate). Karen and I were seriously delighted and moved by those. Thank you to everyone who entered.

Also, we talk about the film version of The Girl with All the Gifts, which you can rent on iTunes or Amazon if you want to watch it first. And we cover some news, and do our usual goofing around.

ANNOUNCEMENT I'm thinking of setting a new goal for Patreon. If we make it to $1000/month, I'll do something embarrassing. But I haven't figured out what that is yet. If you have any ideas for what that should be, email brains@podcastica.com. And you can check out our Patreon page at patreon.com/jasonandkaren.

I have fun with all the panels I host for Walker Stalker, but every once in awhile, one stands out as really special, and this is one of those.

And I'm proud to have my friends Duncan and Melissa, who also happens to voice the lead character of the series, Clementine, to geek out about it and give us all the behind-the-scenes info! Also, some news about TWD, and some great feedback and insights from you guys about Negan and other WD topics.

Here's the Jeffrey Dean Morgan panel from Walker Stalker Con Atlanta last weekend. One of my favorite panels ever. JDM slips in and out of character, and quickly wins the crowd over. Let's see if he'll do the same for you :) We're also joined by Greg Nicotero, who directed the S7 premiere and gives a lot of great info on the thinking and logistics behind it.

A big giant thank you to Walker Stalker head honcho James Frazier for letting us play this. Want to see some of these panels in person sometime? Check out walkerstalkercon.com!

226: Comic Con News + Stranger Things
01:52:10

So many geektastic trailers and news came out of Comic Con last week, and Karen and I nerd out about it all with special guest James Frazier, head honcho at Walker Stalker Con and fanfest.com. Plus, we muse on which Walking Dead characters we'd want as roommates in the real world, and then to wrap it up, we cover the new 80's-horror-sci-fi-inspired Netflix sensation, Stranger Things! All that plus the latest WD news and your amazing feedback.

Ep 225, our longest yet! It's basically two or three episodes in one. First, The Blair Witch Project is a polarizing movie.

Besides that, get the latest news about all things TWD, a lengthy impassioned talk about our top five TV recommendations (plus what we're most looking forward to), some great feedback from you guys, my experience at Podcast Movement and Walker Stalker New Jersey, and more!

224: Top 5 Movie Objects We'd Want + Only Lovers Left Alive
01:58:37

If you could have any object from any movie or TV show and it would work just like it did in the movie, what would it be? Karen and I had a blast thinking and talking about this, and you guys had some great answers too. Also, an in-depth discussion about whether it's realistic how many bad guys have appeared in TWD – I bring up the open-world post-apocalyptic game Rust as a real-world (of sorts) case study. Plus, we review Jim Jarmusch's moody, funny indie vampire love story starring Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton.

In this episode Karen and Jason go back to the Island, with our top five favorite things about Lost! We think Lost was important in spearheading the kind of television that ultimately led to The Walking Dead, and that our podcast wouldn't exist without it, and it's about time we gave it some due.

Now for something completely different! If you're in the mood for something twisted, beautifully made, creative, clever, poetic, violent, unpredictable, and extremely tragic, go check out the 2003 Korean (not the 2013 US remake) revenge-movie classic, Oldboy, and then come back and listen to me, my wife Jenny, and my friend Harry gush about it. If you have the constitution, I highly recommend checking out this movie!

Fair warning, we're in deep deep denial about Glenn's alleged apparent untimely death this episode, and so we can't help but look at things from that filter. So be warned, there won't be a lot of grieving happening—not until we know for sure. Still, we break things down for you and look at it all through a few different angles. Plus news, and as you can imagine, lots of heartfelt email and calls from you guys.

187: Mike Carey (The Girl With All the Gifts)
01:24:38

GWATG-reviewsFor months now you’ve heard me go on and on about Mike Carey’s zombie novel, The Girl With All the Gifts. It’s one of my favorite books in any genre, and I’ve gotten messages of thanks from a lot of you smart people who took my advice and read it. The main course of today’s podcast, from 30:33 to 1:08:22, is an interview with Mike Carey, who also wrote the screenplay for the upcoming movie adaptation. Mike talks about:
• How the idea for the novel came about.
• What it was like being on set and working on the movie.
• His thoughts on writing from a child’s perspective.
• Director Colm McCarthy’s commitment to hiring a diverse cast for the movie.
• His thoughts on the ending of the book.
• How you can read an additional chapter of the book online.
• A tease about his next book, Fellside, due out next April.
• And much more!

Mike is as well spoken as he is a terrific writer, and I know all you TGWATG fans will dig this. And if you haven’t read the book yet, we tried to keep things spoiler-light in the first several minutes of the interview. In the meantime, here’s our Amazon link: The Girl With All the Gifts

Also in this episode, Karen gives her thoughts on the recent trailers for FTWD and TWD S6, plus news, and your terrific feedback!

Please shop Amazon (walkingdeadcast.com/amazon) to support The Walking Dead 'Cast. It costs the same for you when you use that link, but we get a small kickback.

Next join me, Melissa, and Duncan about a week before the FTWD premiere, around August 18, for a preview of that series!

This episode I'm stoked to be talking about a couple of just such movies, both in theaters now: the post-apocalyptic action-adventure Mad Max: Fury Road and the sci-fi psychological thriller Ex Machina. I'm equally stoked to be joined by two of my favorite people, Petey Cinderson of Walker Stalker fame and Melissa Hutchison of Telltale's The Walking Dead games (among many other things).

  • How it was to film the scene when Rick punched Aaron.
  • Why Aaron resisted the apple sauce.
  • His friendship with Jordan Woods-Robinson, who plays Eric.
  • And a lot more.

  • What it was like to film the emotional scene where Eugene finally admits he's "NOT A SCIENTIST!"
  • His resting bitch face.
  • Whether Karen or I was right about whether Eugene saw that Abraham was about to off himself when they first met.
  • And a bunch more.

CreepshowIn this ep, we break one of the big podcasting commandments, i.e. "Thou shall not ramble." Luckily, we have chapters! So if you don't want to hear us talk about Game of Thrones, Godzilla, Spider-Man, and X-Men for half an hour, skip ahead to hear our thoughts on the George Romero  and Stephen King's classic campy horror anthology flick, Creepshow. Then stick around for the main course, our top five all-time favorite horror movies (along with a handful of yours). Also news, feedback, and stuff that's GREAT!

Also, CONTEST! How would you like to win a set of Telltale Walking Dead games: Season 1, 400 Days, and Season 2? Three of you lucky dogs can do just that. Go to walkingdeadcast.com/contests for details.

144: Favorite Things About TWD + The Returned
01:54:16

The-Walking-Dead-Season-4-Cast-Banner3Bonjour mes amis! After four seasons we decided it's time we finally do a top five list about our favorite things about The Walking Dead, and thankfully it was really hard to keep it to just five (so I cheated and picked ten). You guys all had some really great ones too, btw. Also, we review the moody, eery French TV show, Les Revenants (The Returned), we announce the winners of the Clementine hat contest, give the latest news, respond to your feedback, and more! Fargo anyone?!

TheReturned_CompleteOne thing I forgot to mention in the show, we'd appreciate it if you would take a minute to answer this demographics survey: http://survey.libsyn.com/deadcast

A few things about it:
* It'll help us with advertising and it will literally take less than 60 seconds. I bet you could finish it in less than 10, actually.
* We're proud to only advertise stuff we genuinely like (so far that's been Audible and Fracture), and we plan to keep it that way. This will hopefully allow us to do more of that.
* We see advertising as a way of keeping the podcast free.
* It's completely anonymous. There's a space to put in your email address, but you don't have to. That part is optional. If you do, only Karen and I will have access to it and we won't give it to anyone else.
* We need at least 250 of you to complete this for it to be effective. So thank you! Also, the baby goat wants you to do it :)

Here's the URL again: http://survey.libsyn.com/deadcast

We were up against some heavy competition (Star Trek, Kevin Smith, and Taylor Swift), and winners in other categories included some of the podcast greats (This American Life, Radio Lab, and Grammar girl, to name a few). So thank you, and congratulations to you guys too, because we're all in this together :)

Screen Shot 2013-12-31 at 3.10.44 PMFirst Hershel and now this. Lots of goodbyes on this podcast. Join me, Karen and special guests Lissy and Chad to bid a fond farewell to this amazing show, Breaking Bad, and give you all our thoughts about the final eight episodes and the series in general. For good measure, Karen and I stick around to throw in some news about TWD and respond to the latest batch of feedback from you guys.

And then we'll be back in a couple of weeks for another ep. Happy New Year!

126: TWD Issue #118
41:18

Walking-Dead-118-cover

And now for something a little different! At your request (well, some of ya anyway) we're spinning off our Under the Comic Covers segments into their own episodes, and here's the first one. In this episode, Mr. Blahg, Gracie Lou, and special guest, me, review The Walking Dead issue #118, the fourth issue in the current All Out War mega-arc.

This episode is entirely about the comic book, so if you're not caught up and don't want to be spoiled on it, hang tight and we'll catch you in a few. And by the way, this doesn't mean Karen and I will be podcasting any less than usual. It just means each time a new issue of the comic is releases, you comic lovers will get a bonus.

Let us know what you think, and if you have any requests or ideas!

125: Scott Wilson (Hershel)
26:47

Screen Shot 2013-12-06 at 1.03.46 AM

It was a genuine privilege for Karen and I to be able to talk with Scott Wilson after his momentous exit from The Walking Dead last week, and he was as sweet and charming as ever. Listen in as he talks about:
* What it was like to film his death scene.
* What Hershel would say to Maggie and Beth if he had the chance.
* What he'll miss most about TWD and whether he'll keep watching.
* What he wants to do next.
* And a lot more (including, yes, a lot of gushing from us).

Enjoy, and we'll be back later this month to talk Breaking Bad!

124: "Too Far Gone" (S4E8)
01:54:07

Screen Shot 2013-12-03 at 4.16.58 AMTwo men important to TWD fell this week in the stunning climax to the half-season. Join us in this extra-long podcast as we go into detail about our thoughts. Lots to talk about re: the comic this week too: In Comic Talk Jaden goes over the many similarities between this ep and the comic, and throws in a few informed predictions. And Gracie Lou and Mr. Blahg go Under the Comic Covers to give you their review of issue #117, released last week. All that and a ton of great email and calls from you guys, many of whom wrote in for the first time. Thanks all, we appreciate each and every one of you.

Catch us in a few weeks when our good friend Lissy joins us to review the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad (and rewatch 'em along with us in the meantime). And we'll do a couple more episodes in January and then be back for the second half of TWD S4 in early Feb.

Happy holidays everybody. Peace.

123: Chad L. Coleman (Tyreese)
26:25

Screen Shot 2013-11-27 at 10.31.28 PMI've been enjoying Chad Coleman's measured portrayal of Tyreese, this multi-faceted character who with his hammer and his wool cap seemed to have burst straight out of the pages of the comic this season, especially once he became activated by Karen's death. It was a pleasure to speak with Chad as he thoughtfully answered everything we wanted to know. Join me and special guest Brittany as we find out things like:
* What Tyreese would've done if he had found out Carol killed Karen before she left the prison (his answer might surprise you—it did me).
* What it was like to film that crazy scene by the road where Tyreese hammers his way through a massive crowd of zeds.
* How Chad sees the relationship between Tyreese and Rick.
* What was going on in the S3 finale when Tyreese abruptly left the room seeming like he had a purpose.
* How working on TWD compares to his time on the acclaimed HBO show The Wire.
* And much more!

Hope you enjoy the interview as much as we did! For all our listeners in the U.S., happy Thanksgiving!
