There’s a new radio podcast coming out that accounts the fictional zombie apocalypse of 2012, and master record spinner Jimmy Rudolph is giving the city what it needs most in this time of crisis…. Jazz! (PR Log)

Indie zombie movie Countyline is due to begin filming soon in Kokomo Indiana and while they’ve already finished casting you can still help out and support the film. (The Republic)

Director Jeff Stewart has also finished filming his indie zombie flick The Reunion in the already undead city of New Jersey. Just kidding everyone, Jersey isn’t that bad. (nj.com)

The cast and crew of The Walking Dead sat down for a panel at Paleyfest 2011 to drop some HUGE news about season 2 of the show. (Dread Central)

Overkill Entertainment is planning the Ohio Zombie Apocalypse in which you will be able to participate in a staged zombie outbreak similar to the successful event held in Atlanta last year. No word on dates yet, but they’re currently accepting staff applications. (We Zombie)

Dan Drezner wrote a book called Theories of International Politics and Zombies based off of his foreign policy paper. If you’re a fan of politics it’s a really good read and makes some good points in the style of Colbert or Stewart. (Examiner)

Remember that nurse/gang leader from The Walking Dead who has done a LOT of television in his career? Well he talked about being on the show on a podcast recently. (Movie Viral)

Plants vs Zombies is officially coming out for the PS3 with a scheduled release of February 3. (Buy Zombie)

Just a reminder that Friday, February 4 is “tweet like a zombie day” in honor of the birthday of one mister George Romero. (FEARnet)

Zombie Day is about as low budget as you can get because it was made by middle school kids. It’s got two trailers and ninjas, though, so we’re gonna allow it and show you those trailers after the break. (Buy Zombie)

The Inevitable Zombie Podcast episode 005 has arrived!

Posted by Johnathon Brock On December - 23 - 2010

Greetings, undead masses! Johnathon reporting in to unveil the latest episode of the Inevitable Zombie Podcast

Now there are several different ways to get the Inevitable Zombie Podcast.

Episode 005 – 10 directors that NEED to direct a zombie movie…

Hosts – Cory Casciato and Johnathon Brock

Run Time: 1 Hour 04 Minutes 03 Seconds

Show Notes

This week Cory and I discussed the top 10 directors who need to direct a zombie movie, but never have. Also, we wrapped up the 2010 year with a look back at what Cory was looking forward to, and what we are looking forward to in 2011. No real show notes because it’s a list show, and I don’t want to spoil the surprise of who we picked.

However, here is a link to Cory’s original post about his most wanted directors for a zombie project.

And here is a link to Cory’s 2010 most wanted and most anticipated zombie projects in general.

(Read both of them after you listen to the show…. or before… whatever)

One final note… This podcast isn’t too graphic, but it is labeled Not Safe For Work. We drop the f-bomb on more than one occasion and talk about some of the more graphic images of The Walking Dead in show and comic form, as well as some of the other things we discuss. Just a heads up for those of you listening at your work cubes—wear headphones.

Alright, that’s it, go listen to it and let us know what you think in the comments. Tell us what you’d like to see from us on future shows, make fun of my impressions, or ask some questions for next week’s show.

The Inevitable Zombie Podcast episode 001 has arrived!

Posted by Johnathon Brock On November - 12 - 2010

Greetings, undead masses! Johnathon reporting in to unveil the latest episode of the Inevitable Zombie Podcast

Now there are several different ways to get the Inevitable Zombie Podcast.

Episode 001 – In the beginning, there were zombies…

- Cory Casciato and Johnathon Brock

Run Time: 49:02

This week we discuss The Walking Dead episode 2: Guts, and the upcoming World of the Living Dead online browser based MMO. We also single out some regular commenters on the site and talk about some upcoming movies, including the mysterious but recently popular Swedish zombie flick ZON261. There’s some talk about how we feel about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and their choice for a director, followed by why we hate Meghan Fox and why she should stay away from zombie movies. We wrap it up with some talk about zombie romance, and why it won’t and shouldn’t reach the levels that Twilight has with vampires. Enjoy!

Spoilers for The Walking Dead as a series in comic book and future episode form occur from minutes 20 to 26 and we mark them in the podcast, so make sure to avoid that area if you don’t want to know what’s in store.

One final note… This podcast isn’t too graphic, but it is labeled Not Safe For Work. We drop the f-bomb on more than one occasion and talk about some of the more graphic images of The Walking Dead in show and comic form, as well as some of the other things we discuss.

The Inevitable Zombie Podcast episode ZERO has arrived!

Posted by Johnathon Brock On November - 5 - 2010

Greetings, undead masses! Johnathon reporting in to unveil the latest episode of the Inevitable Zombie Podcast

Now there are several different ways to get the Inevitable Zombie Podcast.

Each week Cory Casciato and I will go into the world of the walkers to tell you the latest important zombie news. We’ll wrap up the previous episode of The Walking Dead, discuss upcoming movies and games, comics, and probably break off on a tangent or two about other interesting news as well. So without further ado… Episode Zero has arrived.

Now if you’re not looking to get spoiled on The Walking Dead, or you haven’t read the comics, you’re going to want to skip minutes 20 through 27 of the podcast. Everything before and after that is safe, although we do spoil the pilot episode itself if you haven’t seen it (if you haven’t seen it, just head over to AMC.com and watch it online before you listen to this).

If you’re wondering why we’re calling this episode zero, it’s because it’s a trial run. We’re still getting the recording specifics together, I’m designing the logo for Itunes and creating the feed, we’re finding our groove, etc. Next week the post should have a little more organized layout with show notes, a graphic header and a link to the feed as well. Itunes should follow a few weeks after that because it takes about a month for a podcast to get approved in their store and be search-able.

One final note… This podcast isn’t too graphic, but it is labeled Not Safe For Work. We drop the f-bomb on more than one occasion and talk about some of the more graphic images of The Walking Dead in show and comic form, as well as some of the other things we discuss. Just a heads up for those of you listening at your work cubes—wear headphones.

Alright, that’s it, go listen to it and let us know what you think in the comments. Tell us what you’d like to see from us on future shows, make fun of my impressions, or ask some questions for next week’s show.
