And in the saddest of all possible news, this week’s Inevitable Zombie Podcast was lost in a terrible computer-related incident that induced much swearing. Look for a special, super-sized podcast to return next week. Or look for a lot more swearing if it happens again.

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. 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.
