In this episode, we kick off with our annual tradition: some spoooooky scenarios for your Halloween pleasure. Then, we talk zombies: both speedsters and shamblers, both lacking and retaining humanity, both hilarious and scary. The discussion features (relatively) spoiler-free discussion of 28 Days Later, Zombieland, The Walking Dead, iZombie, and others. Bonus: some history of the zombie concept! Never say we didn’t teach you anything.
