582: "Judge, Jury, Executioner"

It’s the “Randall dilemma” episode, and I (Jason) was curious to know whether it would hit the same as it did 12 years ago. You’ll have to listen to find out.  Links: Sarah Wayne Callies on Real Ones with Jon Bernthal: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/sarah-wayne-callies-actor/id1610616073?i=10...

581: "18 Miles Out" (TWD S2E10 Rewatch)

Yech, the one where Andrea leaves suicidal Beth alone with a knife after promising Maggie she’d keep watch over her, and Lori argues that Andrea should stick with “women’s work”. A surprisingly good episode all things considered :P And we’re thrilled to be joined this week by Archmaester Renny, coho...

580: "Triggerfinger" (TWD S2E9 Rewatch)

I remembered loving this episode because of the zombie scenes, and they were just as good on rewatch. The soapy drama, yeah it was alright too ;)  Next up: TWD S2E10 “18 Miles Out”!

579: "Nebraska" (TWD S2E8 Rewatch)

Back to the rewatch! This is the first ep with Glen Mazzara as showrunner, and I remember being worried whether the show would still be good after Darabont left, and then being relieved that it was great. But do we still feel that way….?  Announcement: Karen, David, and I (Jason) are excited to be h...

578: Civil War (2024)

578: Civil War (2024)

This ep we’re covering the new Alex Garland dystopian action movie, Civil War, in theaters now. On one hand this movie is right up this podcast’s alley: it feels post-apocalyptic and it’s a harrowing, thought-provoking story with great characters, thrilling sequences, and a lot of heart. On the othe...

577: "The Last Time" Listener Feedback Pt 2

Here’s part two of your feedback for the finale of The Ones Who Live. I don’t know if I’ve ever podcasted on something that hit emotional beats so well and so intensely like this while asking us to swallow some pretty ridiculous logistical plot points, and that made for some varied and passionate fe...

576: "The Last Time" Listener Feedback Pt 1

All said and done, feelings were mixed about The Ones Who Live, often from the same person, which made for some interesting feedback. More of you than ever wanted to talk about it (which is awesome) so we’re splitting the feedback up into two parts. Here’s part 1 with special guests Jenny and Randy ...

575: "The Last Time" (TWD: The Ones Who Live S1E6)

We were (all) so stressed going into this episode, weren’t we? There’s so much say about it, positive and otherwise, but man, what a beautiful ending :) Next up: Listener feedback for TWD: The Ones Who Live S1E6 “The Last Time”.

With Lucy out putting the finishing touches on her book (!) I’m happy to be joined this week by fellow Zedheads Dodie and Veronica to respond to another round of fantastic, eye-opening, and varied feedback from you guys for this week’s episode.

573: "Become" (TWD: The Ones Who Live S1E5)

573: "Become" (TWD: The Ones Who Live S1E5)

As is the way with TWD sometimes, this episode made us care a little more about a character before killing her off! A fitting end though, and some great nostalgia in this ep with the return of Gabriel, and some wonderful lightness with Rick and Michonne pretty much on a post-apocalyptic honeymoon. :...

571: "What We" (TWD: The One's Who Live S1E4)

Wow, what an outstanding episode Danai Gurira wrote, and also brilliantly performed with Andrew Lincoln. Intimate, emotional, surprising, and triumphant. Lucy and I both loved it were looking forward to podcasting about it the moment we saw it. Hope you enjoy. Cult recovery resources: https://alittl...
