Glenn is alive; well, the Doctor did tell you weeks ago! “Heads up,” Arnold and Scott celebrate the return of our favorite former pizza delivery guy in the penultimate episode of the first half of THE WALKING DEAD‘s sixth season, and then it’s off to a “Corporate Retreat” with the Z NATION team. What’s up with Doc and Addy this time around? Finally, Ash and his companions make it past the “Brujo”‘s door, but inside there may be even greater danger than what awaits them on the road!

And stay tuned, iZOMBIE fans, we’ll catch up with Liv next time!

He's spoken of his love for the series for many years on various podcasts.  Now, host John S. Drew takes you along his personal journey through time and space to explore each and every episode of the cult television series, Doctor Who.  In the first episode, John looks at "An Unearthly Child" and points out that while it's not all that great a story, it is still a story that is essential to the entire core of who the Doctor is.

Play along with John and watch "The Daleks", the next story to be reviewed by watching on Hulu or on DVD.

It’s the beginning of the holiday season on “Presenting the Transcription Feature.”  Thanksgiving is not too early for the Lux Radio Theater adaptation of Miracle on 34th Street, featuring the movie’s original stars: Maureen O’Hara, John Payne, and Edmund Gwenn.  Remember that the show’s inciting incident is the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and the rest of the story plays out over the month of December.  So, as you prepare that turkey and those yams, tune in to some classic old time radio.

 Writing music feels like voodoo to me so it’s with great pleasure I welcome composer Kyle Newmaster to the show. Kyle is a classically trained musician who studied jazz before turning his hand to movie soundtracks. A lifelong fan of the movies, Kyle has scored a variety of films including “Where Hope Grows”, “ABC’s Of Death 2”, “Something Wicked” and “The Myth Of The American Sleepover.” With “Star Wars” in the air, we also touch upon Kyle’s work on video games for the famous saga.

Kyle gives us a detailed rundown on how a movie score is completed, from those first notes on a piano all the way to orchestration. The process is not that different from that of screenwriting as we found many similarities in our discussion. Sometimes creative endeavors seem impossibly daunting but Kyle offers great insight on how to tackle them one step – or note – at a time.

Arnold and Scott are “Always Accountable” when it comes to critiquing the latest episode of THE WALKING DEAD, and if you ask the they’ll say “We Were Nowhere Near the Grand Canyon.” That goes for the team on Z NATION too, but never mind that because it’s time to talk about “Books From Beyond” courtesy of the newest installment of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD. Finally, some major Major revelations come up in “Max Wager” on iZOMBIE. Four zombie shows, no waiting!

 

NOTE: Scott was caught in some bad weather during the recording of this episode, so you might notice things are occasionally a bit stuttery. All part of apocalyptic podcast-making!
