You'll notice that this is not the 1950s creature feature we promised two weeks ago. As Patreon subscribers already know, we recorded a George Romero tribute instead, with somewhat obvious film choices Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Dawn of the Dead (1978). This is a long one (dare I say... a meaty one), because it turns out we have a lot to say about zombie culture; zombie survivalists; the allegorical power of zombies; what a cool band name 'The Goblins' is; violent white masculinity; and the time Saoirse went to a wedding on the set of the Dawn of the Dead remake.

Interstitial music:
