I’ll be on Ashley Miller’s podcast tonight.

Tonight at 7pm I’ll be a guest on Ashley Miller‘s podcast.  The description of the show is:

Join me, JT Eberhard of What Would JT Do?, and Nicholas Thurkettle of his eponymous blog as we talk politics: Wendy Davis; media: World War Z and the political nature of zombies; and guest choice: the surprise success of The Heat.

I’ll post the link later when Ashley creates it (though you can RSVP here).  :)

    Political nature of zombies?

    Whyever would one think the spectre of civilization being destroyed by mindless hordes of human-shaped but visually distinctive and decidedly inhuman Others, mercilessly hunting and consuming, leaving a few hardened, brave, self-reliant, well-armed survivors to guiltlessly blow them away would have political implications?

      Zoey/Louis 2016!

    Great podcast. Didn’t know she was doing one now. Just another thing to add to my playlist.

    I’m surprised you guys didn’t bring up the whole Japanese-giant-monster-as-metaphor-for-nuclear-power thing.

    On the zombie front, I stayed up late and saw a old bad 80′s movie called Lifeforce. Seeing it after that last podcast made me notice some new things about it. In a way, it tries (almost successfully) to simultaneously embody vampires (including the erotic horror aspects), zombies (fast), science fiction (aliens), and straight up horror. In retrospect I can’t think of a film that juggles that much at once.

      Oh yeah, apocalypse is in that movie too.

      Thanks for the tip about Lifeforce – gonna give that a try :-)
