Oh my glob, you guys! I’m sorry for the lateness again. I’d tell you what happened last week, but frankly, I can’t remember what I did other than work. Anyway, this week the Shauncastic cast talks about FARSCAPE. Frankly, while it was out, I avoided watching this show–except for when I was at a friend’s house after school, she made me sit though it. Thought it was too weird; however, I’m sorta kinda powering through the series currently so I’ll have a real opinion later.
So this week’s Intro goes to Max Brooks’ best-selling novel, WORLD WAR Z. I got this book way back when I was in college, but I never got a chance to really sit down and read it. It offers a whole new look at how we see the zombie apocalypse, which is through personal experiences from a variety of civilian survivors from key locations, military personnel, scientists, and etc.
There are so many great stories. One that I did forget to mention in the podcast was a personal account from a someone who was part of a K-9 unit. Yes, dogs serve an important role in the Zombie War. They do recon, they lead groups of Zs shambling though an adjacent building and let them fall to their deaths. It’s a great little moment when that happens.
I definitely recommend reading this book. If you’re one of those book purists who might want to see the movie…maybe see the movie first.
