Great new podcast!

I greatly enjoyed the discussion between David and Tim on the topic of “Night of the Living Dead.” Even though I’ve seen that movie several times, I learned a lot about the movie itself as well as its place in zombie lore and horror history. I appreciated the chemistry between the two hosts who brought similar, yet different points of view. You could tell they really did their homework, and put a lot of thought into the discussion and the show format overall. I look forward to their review of “The Thing” and cannot wait to see where they take this podcast.
