While #TeamZombie had planned to talk about Preacher this week, we drift instead into the Doctor Who casting news and the wider topic of inclusivity in the genre world, in a very not-at-all-planned kind of way. It’s Zombpocalypse Now! Even if it doesn’t actually sound like it this week.
Timothy: So fair warning… this is not the standard kind of episode for us. If you’re tired of the discussions about the roles of gender in genre and the question of inclusivity in entertainment, well, that’s where we ended up with this episode.
Dustin: Where we ended up is you and I having the kind of conversation we have when we’re not recording, only this time we were, and we called it a Zombpocalypse Now podcast. Or an H2O, Now With More The Amazing Dusto episode.
Timothy: I do miss your terrible predictions.
Dustin: My predictions were always perfect in every way, and you know it. Anyway, we do a terrible job talking about Preacher this week, and a terrible job of having Mindy with us, because we didn’t. For reasons. She’ll be back next week, I think. Surely she won’t want to miss diving into the final episodes of Teen Wolf with us.
Timothy: Surely not. I mean, why wouldn’t she want to jump in at the end of a series she’s never watched a single episode of?
Dustin: She would. I know it. Anyway, we wish we had had her here this week, especially since we were talking about the genders and the inclusivity, and it would have been good to have more than the straight guy and the gay guy perspective.
Timothy: We didn’t actually plan to have this conversation this week though, so there’s that kinda terrible excuse. Anyway, we’ll be back next week with the final episodes of Teen Wolf, Dustin’s favorite show...
Dustin: I love it. Love it.
Timothy: … and more of the usual nonsense we do here. Thanks for listening, folks!
