Originally Recorded: 2020/12/18
Edited for our podcast: 2021/01/14
Joined by Steve, from Aim For The Head podcast, Lizzie invites us all over to Brains Gone Bad in order to discuss our thoughts on The Walking Dead: World Beyond's 1st season. It was a real treat to exchange our feelings and perspectives and, by the end of it, I think we all got something out of it and we wanted to share that with you!

David Cameo:
Rachael Burt:

  • "How has Rick Grimes NOT taken out the CRM?" ... "Can’t do much without his boots".
  • Huck’s backstory: Liam O'Leary, from Undead Walking (incorrectly referenced as Cameron Bonomolo, from says it could be made up. Huck's BIG mistake.
  • Scenes/Characters with impact: Shadow Puppets.
  • Elton: Worried about his future. But don’t be, "No one dies anymore!"  Prepared or not?
  • Canned foods: Only good for about 18 months; Mountain Dew gate; Skunky beer and SMEAT.
  • Who loves flashbacks?: LOVING Huck’s; Reflecting on a disappointing FearTWD Season 1
  • Initial description of TWD World Beyond: 2 sisters take different paths.
  • Pacing of the show: Slower pace, but for a reason; See the beauty in the scenery/story.
  • Lizzie & Joe Holt ("Leo Bennett"): Stay Tuned.
  • Cause & Cure: Will we get answers? Dave hates flashbacks (on the original TWD), but everyone else pretty much loves them (or at least the possibility).

  • Shameless Plug: Lizzie’s book, BUY IT!
  • We’re all Martha in the apocalypse.
  • The ever expanding #TWDUniverse.
  • Hope the little psycho: Jupiter trophy bead.
  • #HUCKyeah: Most interesting character; Sketchy behavior; #TEAMHuck.
  • What this series needed was a real time map: old timey plane flying across with dash marks; keeping track of geography.

  • Finally coming across "others".
  • Doesn’t matter where we are, only where we’re going.
  • Book Smarts vs. Hands-On Learning: We see the kids struggle a little.
  • Dave describes the beauty in death.
  • Seeing new stuff: Keeping our attention via the Hornet Empty; Trypophobia is Matt Negrete’s real life fear of holes-in-things.
  • Who’s drinking the Kool-Aid? Can we trust Lyla? Maybe Doctor Samuel Abbot just had an accident.
  • Favorite Characters: Rachael's is Silas, Kim's & Lizzie's is Huck, Steve's is Huck then Silas, Dave's is Hope then Elton.
  • Series-Thus-Far Ratings: Dave ⭐⭐⭐⭐, Rachael ⭐⭐⭐➕, Kim ⭐⭐⭐➕, Steve ⭐, Lizzie ⭐⭐⭐
  • Lizzie & Joe Holt, Part 2: Lizzie is an on-set educator and was working on the same set as him.
  • Alexa Mansour: The Shout-out Rachael bought for Dave (for Christma--- I mean, Hanukkah). During it, Alexa confirms filming of Season 2 is underway.
  • Elton/Percy scene.
  • Constructive criticism.
  • Unexpected results: Keeping an open mind.
  • Closing thoughts: We talk about being on another podcast.

In true fashion, we weave in and out of other #TWDUniverse properties, mostly in relation to #FearTWD S6 (but not exclusively), and even manage to discuss the state of (streaming) media, as it pertains to our love to hate on relationship with #AMCPlus.
Since this was recorded, live, there's no supporter-backed exclusive (Ko-fi backers had the option of joining us in the exclusive, realtime chat, rather than experience the lag of public livestreams), so check out the embedded livestream, just above this text⬆

Click Here to watch the original Cameo and PLEASE RATE/COMMENT on it, to show Alexa some SQUAWKING DEAD love (tell her we sent you)!

David Cameo:
Rachael Burt:

A little public note, here, for my co-host, Rachael.

Thank you.

This was a very thoughtful Hanukkah present and I know what it represents to us as a podcast, as fellow hosts, and friends: The completion of breaking down a #TWDUniverse series from its start, together. Look, not all the good feelings I've had about people have panned out, but seeking you out and doing this thing we do, together, has been the best decision I've ever made. You may not have known it, at the time, but you carried me - and this podcast - through some tough times. And you show up. I know it should be a given - that's what friends do, right? You can't imagine how many special projects I've been a part of just wither because people just stop caring too little to even bother. And I haven't had you tell me that it's annoying yet, me blubbering about how grateful I am that you do show up, so I have to say it over and over again. Maybe it's because of those folks who become too disinterested that I do the best I know how to show you how much you are valued, here.
This was awesome. You are awesome.
