DECONSTRUCT #THECOMMONWEALTH! …From their economic system to systemic inequality (both spoken and unspoken). Dave's obsession with "allowance". Ninja #CarolPeletier with the long hair's partnership with a vastly more sympathetic #LanceHornsby. And we're here for #Carzekiel & #Mercress / #Princer / #Merces.
Over 3+ HOURS of laughter (especially during the intro) and massively extended takes that #TWDU aficionados would appreciate that we simply had to cut for time are contained in the UNEDITED EPISODE RECORDING! Stream this, now, whilst supporting the BEST #TWDUniverse #podcast, here:

David Cameo:
Rachael Burt:



  • Rachael: Lots more Carol Peletier! Callbacks galore! Trust no one!

  • Rach: Why aren’t they killing anything?!
  • Dave: How insulting is this haunted house?
  • Class disparities in The Commonwealth.
  • Dave: Is the haunted house the equivalent of a too-soon war reenactment in the TWDU?
  • Ezekiel asks Carol if she has gotten word from Maggie Rhee or Lydia.

  • Dave: Mommy Pamela Milton’s allowance to the elites.
  • Do upper class kids get their pick of the litter when it comes to jobs?

  • Can anyone be a soldier?
  • Why does Magna not want to be a soldier?
  • Why did Magna even come to The Commonwealth?
  • What would happen if Magna and Yumiko Okumura rekindled their relationship? Are such relationships, between classes, sanctioned in The Commonwealth?
  • Would you tell Mercer no?
  • Do the classes live in sectioned-off/gated dwellings?

  • Who are Mei’s parents and are they in the Upper Class?
  • Can Mei be trusted?
  • On what and where do people spend their money?
