Lets see what I remember from the day:

Dr. Pus Presents “Library of the Living Dead” #14:

Serialized zombie fiction, as well as all things zombies, including light verse. Dr. Pus has a knack for taking popular songs and turning them into gory parodies. Dr. Pus himself has a lot of enthusiasm, as well as a voice in tenor and in scripting his comments. My only complaints are that the show seems to drag on in parts, and that’s coming from a guy that’s been pushing boxes around all day, as well as the production/sound could be a little more polished. This episode features a review of a Nutman novel. Not a bad way to kill time, though.

Mur Lafferty Presents: The Takeover

aka, “The Office, with Zombies.”

Slick production, and the musical score is just down right hilarious. The concept, however, begins to wear thing after three episodes, however. Basically, there’s a corporation that’s providing zombies as “employees.” Obviously, this echoes one of Romero’s original bits of social commentary, with the zombie filling in for the mindless consumer. It’s just, it gets old very quickly. Personally, I plan to let my subscription keep downloading for possible future listening, but I’m not waiting breathlessly.

There was also a dated Robert Silverberg story from Escape Pod, and a Podcastle miniture that is escaping me at the moment. Believe it or not, that’s an indication of how successful it was. There are a few things I listened to that I don’t even remember as of this writing. Musical interludes were provided by Ghostface Killah, Cephalic Carnage, The Sword, The Butthole Surfers, and Ice Cube.
