  1. Hey Guys!

    Really enjoyed the podcast. Sorry I couldn’t make it but Sunday is the only day the Mrs and I can make it out to see movies together.

    Been a long time since I read the book. The ‘cast made me remember how eye rolling and groan worthy I found much of it. But then I am much more conservative politically (shocking from a Stannis fan) than the intended demo I guess,

    Segen from the movie is a 100% Marry and Mirelle Enos is borderline Scorpions/One Night but only if One Night = 15 minutes.

    Good discussion guys! I’ve read the book twice and yall brought up things that I never noticed. Just like in ASOIAF there is a lot “between the lines” of this book. I picked up on Colin Powell and Nelson Mandela making cameos but didn’t make the connection to Howard Dean. Did anyone pick up on any other real people being referenced? Wish I could have made it for the discussion but kay sue-rah, sue-rah. 🙂

    • Me too, i found the podcast insightful. I only listened to the abridged audiobook. So the origins of the zombie virus were not known to me. I did pick on the Nelson Mandela thing, however i was clueless about Colin Powell and Howard Dean. Plus i didn’t know what was happening with Redeker 🙂 – Vikram
