I decided that the Zombie Challenge is the perfect opportunity to introduce everyone to my favourite podcast.
If you are a geek who plans on surviving vampires taking over your town, werewolves in the woods behind your house, homicidal maniacs who just don't die, the invasion of aliens who first impregnate you with a human/alien hybrid, the inevitable zombie uprising, bad movies, or just being the poor unfortunate in the red shirt then the Geek Survival Guide Podcast is for you.
All the way back in 2006 we were gifted with our first lesson in geek survival. Listening to this first episode of Geek Survival Guide will teach you some of the important basics of zombie survival. For example. how do you identify a zombie? Ricks suggests that you try tossing a Twinkie. If they go for the Twinkie they are human. If they lunge for you then it is time to contact your local chapter of the Zombie Squad.
So, say you have positively identified a zombie. The flesh craving shambler is dragging itself towards you moaning for your brains - what do you do? As he reminds us when it comes to self-defence: You are not a ninja. Also, memorise this mantra: Head shot. Head shot. Head shot.
I highly recommend this podcast. It is the only podcast that I properly follow. Ricks will both entertain you and save your geeky little life all the while putting on his best host voice which sounds absolutely fantastic and most certainly gives to the shows individual edge. Some of my favourite episodes would have to be Daikaijuu, Surviving the Loss of a Beloved TV Show (Firefly, Tru Calling, and BSG D=<), Raising an Alien/Human Hybid, Working for a Super Villian, Bad Movie BINGO Redux, and... oh, heck! I have truely enjoyed all of his episodes. You can follow and download GSG on Rick's Blogger or you can subscribe via iTunes.
