Season 3 of The Walking Dead, AMC's zombie-rific phenomenon, rolls on toward it's big finale. Post-Apodaclypse hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell "walk" (see what we did there?) you through the episodes "Clear", "Arrow in the Doorpost" and "Prey". The war between our gang of survivors and the peoples of Woodbury seems unavoidable now, and if this show has taught us anything, it's that there's no way to know who's going to make it through to the other side alive.

In 1984, Don Johnson would become one of the most recognized faces in the world when Miami Vice hit the TV screen. But in 1975, he was busy wandering the post-nuclear wastelands with a telepathic dog, searching high and low for popcorn and (non-consensual) love. Before Max got Mad and took the Road to Thunderdome, the cult classic A Boy and His Dog, based on the 1969 novella by Harlan Ellison, showed us a world gone crazy after the bombs stopped dropping. Join Post-Apodaclypse hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell as they examine this unique (and frankly, quite messed up) film. Trust them. They have...good taste.
PLEASE NOTE: This episode does have some audio problems, which have now been resolved on future episodes. Our apologies and our hopes that they do not detract from your listening pleasure.

The post-apocalyptic film genre doesn't often get the big budget/big name treatment in Hollywood. In the 1990's, one man set out to change that. His name was Kevin Costner. In 1995 he birthed Waterworld, which, due to many unfortunate factors, became (at that time) the most expensive film ever made. He followed this up in 1997 with The Postman (based on the novel by David Brin), which failed to deliver at the box office (get it?). Join Tim Watts, Michael O'Connell and guest Ken Wood as they break down and discuss both of these Costnerized offerings in this latest installment of Post-Apodaclypse.
