The Walking Dead Review
The folks here at Indie Nation are huge The Walking Dead fans. It has been a good while since we did a review so we are covering the three episodes since the mid-season break.
We also did a recap of the news we covered this week. If you would like to take part in the news show, get yourself into #indienation at geekshed IRC and hail us in chat. We do the show weekly from 8-10 pm EST with except on the second Monday of each month and legal holidays.
We closed the show with a few tracks from The Griswolds. You can find them at bandcamp.
Let Us Talk About “Walkers”
Musically, we opened up the show with RE: Your Brains by Jonathan Coulton
As some of you know, most of the staff at this station are HUUUUUGE Walking Dead fans. Brian and I actually have a hard time getting to the news stories sometimes because we start the Monday night Tech Net News and Opinion Show off with a quick review of the week’s previous episode. Brian and I thought we might do a Walking Dead only podcast. We hope you enjoy it and welcome your opinion.
On this episode of Through Gamer Goggles News we enjoyed the company of the creators of Zpocalypse from GreenBrier Games. We had a wonderful time discussing their semi-cooperative board game and its future. Lend us your ear for a while and here what Zpocalypse is all about.
You can learn more about Zpocalypse at GreenBrier Games.
It has happened, the zombie apocalpse has arrived… in the form of a board game. About three weeks ago we introduce the Indienation listeners to the Creators of Zpocalypse. We have finally managed to film our Box Breaking on this great game.
Take a look.
Hey listeners it has been awhile since we have aired Through Gamer Goggles News, but we wanted to let you know it’s coming back. That’s right next week, Tuesday April 2nd, we will return at 9:00 P.M. Eastern. We will take a look at one of the recent Kickstarter project from GreenBrieR Games Zpocalypse. Jeff Gracia from GreenBrier Games will be joining us live discuss the semi – cooperative board game and its future.

The goal is to knock over the Zombies and keep the damsel standing. Easy to play. Wonderful high-quality wooden hand painted pieces are included. A bloody good game.
Noah Cooper Interview, Writer and Director of “Ninja Zombies”, Overall Best Feature Film at the 2011 Indie Gathering
This particular interview is with Noah Cooper. Noah wrote and directed “Ninja Zombies”. This is one of many in a series of interviews at the 2011 Indie Gathering. It is an annual international event usually held at the Westlake Holiday Inn in the greater Cleveland, Ohio area. This was the event’s fifteenth year.
This was the first Indie Gathering Noah Cooper attended but he did compete and win with a short film, “Underground Sonata” , in last year’s competition as well. This year he entered a feature film “Ninja Zombies” which won first place in the horror/comedy category and also won Best Overall Feature Film for the festival. Congrats and kudos to Mr. Cooper and his entire team.
This one is everywhere but it is still rather entertaining news. I first got word of it over at TechDirt and soon after at Slashdot. It seems that an author over at The Center for Disease Control and Prevention got rather creative and post an article about how to prepare for a zombie apocalypse. The article opens as follows:
There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for. Take a zombie apocalypse for example. That’s right, I said z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it happens you’ll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency.
The post also includes photos, a brief history of zombies, and really looks pretty darn good for a government blog. The article is actually about general disaster preparedness and, in my humble opinion, made a rather dry topic somewhat entertaining.
