In this episode, Shawn is joined by Jim "The Tank" Dorsey, the man, myth, and legend behind the Lord Humungus character at various conventions and the Wasteland Weekend event in LA. You can also see his Road Pig costume in the photos from last episode. Tank talks about his inspiration to play the character and how he got involved with the post-apocalyptic genre from a young age.

The intro clip you heard was Tank and his Dogs of War kicking off Wasteland Weekend 2014, courtesy of the Apocalyptic Post.

You can also check out Tank in the short film Mad Max: A Wasteland Story.

Dreadnoks! That's Shawn on the left as Torch.
From left to right: Torch, Heartwrencher, Monkeywrench, Ripper, Road Pig, and Buzzer.
And we're back! Again! In this episode, we explore an idea Shawn had to make a sort of post-apoc Siskel and Ebert show reviewing short films in the post-apoc genre. You should probably watch the films first (it won't take long!) so you know more about what we're discussing. Also, we give spoilers.

The Gift - Shawn: Thumbs Down, Jon: Thumbs Up
2 Hours - Shawn: Thumbs Up, Jon: Thumbs Up
Outcasted - Shawn: Thumbs Down, Jon: Thumbs Down
Last Strands of Man - Shawn - Thumb Down, Jon: Thumbs Down
When They're Gone - Shawn: Thumbs Up, Jon: Thumbs Up
Population: One - Shawn: Thumbs Down, Jon: Thumbs Down

We plan to do more shows like this in the future with more in-depth commentary on the literally thousands of post-apoc short films out there. Feel free to recommend your favorites!

In this episode, we talk about the classic must-see post-apoc movie Dr. Strangelove. What did we like about it? What didn't we like about it? Listen and see!

We also talk a great bit about what we've been up to in the last 5 months, including Jon's F:NV mod, Shawn's costuming adventures at DragonCon, and more. And can you believe that we even discuss our next 2 show ideas? So much for quitting the show, huh?

Episode 50

Download Episode 50

Welcome back to this very special episode number 50! In it, we're joined by InXile Entertainment's Brian Fargo and Nathan Long.

Brian Fargo is the original founder of Interplay and creator of such classic games as Bard's Tale, Neuromancer, and our favorite: Wasteland.

Nathan Long is an author and screenwriter probably most famous for his series of novels based on the Warhammer universe. He's currently the lead writer on Wasteland 2.

With the sequel in the works, we figured it would be a great time to sit down with Brian and Nathan and discuss their post-apoc influences and the game itself. Not only that, but Brian also throws down an exclusive for us relating to W2's end-game, or at least Brian's version of an end-game.

You can find out more on the game at the official site, follow them on Facebook, and you can even still get in on the Kickstarter rewards and pre-order the game now.

Why hello there, TTA fans! Yes, we're back again for our bi-weekly... er, bi-yearly edition of Through the Aftermath! This time around, we talk about some post-apocalyptic movies we've seen recently as we may convert this show to something of a movie review podcast for PA movies (and games?) Let us know what you think!

Jon also talks about his Fallout mod and makes a bold prediction: It will come out this year! Shawn talks about his new PA costuming and prop-building website he's working on and how he'd like to eventually turn it into a thing.

We also wanted to thank you all for the awesome support even though we're not doing this show often enough. The iTunes ratings melt our hearts! You're all so wonderful.
