159: Here Comes the (Zombie) Walrus



KMO welcomes cartoonist, author and performer Paul Gude (aka sgnp) back to the program to discuss the ideas underlying his zombie apocalypse novel, Love in a Time of Zombies. The zombie apocalypse stands as the absurd hyper-example of the sudden development that turns existing lifestyles, assumptions, and power structures upside down. Why do some people long for such a reversal while others deny the very possibility even as it sinks its undead teeth into their throats?

Music by Southside.

Just to be Clear...
The video above is the amazing "Love in the Time of Zombies" poem to which I referred in the podcast. I was turned on to it after my book was published and was super-impressed.

Thanks again, KMO! I had a lot of fun chatting.

Thanks for this. I have to admit I don't have time to sit and listen to an hour-long podcast very often, but this one got my attention for some reason. I've been meaning to reread World War Z and I may get this book too.

I'm pretty sure it was the subject matter. The last time I remember you posting a comment in response to a podcast it was for the Zombie Apocalypse Christmas Special.

I haven't read World War Z. If you've been meaning to re-read it, then I guess it's a keeper. You directed me to an online zombie novel a few years back. It had a kind of gritty, detail oriented, nuts and bolts realism to it. Is that WWZ?

I'm tempted by this one:

Thank you for listening and commenting.

World War Z is written by Max Brooks. The online one was different... and I don't know if I could find it again.
