Through the Aftermath Episode 25 In this 25th episode of Through the Aftermath, Shawn and Jonathan discuss the movie "Doomsday". Did they love it? Hate it? Listen and find out!

We also read a bit of fan mail, discuss the news and talk about what we've been up to.

Despite us ranting on about The Road not being shown in our area, I actually saw the movie after this episode was recorded. I'm sure we'll discuss it in more detail on the next episode, but it's a powerful movie!

Through the Aftermath Episode 24 In this 24th episode of Through the Aftermath, Shawn and Jonathan discuss the myths and facts behind the Chernobyl disaster. They also dive into the first person shooter game "S.T.A.L.K.E.R." and how well it depicts Chernobyl after a fictional second nuclear disaster there.

If you'd like to see some recent pictures of the disaster site, check out this link. It shows dozens of photos from a tour of the area, and how the surrounding towns are actually starting to rebuild, more than 20 years later.

Look for the next episode to be about the movie Doomsday.

Through the Aftermath Episode 23 Hey folks, sorry for the delay between episodes, but you wanted epic intros, right?! Well you got one this time, that's for sure.

Episode 23 comes to you with special guests Brad and Heero from the Fallen Earth LifeNet podcast. We talk a whole lot about Fallen Earth, but also the post-apoc influences that got these two fine podcast hosts where they are today.

We also throw out a bit of news, and did I mention there's an epic intro? Yep. There is.

Next episode will be about the Chernobyl disaster.

Through the Aftermath Episode 22 In this 22nd episode of Through the Aftermath, the topic is The Postman. This covers both the 1985 novel by David Brin, and the 1997 movie starring Kevin Costner. Which one did we like better? What were our favorite parts of each? Why are these two works of media even named the same?!

We also read an email from Jason which points us towards Operation Able Archer, and how important it was to what could have been a full-scale nuclear war, in much the same style as the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Next episode will be with the guys from LifeNet, the Fallen Earth podcast.

Through the Aftermath  Episode 21 In this 21st episode of Through the Aftermath, Shawn and Jonathan read a handful of emails from the listeners. If you still haven't had an email read on the show, sit tight as we have a handful left to get to.

Next episode will be about The Postman, both the movie and the book. We'll compare the two and let you know what you're missing if you've only seen the movie.

The TTA site and forums are down right now as the result of a hack, but they will hopefully be back faster than the last time the forums were down! These raiders are persistent, I tell ya.

Through the Aftermath Episode 20

In this episode, Shawn and Jonathan discuss George Romero's Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Tom Savini's directorial remake in 1990. They discuss the plot, favorite (and least favorite) parts, sequels, the upcoming CGI version and more.

If you've never seen any of these movies, you might want to check them out before listening to this episode. The original has fallen out of copyright, so it is free on several websites, such as Google Video.

Through the Aftermath Episode 19

Shawn has returned from Dragon*Con, and he comes bearing gifts! Gifts of story! Join Shawn and Jonathan as they discuss last weekend at the Atlanta, GA fan event and the cool post-apoc stuff Shawn saw. There were costumes, panels and even some drinks with the Fallen Earth devs.

They also read through some email, so it doesn’t get too backed up, and mention the fact that the forums have been reborn! Rejoice!

Through the Aftermath  Episode 18

You know we’ve been waiting a long time for this episode, but the Fallen Earth post-NDA edition is finally here. Shawn and Jonathan talk about their favorite and least favorite parts of this upcoming post-apocalyptic MMO based on a rating system for each category. These include graphics, performance, social features, combat and much more.

While the open beta will be ending tomorrow (Tuesday, Sept 1st), the game is slated for launch on September 15th. Also remember, these impressions of the game are based on a pre-launch beta state.

If you’ve seen District 9, you may recognize Jonathan’s epic 10-minute intro skit. If not, go see it!

Our next episode should be the post-DragonCon show, so look for that in about 2 weeks.

The show is broken into a spoiler-free first half and then a no-holds-barred spoiler-filled second part where we talk all about the plot, including our favorite and least favorite parts.

We also discuss some news, including Fallen Earth's newly announced release date and Fallout 3's Mothership Zeta which released earlier this week.

Keep in touch with us via the Facebook page, email, Twitter or our forum (which is still broken at the moment, but at least it's up! Hoping to get it fixed all the way soon)
