WE Are SQUAWKING DEAD ...a podcast, pulverizing episodes of The Walking Dead UNIVERSE: The Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead, The Walking Dead: World Beyond... and so much more to follow!
We had a very pleasant chat with Bobbie Grace, AKA Ranger Samuels from Fear The Walking Dead. Our conversation with her reminded me a lot of our conversation with Peggy Schott, especially when it came to describing the feeling of belonging to a large ensemble versus a short film. And, is it any coincidence that they are both gingers? 👀
Something that probably should've happened a long time ago has finally arrived: our sit-down Jenna Elfman. We mainly discuss her process, which takes us on a journey through her acting life. As she guides us through the twists and turns throughout her career, while answering some fun(ny) questions along the way, we actually walk away with some fairly essential life lessons and go much deeper into her past than I ever thought we...
This episode really exhibits both the distinctions and the dark mirror parallels many of our characters have with one another, which has sincerely allowed us to take their totality into account. Should our characters be simpler? Should our heroes be super and our villains lean in? Tell us what you think!
It feels like we've been watching this season forever: as hard has it is to believe, we're nearing the end (which takes us back to the very beginning). We may have overanalyzed Dakota's motivations a little too much this episode, but it's allowed us to uncover some fascinating parallels in the process.
Introducing #JohnDorieSr: an almost #WhatIf version of #JohnDorie, had he been allowed to survive this rough world. What's terrific about this episode is that it provides tons of closure for everyone involved, which is super-duper rare in #TWDUniverse; I feel like we've been saying that a lot lately (that #FTWD, yet again, offers us something that we've never experienced).
Note: We're no longer including the Reactio...
This is, essentially, our way of attempting to channel our grief towards the loss of #JohnDorie, while reconciling our feelings towards Dakota (see: [Episode 132]). Both Dave & Rachael have some pretty big theories that involve #JohnDorieSr: But what do you think? Do you think we're onto something? Do you have theories of your own? Let's SQUAWK about it!
A simultaneously beautiful, heart-warming, and tragic episode: there's never been an episode quite like this one in #TWDUniverse. #GraceMukherjee's unborn child, Athena, literally fights for and saves Grace's life, ultimately resulting in Grace's miscarriage; however, the world Grace builds for a daughter, in which she has lived the life she will never have, is the most beautiful gift one isn't able to give or r...
#TheEndIsTheBeginning: We finally meet the cult that's been the backdrop since the 1st scene of the season premiere, 11 episodes in. We go into their motivations, the components that actually make them a cult, and outline the means by which they might just be the biggest threat in #TWDUniverse.

While recording [Episode 131] - covering Season6, Episode 10 of #FearTWD, "Handle With Care" - we veered off the rails of our usual episode breakdown into the territory of our overall feelings regarding Dakota. Normally, we would keep this discussion in our normal episode breakdown, but we ultimately decided to extract it and create a very short episode discussion around the topic instead. You'll soon see why we felt it...
FUEDING is the underpinning of this discussion, today: in a world where some semblance of harmony is necessary to jumpstart civilization, so too our podcast exhibited discord. We hashed out disagreements, challenged each others' positions, aired our grievances, and learned something along the way while rallying around a friend, rather than a common enemy.
Our heads are still spinning from the events of what was supposed to be the #MidseasonPremiere, as we try to piece together what exactly happened and, more importantly, their ramifications - both immediate and for the remainder of the season. As intended midseason premieres go, they did not skimp out on physical scenes, complete with a shoot out and gunslinger walk-off, a la #JuneDorie.
Therapy Circle? More like Group Therapy: all of us were affected by the tragedy of this episode (not just the death of #JohnDorie, but the unstoppable-force-meets-immovable-object of both his and Dakota's ideologies) and, by the end of this recording, we realized that this episode ended up being more of a love letter to our dearly departed than anything else... and that just made sense.
We're very proud to present our hour-long sit-down with the intelligent, sweet, and remarkable #AlexaNisenson. We had a lot of excellent fan questions prepared, with some very handy and complimentary questions provided by our Supporter-Backed audience members. We go through both the sweet and sour of Alexa's journey through #TWDUniverse and we all come out of it stronger for having done it.
On top of getting a better understanding of Negan, by way of Michonne's Jimson Weed trip earlier in Season 10 with "What We Become" (TWD 10x13), "Here's Negan" made it possible for us to complete the circle to explain his entire raison d'être -- and it's SO satisfying.
Two Rogues Diverged in a wood, and sorry they could not travel both and be one traveler. Long we stood and looked down both paths, as far as we could, to where each story bent in the undergrowth.
The Unedited Version of this Recording contains a raw #interview I did with Rachael on her road to appearing on #TalkingDead (that video, here: https://youtu.be/4nWB2UEmuOI). Download that recording now, support the #podcast, and be with u...
The ever-so-generous #PeggySchott sat down with us and discussed her TV, Film, and stage career, both past, present, and even upcoming. Most of the conversation revolved around the intersection of actors & film-makers in and around the Texas/Austin area, how that's influenced her opportunities, and how it all eventually lead to her winding up on #FearTheWalkingDead!
And here we thought we wouldn't have anything to talk about! In this Princess-centric episode, we go through the depths of her psyche by way of her assigned archetypes, and even find reasons to belly-laugh about some of the ideas we thought up... because, is this SQUAWKING DEAD episode even real? 👀
...one thing we know for sure: Watch #TalkingDead this Sunday!
Father Gabriel goes Next-Level Stoicism, while Aaron assumes the burden of hosting both his and the padre's soul. While reacting to the shock, drama, and some funnies, we still had a lot of questions that begged answering.
CHRIS, from BMNY DeadCast Live, is BACK after a very long hiatus (both from SQUAWKING DEAD and his own channel) and we're honored to be the ones to ease him back into online life after a heck of an annive...
We went through most of the hype, drama, and anticipation for this week's episode in last week's #podcast. Breaking down this episode has been quite the trip, as we discover how much consideration the writers and show-runner, #AngelaKang, has had for #DarylDixon's development for quite a while, now!
WE'RE BACK covering THE WALKING DEAD, again! In it's own weird way, #TWDx has been a reflection of where we are in society: It's the longest season of #TWD and has gone through quite the evolution. So it goes, this episode deals a lot with "rebuilding", but also "acknowledging" the past and reconciling the two.
