Podcast: Boardwalk Empire/Walking Dead (with Cory Barker and Andy Daglas)

As you may recall, a couple weeks ago I stopped by TV Surveillance to talk about Sons of Anarchy with friend of the blog Cory Barker. The conversation was a lot of fun, so we decided to do it again – this time, creating a podcasting Triforce with the help from our mutual friend Andy Daglas, who blogs over at The Vast Wasteland. (I’ll leave it up to the listeners to assign roles of Wisdom, Power and Courage to the three of us.)

Our topics were the second seasons of two of cable’s most talked-about series, Boardwalk Empire and The Walking Dead, and our emotional engagement or lack thereof with each show, inspired by Cory’s article on the former.  Despite some worry about how our first ménage à pod would work out, it turned into an excellent 90-minute conversation in which we dissected the multitude of sideplots and relationships in Boardwalk, complained about the character development and religious dialogue in Walking Dead, and also wound up going on several tangents on utterly unconnected shows.

As always, you can listen to that installment over at TV Surveillance or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.
