Hornsby goes full throttle on Daryl and the gang, and Pamela has some trouble at home.

Hey, Survivors! We have finally recorded this episode, and here it is. It’s so good to be back and catching up since Tales, so you can expect things to get back on schedule with the rest of this final season of The Walking Dead. This was such a great episode, and as we hoped, they are starting Part 3 as intense as ever. I can’t believe that this is all coming to an end, but we are just happy to enjoy this ride with you listeners. 

A note on a few things we are covering Tales of the Walking Dead Episode 5 on this podcast and will cover Episode 6 on the next one. We didn’t want to spend a lot of time on these episodes, but as a way to catch up, we wanted to cover the feedback you left as well as give a little of our own reactions. If you want to skip it, you can jump to the Chapter for Episode Discussion or the 30-minute mark in this episode, and that is where we start covering S11E17.

We want to start offering Patrons a real reason to stay on our Patreon and to get more people to become Patrons. As such, we are going to start experimenting with bringing you some new content that will really make it worth your while to be subscribed.

We are going to try offering Patrons early access to our regular episodes. These versions of the episodes will be less polished than the final version of the podcast, will largely be uncensored, may contain things we fix up in the final version (like when we speak over each other, awkward silences, etc.), content that we remove from the final version and may not have all of the sound effects mixed in properly (and in the case of this episode, doesn’t have the beginning and ending music mixed in at all).
