A very satisfying Episode!

For episode 146 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Kyle, LT, and Brian talk through The Walking Dead Season 11, Episode 18, titled A New Deal. Story by: Corey Reed and Teleplay by: Corey Reed & Kevin Deiboldt and directed by Jeffrey F. January. They also discuss Tales of The Walking Dead, Season 1, Episode 6, titled La Dona.

Pamela Strikes a Deal with the group, and Hornsby is in trouble. Plus, the satisfying ending.

Hey Hey, Survivors! Another great episode and a lot to talk about, and you all have a lot of great feedback to cover. We do cover the final episode of Tales of The Walking Dead, La Dona, so if you want to skip that, jump to the Chapter for Episode Discussion or the 30-minute mark in this episode, and that is where we start covering S11E18.

Next week things will be back on schedule (I Hope), so you can expect the podcast to be released at a regular time like last season. So, enjoy as Kyle, LT, and Brian discuss, in Ruthie’s words, a very satisfying episode of The Walking Dead, Season 11, Episode 18, titled A New Deal.

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).
