Hey! Where's the Podcast?

Uh, we had a slight weapons malfunction, but uh... everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?

What?

Oh, all right. We had to bail Towerbot out of customs from his latest international incident, or pay the impound fee — it's really a grey area — but anyway, mistakes were made. Apparently, Towerbot had one all ready to go for us. It's file name was "revenge," but I don't see a problem with it…

This Week, we look at a series of drug-fueled zombie attacks, and then try to make sense of teens looking to Twilight the vampire for the answer to life's big questions, one of which being why are sparkling vampires better than regular vampires?
