This episode is a minisode. The TLDR of it is that a family emergency sent Dan on a 1600 mile impromptu roadtrip last week, and there was no time to record a new episode.

We're sorry for this unplanned super short episode, but we wanted everyone to know we will be back at it again next week. Thank you all for hanging in there while we catch up.

Speaker 1:

Welcome to the Zombie Book Club, the only book club where there's no book and I'm the zombie I'm Dan and where there's no book and I'm the zombie I'm Dan and I'm a zombie today.

Speaker 2:

And I'm Leah, and today's episode is really just an opportunity for me to give y'all a very great big Canadian apology, what we are most known for in our nationality. So here I am. What happened? Well, I have to first say I'm sorry, oh, and I'm not sorry, sorry, I am sorry. Is it different, sorry versus sorry, which is an article of clothing in my opinion? Oh, that is different, yeah. So this is not the episode y'all wanted to hear and it's not the episode we wanted to make, and we had a bit of a family emergency. Yeah, it's been chaos the last two and a half weeks. Are we going to talk about the emergency.

Speaker 2:

It's up to you.

Speaker 1:

Do you want to talk?

Speaker 2:

about the emergency. Okay, why don't you tell them the story of why we're going to just have a super short episode today?

Speaker 1:

Oh, my God, you know what, like, I feel like it was like two weeks ago or maybe it was longer, but I felt like we were so far ahead, we had so many episodes we were ready to to go, and it's like, as long as everything keeps going this way, we'll never miss a week and um, and then things didn't go that way for two weeks in a row, which was enough to fuck us up um, I forget what happened the first week because my memory isn't that long, but I remember what happened last week.

Speaker 1:

that was a more important one. Yeah, so my, my brother, simon, he's, he's moving up here from georgia and he takes off from Atlanta in his car and he's going along and then bang, his car explodes. And that was in Virginia, and at the time that I find this out I'm at work dealing with the tire of my dump truck falling off and I was going to leave straight from work and just go to virginia, but I decided maybe it's best if I sleep first yeah, because he had already driven like 14 hours that day.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, and I'm glad I did, because, oh my god, I mean round trip like 1600 miles. Yeah, basically, I mean his, the timing chain on his car went so like it's dead, dead, forever dead yeah, it was surrendered to the mechanics dead.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and dan had to get up at like what, four o'clock in the morning the next morning. Yeah, drive 13 hours, including it was 15 to you 15, oh right, because there was traffic, traffic 15 hours on the way back sleep at the la quinta put all of simon's shit into our truck which, shockingly, he packed his toyota corolla so well that he had to leave some things behind yeah, so much stuff in a toyota corolla that it didn't all fit in a toyota to come yeah, and I also want to point out he has a large dog and a cat in this scenario, so pretty impressive but more if there are less beings in the car so why we're not doing a full episode today is really.

Speaker 2:

I mean, that happened. We were planning on batch recording. Um last weekend, the weekend before that, something came up. That is a little more personal I don't want to bring up, but it happened and so that uh I had a mental health day, oh thank you. Thank you for you. Yeah, I didn't want to say that for you.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I appreciate that it was. It was not a good me.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

I was having a rough time.

Speaker 2:

It's been a hard couple of weeks over here. And then the reason why we're not doing a more detailed recording today, which, by the way, this is coming out in less than 12 hours. No, uh, yeah, it's coming out tomorrow. Um, from when we're recording, um, for months, molly, so I'm gonna go to have some episodes ready to go.

Speaker 2:

that was the plan we would have been like, typically, if nothing had happened the previous two weekends, we probably would have had at least four or five, yeah, in the bank, but, um, we have none. So, uh, this is it. We're sorry. We are gonna get back on our recording train next weekend. In fact, that's gonna be our. Our focus next weekend is to just rest and record, record and rest. We've got some fun things coming up for you. This is episode 48.

Speaker 2:

Episode 49 is going to be about Fallout. I've been obsessed with it. Cannot wait to talk to you about it. There's zombies in Fallout. There are there's ghouls in Fallout, and then we're going to have our episode 50, which will be really fun and involve some never before heard, um, evil magic chicken zombie skits. It will have the drawing for the evil magic chicken zombie clucks, which unfortunately we're not playing today because, uh, we're not ready to produce that right now, but we will play that. The last ones that we've gotten on the episode 50, and they, you will all count. So if you've been waiting to hear your motherfucking clucks, they're on their way and you are in the running.

Speaker 1:

I don't know why there's any clucking happening.

Speaker 2:

For those who are new yeah, what if they're just like why are they clucking? You need to go back and listen to ConPlan 888 episode. I forget what number it is, but if you search Zombie Book Club, conplan 888, you'll find it. And all of the evil, magic chicken, zombie stuff will make sense again.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, but in the meantime, I think the other thing I would love to ask you all to do is, if you have not yet, go check out the Mr Guy zombie hunter Kickstarter. It's happening right now. It's only got another couple of weeks before it closes. Yeah, shout out to Mr Guy guy. Yeah, mr guy, do, do, do mr guy. Yeah, it's a great, great theme song. Um, you can check it out. Great people made it. Yeah, jl and lindsey are amazing people, and I really want this kickstarter to kick ass because I'm excited for all the things that we've pledged for. Yeah, um, it's the final kickstarter for the, the finale trilogy arc that's coming out. So go to kickstarteroneshipresscom and check that out.

Speaker 2:

And the only other thing I have to say for you is that episode 55, we are talking about the Remaining, and I know that Ollie has at least read a lot of it. Shout out to Ollie Eats Brains. Yeah, curious if anybody else has been reading it. What you think about it. I did. Well, you don't count, we get your opinion in like seven episodes. Yeah, we know you like it, otherwise we wouldn't be doing it. And just a quick thank you. I've had so many great conversations with folks the last few weeks especially, a lot of new folks have been reaching out. If you've reached out and I haven't responded to you yet, just remember that we are ourselves zombies and are the shuffling kind when it comes to responding to email especially, and now you understand extra why. Maybe we've been slow the last little while yeah, because I am a zombie right now.

Speaker 2:

Yeah the good news is is that I had said there was a cut off for entering the giveaway for the evil magic chicken zombie t-shirt, which you can find the link to in the show notes. But because we didn't do that today, uh, you actually have one more a little less than a week. If you get me your clucks by friday, the 14th, eastern time, 5 pm I don't know what that is, where y'all are if you get them here at 5 pm, june 14th, they will be included. We've got a few really great ones I'm excited to share with y'all and in the meantime, you can give us a phone call at 614-699-0006.

Speaker 1:

You know, there's like definitely one person who's been putting it off to the last minute. That's like had like a huge amount of anxiety, and then they were like, oh, thank God it was put off, just like it was like a, like a, an exam, or like a paper they had to turn in, yep, and they're like, oh, I've been saved.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, no, you, you get a. You have an extension. Yeah, you can put it off. Not guaranteed. Not guaranteed. You're going to get an a because the only a is getting the giveaway t-shirt. And you can also email us at zombie book club podcast at gmailcom. And if you feel nervous to cluck on a public podcast, I don't blame you. You don't need to share your name. Just send it to me in an email or let me know at the end and that you don't want it on. You don't want to be named in the podcast. Um, in the meantime, don't forget to subscribe. Rate review give us a five store five store five stars for the world's shortest episode.

Speaker 2:

We love y'all. We'll be back in full force next week, barring the zombie apocalypse yeah, I hope you're doing good yeah, anybody else gone on a road trip.

Speaker 1:

They're still tired from it a week later because they didn't have a time to rest, because they've been working.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, dan plus hours when I say dan has like basically devolved into an amoeba level organism. I was actually going to come and record this myself and it was going to be even shorter, and then last minute it seemed like and I was like, but what if I did it too?

Speaker 1:

leah, what if I was there?

Speaker 2:

well, this is the most sentences you've made that made any sense. Yeah, since you really, honestly, all week, when you come after work, you've been like just he's like like a zombie. Yeah, dan's been a zombie. All the work has been sucking your life out of you, unfortunately, I can't wait to quit this fucking job.

Speaker 1:
