A deadly virus rages across the world. The U.S. is in shambles. Despite the imminent threat, humans have started to turn on one another. And in other news, this week Paul and Arlo are talking about Naughty Dog’s highly anticipated zombie apocalypse sequel The Last of Us Part II. Joining them for a discussion of this brutal, beautiful game is none other than Alex Jonestown Massacre guitarist Kenn Edwards. The gang discusses how the game departs from its predecessor, the incredible acting of Ashley Johnson and Laura Bailey, how writer-director Nate Druckmann forces the player to confront the consequences of their actions, and more. Also, Arlo didn’t actually play it! Plus, Kenn tells us about AJM’s new album Run-On Death Sentence and his Lost rewatch podcast Pushing the Button.

Next: there’s hope for our ass after all. Sarah Kosheff joins us to discuss the filmed performance of Hamilton.
