Welcome to Zombie Popcorn!

Zombie Popcorn is a mixed bag of entertainment, netcasts, and politics.

We offer a series of shows (podcasts/netcasts) and some one off programs, which you can read more about in the tabs above, on a variety of subjects.  In addition to the shows we offer, the Zombie Popcorn blog covers everything from 3D, horror, pop culture, politics, music, and movies, including contests and giveaways.

As always thanks for visiting Zombie Popcorn and if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, rants, or want us to review, interview and talk about your projects – all you have to do is reach out and let us know. You can contact us here.

The Zombie Popcorn logo was design by The LastDeviant – Chris Garcia.

Zombie Popcorn has been broadcasting live and pre-recorded shows since 2009 (Zombie Popcorn started in 2007).

Over the years, we found that people want a variety of formats to enjoy what we produce, so we offer both video and audio, so you can pick the format that works best for you. Some formats are only in video because audio only just doesn’t work, like our gaming and Virtural Reality live streams.

Zombie Popcorn’s Stories
Everyday at 8am and 10pm
For as long as I can remember I have always enjoyed the last moments of the day.  You know, the moments where you are laying in bed drifting in and out of sleep while thinking of the world around you.  The act of drifting off to sleep is not the part that I enjoyed the most –  it was the thoughts in the final moments of being awake that carried over into my sleep that brought excitement to my life.

I would find myself thinking about the random person that I bumped into during the day – the person who told me their life story or something really odd.  While laying there thinking about their story it would open my mind up to other realms of their life and to my own because I would want to know more about what they shared with me.

The only thing that would make me sad about their stories was that when I woke up in the morning and continued throughout my day I would forget about some of the details.  So, I decided to start recording peoples stories and compiling them into a series to be shared with the world.  I teamed up with good friend, Paul Casper because we both share a love for what we call ‘Story time’.
Our dream is to travel the country and interview people we meet and on the way share these stories with you.    Since we are not rich and our travel plans are limited we had to come up with a plan to fill in the gaps between our travels. This is  Zombie Popcorn’s Stories

Coalesce
Every day at 2pm
Coalesce which means ‘to unite so as to form one mass, community, etc.,’ is a show that brings two unlikely groups together, an anarchist atheist and an evangelical Christian.

The New Architects
Every day at 9pm
It is the goal of ‘The New Architects to seek out individuals and groups who work, in their everyday lives, to bring forth the ideas of what is defined as Anarchy and open up a dialogue between people in hope to inspire others.

This Non-Religious Life
Every day at 6am
This Non-Religious Life highlights particular aspects of religious faith and the irreligious movement.

One-off Interviews and Shows
Every Sunday at 11:00pm and Every Thursday at 12am
This is where we put the interviews and the one off events we do, that doesn’t fall into the format of the other shows. For example, when Zombie Popcorn was the Official Podcast of Marscon, the largest Sci-Fi festival in Virginia. Or when I interviewed Pennie Opal Plant, Native-American environmental justice activist, with Pachamama Alliance.

ttdThe Talking Dead is apart of the Zombie Popcorn Netcast series and  is a  companion to the Zombie Popcorn Blog.
Hosted by Jason Bayless, Paul Casper,  and Bob Price and guarantee to take you on a wild ride into the world of cinema, stereoscopic 3D, tech, music, and places I am sure you never wanted to go.

This Non-Religious Life highlights particular aspects of religious faith and the irreligious movement.

the gangThe show contains interviews with apologists/secularists, discussions about recent events including religious claims, reviews of books/documentaries/debates and all things free-thought, secularism and atheism/agnosticism related. Starting with the most common religion in the US, Christianity, the show will explore the values, texts, and claims made by various denominations.    Over time the show will move on to explore a variety of world religions including the claims of Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, New Age/Wicca, and Hindu beliefs. All aspects of the religious claims are examined from a secular perspective to highlight key issues, canons, and of course, the many absurdities.

This Non-Religious Life is an extension of the Zombie Popcorn netcast, hosted by  Ken Montville, Jason Bayless and Bob Price.

The New Architects is a project of a new structure to give a new light on an old subject – Anarchy.

theNewArchitectsLogoOver the years, the teachings and actions of those who believe have been removed from the mainstream thought and covered with misinformation and/or labeled as ‘punk’.

The many levels of Anarchy reach further than one culture or lifestyle. There is a rich, deep history that is being lost along with the works of individuals and groups, from around the world, who strive to improve their lives and the lives of the people (and animals) around them.

It is the goal of ‘The New Architects’ to seek out individuals and groups who work, in their everyday lives, to bring forth the ideas of what is defined as Anarchy and open up a dialogue between people in hope to inspire others.

As the definition of what anarchy is will differ from person to person, it is not our goal to give a definition but to give strength and inspiration to those who work to improve/replace a system that is broken.

The New Architects are individuals and communities that make a difference in the way we view the world.

The people behind the idea of this show are;

Thomas Barnett is an American singer-songwriter born in Richmond, Virginia. He is best known for being the singer for the melodic hardcore band Strike Anywhere.

Jason Bayless is the founder of Zombie Popcorn and several other related projects. He has a long history of activist work, including but not limited to, animal rights, human rights, earth rights. To read more you can visit Jason’s profile. Jason is vegan and a strong supporter of anyone who is working for a better world. 

Coalesce, which means ‘to unite so as to form one mass, community, etc.,’ is a show that brings two unlikely groups together, an anarchist atheist and an evangelical Christian.  The goal is to work on uniting on issues they have in common, in hopes to overcome some of the worlds biggest issues – Human trafficking.

CoalescebannerThey will challenge each other and their world view, to find a solution that everyone can work with to help free  the 2.5 million people who are in forced labor, the sex-slave industry (including sexual exploitation), and all the other levels of human trafficking.    What happens when an evangelical Christian and an anarchist atheist get together to try and solve the world’s problems? Tune in to find out.
