Episode 216 - CNI One Shot! We Will Bury You with Brea Grant ("Daphne" on Heroes), Zane Grant and the CNI Chorale As everyone knows, the zombie apocalypse utopia has happened. Our zombie overlords have allowed a large part of the population to survive and continue in society. Thankfully, Comic News Insider, now Zombie News Insider, is here to stay! Good thing the zombie rulers were big fans of Brea Grant on Heroes as well! They allowed us to play the interview that Jimmy did with her and her brother Zane about their upcoming zombie comic, We Will Bury You. Brea and Zane also recorded several songs inspired by their favorite zombie films that you will hear throughout the episode. And, they ordered us to make up a few songs of our own based on their comic. Zombies love their musicals! News includes zombie vegetarians, the return of Helena Markos, and jerky humans.

Episode 211 - CNI One Shot! Doctor Who/Torchwood Round Table with David Tennant, Russell T. Davies, Julie Gardner & Euros Lyn That's right! More San Diego Comic-Con coverage. Jimmy sat on 2 round tables with the creative team behind Doctor Who and Torchwood. The 10th Doctor himself, David Tennant, was also in attendance to answer questions. There were about 7 other reporters asking questions, so there's some great stuff in there! Also, apologies for the sound troubles. Apparently, one or two of the reporters had their cell phones on that RANG during the interviews which caused interference. You will hear some buzzing on occasion. Couldn't be removed and no way to control. Sorry folks! But, hang in there for some good Doctor Who/Torchwood goodness!
