    All the narration means is that he wrote in the journal, not that he lives at the end.

    Remember, Kalani had a narration too. A good chunk of chapter 27, after he was dead.

That was a clutch engaging. There is no doubt in my mind of that.
    Honestly, the simplest explanation for Burt's drill is he started to drill with the clutch engaged, he pauses, moves it to the "drill" setting, and drills out the lock.

    I do that all the time when going from one part of a project to another using the same drill.

    There's nothing quite like a bullet to the brain to say "Hey seriously, cut that out!"

    Except for the fact we don't hear him change settings... sure. Seems legit. More likely it was a chance to showcase a new sound while telling the story, just happens to be a gross oversight on the part of the production team... I'm going to blame Blaire. We haven't blamed her for anything for a while. It's all your fault, Blaire. Get your shit together.

    I don't think we really need to argue about the realism of Burt drilling the lock any longer.... I mean really, what is the podcast about?

    Right now it's about Burt drilling into a lock. Honestly, there is so much shit on here about the meaning behind sounds, and birds, and tiny noises, throw away lines of dialogue suddenly achieve the deepest, most sinister connotations, tertiary characters are thrust into roles with more meaning than anyone actually above the line that it borders on insanity... and you're wanting to get off misuse of a sound effects cue*?! I might as well put a shotgun in my mouth now because this is going to turn bad fast.

    I get how important sounds are as it is an audio drama! But I'm not sure I see why the realism of drilling of the lock is such a focus, (don't think it could have some deeper meaning either) the story is about a zombie apocalypse after all!
    Also, it's such an awesome show, production team are amazing and yeah sometimes may be some slip ups but not sure of need to focus on them/berate them. We even get to listen to all their hard work for free.
    Just voicing my opinion!

    Enjoy!

    My point is: collectively we have spent far more man-hours on the most minute details of the show, and often at the expense of the performances given by the actors. We're more worried about the differences between an M16 being cocked, and an MP5. Was that a knife or a sword? Whose gasp was that? Was that a dog? Are those birds in the background? And on, and on. It feels like we're letting the little things get in the way of appreciating the acting. Just my feelings on the matter. I still blame Blaire.

    But surely that's what you've been doing by going on about the drill!?
    Personally I don't need to make all those little distinctions, between guns n whatever. But I guess like yourself, each person has their own specific interests in particular episodes and on the story as a whole. For example I guess that anyone who is Science-y will focus on the hospital n meds n machines etc... Mechanical stuff will be more interesting to people who understand it and so forth!!
    I liked the prison, courthouse, criminal side including appreciating Kelly as I study law!

    All in all, it's a certainty that we all think the acting/actors are freakin' awesome (in my American accent)!

    Peace out
