Welcome to Boulder Free Radio Zone: The Stand your dedicated after-show podcast for the limited series on CBS All-Access. For the next 9 weeks, Paul, Sheila, and Inez will be breaking down this new limited series starring James Marsden, Alexander Skarsgard, Whoopi Goldberg, Greg Kinnear and so many more in a deep bench of seasoned actors. Will you join us as we make our Stand?

Paul, Sheila, and Inez sit down to discuss the explosive Episode 6, “The Vigil.” 

Holy Buckets of Blood, Bobby Terry! We’ve journeyed through the pledge portion of the story and now we have arrived at the turn in Boulder. Bombs are going off, literally. Over in New Vegas, Randall’s becoming more deadly and we come face to face with his true personality and potential plans, bringing in the Trashcan Man. 

Afterward, stick around for our exclusive interview with Chris Fisher, director for episodes 5 and 6!!  Chris took us behind the scenes on how the episodes came about creatively, what it was like to film against a ticking pandemic clock unrelated to the pandemic in the story, and how it has affected production. Chris talks about how New Vegas was brought to life in all its glorious debauchery. And so much more!
