ABOUT THE RESIDENT EVIL PODCAST

MORE THAN JUST A PODCAST

Rising from the ashes...

Rising from the ashes of The Horror is Alive’s short but highly successful “RPD Dispatch’ (potentially one of if not the first Resident Evil podcast created online), some staff previously from Project Umbrella embarked upon a similar venture. Originally pitched by Batman in late 2011, this new podcast format aimed to be slightly more serious in tone than its spiritual predecessor with a particular focus on the lore behind the series. Essentially the idea behind it at the time was to provide a platform for long-time community members to continue to contribute to Resident Evil debate when free time to enjoy the series and engage in endless forum debates became somewhat harder as we all got older and the general responsibilities of life took over. Each episode would focus on a particular game from the series, which would be comprehensively reviewed and analysed. Current Resident Evil news would be discussed and the podcast was always meant to be community focused, with guests chosen from respected members of the fan community rather than individuals directly associated with the series.

Launch of The Project Umbrella Podcast

It seemed fitting to launch such a venture in 2012, a pivotal year for Resident Evil with the series enjoying an unprecedented number of releases across various media formats, including Revelations, Operation Raccoon City, Damnation, Marhawa Desire and Resident Evil 6. The voyage launched in January of that year when Project Umbrella staff embarked upon a trial episode -dubbed ‘Episode Zero.’ After this successful early attempt, the team was bolstered to continue to try and record semi-regularly and, as of the beginning of 2020 are approaching 60 episodes and far, far too many hours to count in total. 

The Original Podcast Team

Combining the hosting charms and wit of Neptune, the take no nonsense extreme series knowledge of The Batman, and the dry biting barbs of Mr. Spencer – each podcast episode covers news, a topic or game in the franchise in detail, and every episode ends with a round of Neptune’s infamous Biohazard Quiz. Will the questions be good, be terrible, or will it all just descend into chaos and argument while someone googles the answer? You’ll have to tune in.

Crimson Head Elder Webmaster George Trevor has also frequently joined in and added his own ways to create both amazement and disbelief through his statements and also some of the more wacky things he pulls off from time to time.

The Podcast Grows

After starting off small and with community guests, much like the RPD Dispatch did, the core of the team formed solidly over time with the additions of such members as prolific and passionate fan and extensive lore and timeline writer S.T.A.R.S._Tyrant, and the crusty old website stalwart, Rombie, who has been following the franchises’ rises and falls since the beginning in the mid 90’s. Both started as guests and eventually made their way through to regulars on the podcast staff.

Mr. Spencer and Rombie had also harked back to the days of THIA’s RPD Dispatch and continued their own ways as it was. In fact there is never a lack of blunt comments from everyone on board as the team never hold back on their opinions, both positive and negative about the series, and will often come to some surprising conclusions about the games. Still, when you have a team of this many passionate fans who get stuck into the details of it all – the information will surprise you. The team are by far some of the geekiest geeks who ever geeked about Resident Evil, and you’re likely to learn plenty you won’t find elsewhere online.

Where The Resident Evil Podcast is today... enjoy!

You can track all our podcasts from 2012 onwards when the team were part of Project Umbrella. As the Podcast grew and the Project Umbrella website was unable to facilitate new uploads, the Podcast evolved to become its own independent entity, dubbed the project umbrella podcast.

as of december 2019 and in preparation for the launch of this website, the Podcast was re-branded into The Resident Evil Podcast. Still featuring the same team and lore content but under a new name to symbolise this next step.

We hope you enjoy our podcast. We are proud of how far we’ve come and firmly believe there is something here for everybody. Please feel free to join in the conversations. You can e-mail or tweet us, comment on our YouTube channel, or just straight up send in a call-in to the show as well. We also have a non-toxic discord server – all are welcome!. We’re happy to engage with all other strong fans from the community and share our love for the franchise.
