Mr. McKinney is also a police officer in San Antonio, Texas with expertise in disaster and emergency management.

Joe's professional police expertise and mastery of the zombie horror genre make his work uniquely exciting and compelling.

This makes for a great conversation as Chauncey and Joe discuss all things zombies in this week's episode of the podcast known asThe Chauncey DeVega Show

Joe and Chauncey talk about world building in speculative fiction, the challenges of managing the State's response to natural and other types of disasters, the chaos of a confused and frightened public, how a zombie outbreak would likely be responded to by the police and other authorities, fast versus slow zombies, chasing naked drunk suspects down the street, his approach to the craft of writing, and other related zombie goodness.

Chauncey also shares his thoughts on Freddie Gray and racism beat ambulance chasers, gives some respect to the Washington Post's Radley Balko, getting love from Mark "the Incredible Hulk" Ruffalo and the WWE's Paul Heyman on Twitter, the new Avengers movie, and surrendering to the necessity of wearing under eye concealer makeup.
