On this week’s Horror Podclass we are doing a deep dive into the brand new Blue-Ray release of the 2018 movie Overlord. This movie has everything: Nazis, zombies, motorcycles with sidecars, explosions, and jumping out of airplanes. It just doesn't really have much to say about the horrors of war or the nature of evil... but hey, that's OK. It is still a really fun movie. Plus, Tyler gives us a sneak peek at some of the cool features on the Blue-Ray disk.

Mike went back and did some research about the racial integration of the US Army and sure enough, racially mixed small units were most definitely not present during WWII. There was an entire Parachute Infantry Batallion, the 555th "Triple Nickel", made up of African-American soldiers. They didn't see combat during WWII, but you can read more about their history during WWII, The Korean War, and their integration into the 82nd Airborne Division after the war which paved the way for that Division to be the first integrated division in the US Army.
