Fans have been weighing in with their thoughts about the new Walking Dead season 5 trailer that debuted at Comic-Con in San Diego, but what about the cast and producers themselves? What do they have to say about it? After the awesome experience of watching them watch it on a monitor while backstage at their panel, I asked Team Walking Dead their thoughts later when they stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) studio at the convention, and now you can hear the entire conversation by clicking on the audio player icon below.

Joining us were none other than cast members Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, and Michael Cudlitz, along with executive producer Scott M. Gimple and co-executive producer Denise Huth. So what do they make of the clip, in which, according to Cudlitz, “it certainly looks like we’re heading to DC” to find a cure for the zombie outbreak? It seems the cast has been getting a kick listening to fans hypothesize as to what it all means. “The theories are fantastic,” says Gurira.

So exactly how much did Gimple stress about putting the trailer together, especially when “every single thing in the first episode is a spoiler,” according to Huth? Listen in to find out. And you’ll also get to hear Reedus, Yeun, Cohan, Cudlitz, and Gurira share their fondest Comic-Con memories as well as the debut of “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Michonne.” Plus, who freaks out on set over the proper way to eat an Oreo? The answer can be found by clicking on the audio player below. And for more Walking Dead scoop, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.
