There’s no denying the soaring popularity of podcasts these days: storytellers on "This American Life," celebrities on "WTF with Marc Maron" and news and politics on "Pod Save America" are just a handful of thousands of podcasts that keep listeners coming back week after week.

Four years ago, Somerset residents Dave Solo, his wife, Liz, and her sister, Christina Camara, delved into their own podcast, "Walker Nation" covering all aspects of the horror genre from zombies to old school ghouls. Since then, their love of horror has grown into a business, appearances at national conventions, projects with Universal Orlando Resorts, and more.

The first podcast was an interview with Fred Williamson from the film “Dusk to Dawn,” and this week, the trio will celebrate their 200th "Walker Nation" podcast with a live broadcast on Wednesday, Aug. 15, at 7:30 p.m. Here’s what Dave Solo has to say about "Walker Nation" as he celebrates the milestone 200th podcast:

What do you have planned for the 200th "Walker Nation" podcast?

We're going to invite all of our listeners (and a few special guests) to join us live for a look back at the past 200 shows. We're also going to spin the "Walker Wheel" and give away some amazing prizes from our sponsors!

Who do you have on your radar for future podcasts this year?

We're going to jump right back into “The Walking Dead” when it returns, cover “Fear The Walking Dead,” continue our ICONS and Head-to-Head Horror series, and plan some new stuff too.

As you look back over 200 podcasts, which one was your all-time favorite?

Personally, I loved the two shows with my kids ("Family Affair" and "Kids Love IT"). The girls loved our "Ghostbusters" show, "Fantastic Films," and "F'N Clowns!"

What are some of the other favorites and why?

I love the shows where we talk about horror. "The Walking Dead" saw a huge boost in popularity and became a pop culture phenomenon, but at our heart...we're a horror podcast. Our series on Universal Classic Monsters is my favorite series for sure, especially Frankenstein!

How has the overall direction of the podcast fit with your original intent when you started it in 2014?

We've kind of made it up as we've gone along. I wanted to podcast and roped the other two into joining me so I didn't have to do it alone. I also wanted to show that females enjoy horror too and no matter who you are, where you're from, or what your background is... horror is amazing. We wanted to talk about TWD and horror movies. We had no idea it would turn into this!

What were some of the big lessons you learned along the way?

Podcasting is free to do and free to listen to. Never take your audience for granted or rest on your laurels. Give your audience something new constantly. This has been life changing and we appreciate every member of the "Walker Nation Army." They've become family to us and it helps when negative reviews roll in to have your core audience defend and encourage you to continue.

Have you had a cringe-worthy interview you wish you could do over?

Lol! I interviewed Amy Steele from "Friday the 13th: Part 2" and I called her Amy Lee in the intro. I wanted to drop the mic and run!

Who did you look to for guidance when you were starting out?

I didn't need technical guidance, as I've always been around broadcasting. From a philosophical and even financial standpoint, my Dad (Vic Solo) has always been my biggest supporter and my business partner.

Do you now have other podcaster hopefuls coming to you for advice?

Every day! I like to help those starting out, but there aren't enough hours in a day to help every single one. I'll give some quick advice, but I've actually started consulting for more in-depth guidance.

Do you see the direction of the podcast changing in the future?

We don't really look at it that way. We're three people who get together once a week to talk about horror — that's really it. "Walker Nation" is, was and will always feel like friends sitting around, having a few beverages and talking horror with honest opinions.

The big question for podcaster hopefuls: Can you make a living doing a podcast?

You can make a living doing anything that you just have to figure out how!

If you could go back in time and interview someone who’s no longer alive who would it be and why?

George Romero! Hands other answer!

Last time we talked, you were working on a yet-to-be disclosed project for Universal Orlando Resorts. Can you reveal what that’s about now?

My lips are still sealed!
