There are multiple types of collectibles in Dead Rising 4, but for our money, the ‘Undead Gospel’ podcast is the most amusing. Finding these unlocks new entries in the ‘Podcast’ collectible list — there are a total of 12 to grab. Because there are so few, we’re also including the newspaper locations. They’re both worth it, and not just for the PP boost you get for finding them. Each newspaper reveals a hidden locations, giving clues you’ll want to explore to unlock new blueprints and other rewards.

You’ll actually get a chance to meet the voice behind ‘Undead Gospel’ as you delve into Old Town outside of Willamette Mall. She isn’t quite the same loudmouth radio personality she comes across in her podcast, but if you want to earn 100% completion, make the Undead Queen (and her 512 followers) happy by grabbing these collectibles.
