An episode of "Board the Windows"
Carnival of Souls

Rising from a watery crash, our intrepid explorers of the zombie apocalypse Jon and Theron seek refuge in a desolate dancehall at the water's edge. Stumbling conveniently upon rusty podcast equipment and a TV, they discover Herk Harvey's 1962 independent proto-zombie flick, "Carnival of Souls."
