Taste of the King is the 1st episode in the first season of The Midnight Gospel and the 1st episode overall in the series.


The simulator lands Clancy on a zombie-ravaged earth, where he meets the president, who's a fan of drugs and meditation. With Dr. Drew Pinsky.


The episode begins by following Clancy listening to the radio station, Pyro Moth. Clancy then tries to enter the simulation, Earth 1-9432 but fails after discovering the humans have all died due to an easily avoidable operator error. Upon finding this out, Clancy chooses another simulation, Earth 4-169, a simulation that has been undergoing a Zombie Apocalypse and chooses to follow the mayor, Glasses Man.

After entering the simulation, Clancy lands on top of Glasses Man and asks him if he can record him for his data-stream. The rest of the episode follows the duo talking about the philosophy of bad and good drugs, marijuana, mindfulness, and other things, while simultaneously running away from the zombies that are walking after them.
