If you don't mind some story spoilers, this is a great podcast. I don't just say that because I'm in it. Well I mean, that's a huge part of it, but not all of it.

You can even swap them with your teammate if you please or just leave them hanging, but the latter is not recommended as co-op play is going to be a huge part of your survival. So remember that if your friend is driving and his (or her) screaming becomes uncontainable, please switch seats and take over the wheel. Friends don't let friends drive bloodlust.
