The voice you hear on the radio broadcasts in the mind of Tyreese is actually the voice of Andrew Lincoln, in his natural accent. What we are hearing, most likely, is not reports about the zombie outbreak, but sadly, radio reports about the Rwandan genocide.
“At least 68 citizens of the republic have been killed in four deadly attacks along the main coastal district. The group has continued their campaign of random violence, moving across the countryside unfettered
with the republic’s military forces in disarray … There have been
troubling reports of cannibalism having broken out in refugee camps
along the republic’s transportation corridor. And despite the string of
victories by rebel forces, there are disturbing reports of increasing
the brutality of their tactics including the wholesale destruction of
villages, burning down local prisons, targeting of civilians, and even
the widespread mutilation of children and young mothers.”
So here’s where you make a choice. What if you could have that power? Now? In every generation, one Slayer is born, because a bunch of men who died thousands of years made up that rule. They were powerful men. This woman…is more powerful than all of them combined.
Friendly Reminder: Andrew was lying when he said that Anya sacrificed her life to save his. He was romanticizing Anya’s death to make Xander feel better, using his storytelling skills to help rather than for his own amusement.
I don’t think that Andrew was ever particularly evil. I think he just wanted some excitement in his life and Warren’s Trio gave him that. I also think that seeking refuge in Buffy’s household suited him more as then he was in an exciting environment without being the bad guy.

Anya and Andrew used to be my OTP.
Now, I can see them as more of twins. I mean, come on. The names, for one. Both
blondes. But it goes a bit deeper. Anya is very honest, to the point of
bluntness, while Andrew lies and tells stories near constantly. They have this
odd opposing balance that I just love.
