Zombies!

How we learned to stop worrying and love the zombie apocalypse.

Episode 182 | October 21, 2013

Michal Meyer and Robert Kenworthy talk to Deanna Day, an Institute research fellow, and Robert Hicks, director of the College of Physicians’ Mütter Museum about what zombies can tell us about apocalyptic diseases and medical cures.

With the popularity of post-apocalyptic storytelling at an all-time high, we decided to look into the science, history, and sociology behind these fears.
