How do zombies and science connect? Very tenuously. “Zombie Jesus” creator and zombie connoisseur Robin Thompson is our fourth man this week. We discuss zombie-creating recipes, alleged Haitian zombie cases, zombiewalks, Cotard’s syndrome, nanobot zombies, rage virus, brain-modifying parasites and more. Plus, would a zombie plague succeed in becoming an apocalypse, and what would be your favourite weapon? PART ONE OF TWO!
The Cold War part two of two, with guest Allan Newell, includes: the nuclear arms race; Project: Ice Worm, LSD & the CIA; bungled Fidel Castro assassination attempts. Plus news and pop culture including Dr Strangelove, Manchurian Candidate, Thirteen Days, Our Man in Havana, THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING! THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING! and Red Dawn.
