Scifi & the Sutras: Episode Three

It’s here! Episode Three is all about zombies. If I had included all the interesting information I learned about zombies, zombie film history, and the intersection of public fears and what zombies represent in cinema, this episode would have been an hour long. As it stands, I wanted to share some extra links with this one. Take a look at the below as a primer for the origin of pop culture zombies, and the culture and folklore they were appropriated from. It’s definitely worth a read.
