FROM THIS EPISODE

book.jpgGothicka: Vampire Heroes, Human Gods, and the New Supernatural (Harvard University Press)
Victoria Nelson writes about the rise of the supernatural into mainstream popular culture. Vampires and werewolves, no longer monsters, have become heroes. We discuss the allure of the horror genre for a generation that feels technology has failed them. Are zombies infected with a post-technological autism that occurs when the grid crashes? Does the popularity of these creatures express a longing for spirituality?
