Vampire-obsessed Eric Nuzum talks about garlic as vampire repellent, drinking blood and other vampire lore. He points out that the vampire myth was created because of the rabies scare during the 19th century, which caused those afflicted to foam at the mouth and bleed.
Nuzum is the author of The Dead Travel Fast: Stalking Vampires from Nosferatu to Count Chocula and spends his days at National Public Radio.
