Episode 151: Teaching Zombies It's time for our annual check up with the Doctor of the Dead to take the pulse of the zombie genre. Arnold T. Blumberg uses zombies to teach media literacy and critical thinking. He's also just written a geeky, well-researched history of the zombie, "Journey of the Undead." Blumberg talks about zombie films to look forward to -- such as the Christmas zombie musical "Anna and the Apocalypse" -- as well as explores various incarnations of zombies ranging from voodoo zombies controlled by others to the somnambulist Cesare in "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" to how there is a line from "Night of the Living Dead" to "Get Out."
