Halloween Part 3: The Origins of Vampires and How Modern Media Changed the Folklore

In this week's episode of Better Than Human, Jennifer and Amber discuss the origins of vampires. In modern pop culture, vampires are generally pale, suave, sophisticated beings that feast on the blood of their victims in the dead of night. However, up until the 1800s, vampires were a far cry from how we see them today. Though they were not called vampires in ancient cultures, almost every European and Asian culture has their own vampiric folklore. Listen as Jennifer and Amber discuss the differences and learn how the modern interpretation evolved from these folklores. 

Also listen as the sisters give a PSA on safe, consensual sex, because education and the media do not emphasis safe sex enough. You always have the right to say no.
