Afraid of zombies? Heard about the coming zombie apocalypse? Have you watched the TV show The Walking Dead or ever seen a movie about Zombies (perhaps Zombieland or Dawn of the Dead)?
What is so fascinating about the undead? Why do many of us get a strange pleasure out of seeing a zombie get killed? In this episode I explore that strange part of ourselves which seems to enjoy watching the undead get really dead. If you’re interested in this topic and want to read about these ideas, check out the free sample chapter of my ebook based on this episode called Zombie Fascination. Fill out the form below.

[and]…because zombies are “already dead” we can be guilt free and gleefully watch them killed in every way possible no matter how grisly – vicariously aggressing against this substitute source of our fears with complete abandon.”
