We are all “zombified” podcast

Zombified is a new podcast hosted by Arizona State University psychology professor Athena Aktipis and co-host Dave Lundberg-Kenrick, a zombie enthusiast. The podcast takes a look at how we are all “zombified” in one fashion or another, whether its microbes that hijack our behavior, social media or even puppies that manipulate how we act. We talk to Aktipis about zombification and her podcast.
