Is something taking over your brain? Zombified is a new podcast about how we are vulnerable to being hijacked by things that are not us. From microbes hijacking behavior, to humans influencing each other, to our brains being taken over by social media, we talk about why zombification happens, why we are susceptible to it, and what we can do about it. Hosted by Dr. Athena Aktipis, a Psychology Professor at Arizona State University and the founder of the Zombie Apocalypse Medicine Alliance, and co-hosted by zombie enthusiast Dave Lundberg-Kenrick, “Zombified” takes a radically interdisciplinary approach to the science of zombification. If you enjoy fresh brains, this podcast is for you!

Creative and fun!

I’ve been Zombified, you’ve been Zombified, we’ve all been Zombified! This podcast takes a creative spin on hot topics in evolutionary biology/psychology by introducing the idea of “zombification”... it is catchy, and I find myself now slipping this phrase in to casual conversation. Maybe more need to listen so they understand where I am coming from. ;)

This show is public science at its best.

Dr Aktipis is one of the most brilliant and creative scientists of our generation. And she has a gift for communication. You owe it to yourself to check out this podcast. It’s interesting, provocative, and educational. Not to mention entertaining. Download it.

Love it!

Your podcast is great! I love your style and your guests!

I really liked listening to your Clive podcast! I was wondering if you were able to do a podcast on how students across the United States become Zombified?
