About This Episode
This is an extended audio interview from “Extended Classic: Zombie Apocalypse (Part 1)” on StarTalk Radio with Neil deGrasse Tyson.
There’s no escaping the Zombie Apocalypse when Neil deGrasse Tyson interviews Max Brooks, the world’s leading “authority” on these nonexistent killers. The author of World War Z discusses fast and slow zombies and the latest in “zombie science” – mathematical models of how a zombie virus would spread and a Harvard doctor’s book about zombie brain patterns. You’ll find out why a cemetery is the safest place to be in a zombie apocalypse, and much more!
Please note that this is the raw interview, with minor edits made to the original interview by our producer to address recording issues, not content. Enjoy!
