Pennoni Honors College PresentsPop, the Question: "Zombie Apocalypse" (S4–E28)

Zombies emerge as one of popular culture's great symbols of anxiety, unrest, and crisis in the face of public health. More than ever, in a pandemic, zombie films conjure up the power of human instinct, strength, logic, and empathy. For this special episode, Host Dr. Melinda Lewis welcomes returning guest Dr. Kevin Egan to lead a team of outstanding Drexel University faculty through a discussion on what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse and whose expertise will best equip them to lead the cause.
