Surviving the 7-Upocalypse
Episode 18 — Released Mar 18 2017
Released in 1968, George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead both created and defined the modern zombie archetype. Within the genre lay potential to explore complex social issues (racism, consumerism & post-colonialism to name a few), pose questions about human nature, and to examine the many possible outcomes of a society facing total collapse.
Now, in 2017, the zombie prepper community exists as a real-world exploration of the above mentioned themes, unbeknownst to it’s participants. Racism, bizarre consumer habits, the fall of online societies, and a study in regional linguistic variation in the United States. Also they have really cool like guns and knives and stuff.
This week, Extra Credit blames Obama.
