StarTalk Radio with Neil deGrasse Tyson explores The Zombie Apocalypse with zombie expert and r Max Brooks while also exploring the real life science behind modern viruses and plagues with Pulitzer winner Laurie Garret and epidemiologist Ian Lipkin
NY, NY (I-Newswire) June 12, 2013 - The Zombie Apocalypse is here-Parts 1 and 2 are available now. Join Neil deGrasse Tyson as he interviews the world's leading "authority" on zombies, Max Brooks, author of World War Z, the Brad Pitt movie attacking theatres soon. Max explains the difference between fast and slow zombies and why a cemetery is the safest place to be in a zombie apocalypse. He discusses "zombie science" - mathematical models of how a zombie virus would spread and a Harvard doctor's book on zombie brain patterns--and the best weapon to use against a zombie.
But the truly scary stuff comes from Dr. Ian Lipkin, professor of Epidemiology at Columbia and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Laurie Garrett. Dr. Lipkin discusses HIV, SARS, Ebola, Cholera, Influenza and a million viruses yet to be discovered. Laurie Garrett has seen infectious diseases around the world including Ebola, SARS and the Black Plague. She describes how governments and viruses don't mix, from the ongoing Russian biological warfare apparatus to terrorists targeting Polio aid workers in response to CIA activities to the SARS outbreak and its fatal cover up by the Chinese government.
