Zombies: A true story of Haitian Voodoo

September 3, 2017

In this episode we explore the true stories of Zombies of Haitian Voodoo culture, from French colonial rule to an exhaustive search for the source of a compound which could scientifically prove the creation of zombies by Ethnobotanist, Wade Davis.

Most of this story summarizes details from Davis' two books on the subject; "The Serpent and the Rainbow" and "Passage of Darkness" which I really highly recommend if you found this interesting. The first is a lighter read, whilst the second a little more academic, but both well worth your time.
