EATING BRAINS IS THOUGHT TO BE A ZOMBIE THING! And our culture today is obsessed with Zombies, almost to a fault. But where did the idea of the zombies come from? And did they always have an association with eating brains? In this October episode of Canary Cry Radio, Basil and Gonz discuss the topic of the brain eating dead, Zombies. The history of Zombies goes back to the Haitian Mythology associated with Voodoo to create human slaves. But over the years, Zombies evolved from an isolated mythological phenomenon, to a westernized cultural staple in entertainment media. The transition was slow and steady but has increased exponentially in the last two to three decades. The reason for such a rise in interest could be because of the rise in dark spirituality as we head towards the end of days. And what about the Bible? Does it have anything to say about Zombies? It would seem that according to the modern definition of Zombies, there might be. Basil and Gonz also cover some other interesting peripheral topics in this episode such as cannibalism, mind control via drugs, a fungus that actually kills insects but brings them back to life, and a whole lot more. Parental discretion is advised for this episode since there were discussions that involved violence and gruesome acts.
