Zombies, Vampires and Meth Dealers, Oh My!

Among the podcasts I listen to regularly is On Being--I preferred it's previous title Speaking of Faith--a program on religion, meaning, faith, etc..  Last week's show was particularly meaningful to me as a consumer of pop culture.  Diane Winston, who writes on pop culture and religion was on the program talking about the prominence of the supernatural on TV right now--from The Walking Dead's zombies to the vampires of The Vampire Diaries to the morality tale of Breaking Bad.  I particularly thought her comparison of the morality tales occurring on TV now to passion plays to be interesting.  I highly recommend this particular program.  I've added Winston's blog to my list of favorite blogs.
