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.
