I’m the Host A slightly deeper look at the media we all consume

Cannibals and cops and zombies! (Oh my!) Our media this week is Chew from Image Comics and the CW TV show iZombieThis time we're exploring why we want to humanize our monsters and whatever was going on in early 2010 that made ghoulishness en vogue. We also discuss if the monster love story books are related to the "fix the bad boy" trope in teen lit. 

Hopefully there's something here you can...sink your teeth into? ...I'll see myself out.
