Braaaiiinnnsss!!! Or, academic responses to a zombie attack
In case of zombie attack, the best person on your side would be Robert Smith?. (The question mark is a legal part of his surname) You see, a couple of years ago the University of Ottawa mathematics professor and his students came to an equation, an equation that would help predict the best way to respond to an all-out zombie apocalypse by treating it like an infection.
But that wasn't enough for Robert Smith?. After all, you need more than math if you're going to save the world. So Robert asked around and found peers in other disciplines -- history, archeology, feminist theory -- and collected their responses into a book. It's called, of course, Braaaiiinnnsss! From Academics to Zombies. Robert joined us on the show this week to share his best zombie-fighting research.
