In this episode, we will be exploring the folklore, legend, and science of real-life zombies. The zombie myth is alive and well in Haitian folklore where shamen and voodoo sorcerers, known as bokor, bewitch the undead and use them as free labor or to carry out nefarious tasks. But is this life reanimated or forced servitude under drug addiction? We’ll discuss the story of Clairvius Narcisse, a man who claimed to be a real-life zombie, detail the process of zombification, and analyze the research of Wade Davis who claimed to have cracked the zombie drug code.
