SHIFTING THE PARADIGM PLAYLIST - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLneWjPNXc1RwPk7mA_1fMCzLrG0s3j2wT

From the PBS 'Storied Humanities' Channel TV Show, Dr. Emily Zarka joins Cristina Gomez in this week's episode to look into what is behind the fascination with monsters, and evil creatures, and why do they have such a huge following in pop culture..? Do the monsters represent our fears, or give rise to evil people from within, and are there monsters in all of us..?

Dr. Emily Zarka earned her doctorate in literature from Arizona State University where she currently serves as a faculty member in the English department. With expertise in the Gothic genre, horror, and monsters in literature and film, Zarka’s research applies the theory that ‘human history is monster history.’ Zarka is the creator, writer, and host of the popular YouTube series “Monstrum,” the flagship show on PBS’ Storied humanities channel.

Since its launch in 2019, “Monstrum” has won multiple Telly awards and was a 2022 Webby Honoree in Video-Best Writing. She also serves as cohost and script editor for Storied’s “Fate & Fabled” series. Zarka wrote and hosted the Telly award-winning documentary special Exhumed: A History of Zombies that aired nationally on PBS in October 2020.
