Today’s show is a special Halloween show and it is a two-parter.
The first part is about pumpkins:
*The general history, naming, etc.
*Some uses. Some common and some you might never have thought of.
*How they figure into Halloween. They weren’t the original Halloween vegetable.
*The legend behind Jack of the Lantern.
The second part of today’s show is about zombies. No, not the mythical modern equivalent that we see in so many horror movies. I’m talking real zombies, both the human tales and the insect equivalent.
*The modern zombie version and why its such a great metaphor for so many things.
*The traditional version, the truth of it and why its scarier than the modern version.
*The modern equivalent – Zombie Ants.
*The traditional equivalent – Voodoo Wasps!
