Episode 14 – The Zapocalypse Installment 1

OK, we’ll admit it: we’re obsessed with the Zombie Apocalypse aka THE ZAPOCALYPSE. We started planning this zombie-only episode – the first in a series – from The Nerd Out’s genesis, and are super excited to bring interviews with two amazing experts: Matt Mogk of The Zombie Research Society, who answers some burning questions (zombie biology! how the virus might spread! why Los Angeles is screwed!) and and The Zombie Response Team, Zapocalypse survivalists and cool folks with a plan.
