Vamps

We have a special Halloween podcast today with Otto Penzler, editor of The Vampire Archives: The Most Complete Volume of Vampire Tales Ever Published. We discuss why vampires are so popular nowadays, why these villains have persisted over time in movies and literature, and why they’ve transformed into good guys in the Twilight series and elsewhere.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
