Don't be afraid, it's only monsters
I'm Dr. Emily Zarka. I have a PhD in literature and a fascination with the
gothic in horror. I'm a professor but I'm also a huge nerd,
and I'm here to take you on a journey with Monstrum - the show that takes you
across the globe and through time, to look at the monsters and myths that have
shaped who we are. Why did Godzilla emerge from Japan. Are dragons real?
What exactly is a Kraken? Monstrum looks at humans unique drive to create and shape
monster mythology through oral storytelling, literature, and film. Monster
history is human history.
