ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

Welcome to monstr....

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.

Welcome to Monstrum.
