Phillips, Professor of Communications and Rhetorical Studies at Syracuse University and author of Projected Fears: Horror Films and American Culture, to discuss Joe’s long-held fear of blood-sucking vampires and the recent slate of vampire themed shows appearing on cable television.  The two also discuss the terrifying neural implant technology that appears in several episodes of the Netflix show Black Mirror.  Take a listen as Dr. Phillips helps Joe work through his issues.
