How does fermentation fit into your zombie apocalypse preparation plan? Join Athena Aktipis, an assistant professor of psychology at Arizona State University and chair of the Zombie Apocalypse Medicine Alliance, for a discussion about how fermenting can provide a number of benefits — from enhancing the nutritional value of your food, to preserving it for the long haul, to cultivating antimicrobial compounds that might help protect you from the agents of the zombie apocalypse. Fermented foods are also an example of multispecies cooperation that might serve as a good example for us all for how we might cooperate to survive the zombie apocalypse.
