McAndrew in the News

In the last two weeks of October, Frank McAndrew (Psychology) engaged in a wide-range of Halloween themed media activity.

McAndrew gave a talk on “the Psychology of Creepiness and Horror” at Western Illinois University’s Quad City campus, he did a radio interview about zombies on the Lisa Valentine Clark Show for KUMT Radio in Utah, and interviewed with CNN regarding the design of haunted houses (https://www.cnn.com/style/article/haunted-houses-architecture-psychology/index.html). His essay on why haunted houses creep us out was published by India TV News (https://www.indiatvnews.com/ap/world-news-evolutionary-psychology-explains-why-haunted-houses-creep-us-out-476362) and his essay on “How the God You Worship Influences the Ghosts that You See” appeared in Raw Story (https://www.rawstory.com/2018/10/god-worship-influences-ghosts-see/).

In recent weeks, McAndrew also did interviews on topics unrelated to Halloween with The Atlantic, Quartz, New York Magazine, & The Christian Science Monitor.
