S02E08: Interesting epitaphs and headstone symbology. Thanks to chisels, stone, and, for some reason, zebras, the dead don’t need to be ghosts to communicate with the living!
(If you can explain the zebras, please get in touch. We’re so confused.)

S02E07: Green burials, body farms, and the inner workings of tombs, vaults, and mausoleums: We jump into the world of burial and interment, and somehow come out on Team Mausoleum. (We’ll also take Team Grad Student Road Trip, pending availability.)

S02E06: The Night Witches (the Nazi-bombing war heroes), and Lilith, the original Night Witch (possibly a demon, a goddess, or Adam’s first wife): These badass babes have at least one thing in common: if they’re around, you definitely won’t be getting any sleep.

S02E05: The Ring of Senicianus (The Real ‘One Ring to Rule Them All’ that inspired Tolkein?) and the Prague Orloj: Meet a cursed Roman artifact that just might lead to Hobbits and an astronomical clock with a rumored penchant for murder. (This is why we can’t have nice historic things.)

S02E02: Anatomical Venuses, waxwork models, Gunther von Hagens’ innovations in full body plastination, and the marriage of art and science: Let’s take a moment, shall we, to drop in on a dissectable, completely inexplicably orgasmic wax woman or two? Or maybe you’d prefer a mid-kick soccer player who’s just casually stepped out of his skin? Good news! You can totally see both, because, turns out, science and art play together quite nicely!

S02E01: Magic candles, dueling flower encyclopedias, and the creepiest gifts of all time: No human skin lampshades or tooth-bejeweled underthings were waiting under the tree for these podcast hosts! We both received delightfully witchy, but still relatively normal gifts this holiday season. (But, there’s always next year!)

S01E18: Victorian Christmas Candle Fires and Creepy Holiday Traditions: We don’t want to tell you how to live your lives, but maybe don’t mix candles with indoor evergreens. Or alcohol with...anything. Because, Victorian times, they were deeply flammable.
