Lovely!!

A necessary topic for discussion! It’s weird to say that I love this kind of topic, but I think it’s a thing that needs to be normalized. Thanks for sharing your hearts & humor with us, Tara & Talcott.

The best

I binged this from the very beginning and love it entirely. Even without the awesome Trek references this would be one of my favorite things to listen to.

Keeping it light with a heavy subject

Today I was feeling kind of down, and I saw that there was a new episode of Death Prattle, and I thought, "Oh, great! This'll cheer me up!" AND IT TOTALLY DID! Something about the affectionate friendship between the hosts, the geekery, and the strange jokes about the hosts' grieving, always improves my day. Thanks, Talcott and Dr. Dunderdale!
