This episode will look back on some of the most pertinent and popular topics that we’ve covered.

    This anniversary episode features: Malin Andersson, John Adams, Reverend Canon David Jennings, Tara DeMarco, Ruth Blakemore, Katherine & Simon Tansey as well as G Seller’s Tracy Orton, Joe Clarke-Ferridge, Amy & Joseph Barsby.

Joe discusses how privileged he feels to be able to embalm, and answers whether or not we embalm if the person isn't being visited in the Chapel of Rest.
