Interesting and varied

Although there is the overall theme to this podcast it doesn’t stick to just death. It is well researched and spoken but doesn’t come off as if she is just reading from a piece of paper, thankfully! I have had to stop listening to a few podcasts because it is obvious they are very scripted. I also appreciate the length of the podcasts. I listen to something like 30-40 podcasts so I am glad when I find one that isn’t consistently doing an hour plus episodes.

Clever, Morbid, bite-sized

Thoroughly enjoyable facts and folklore about death and the dead. Funny and informative, makes you interesting at parties. If you party with weirdos like myself.
