Meat grown in labs? Why does facon need to taste like bacon? Why do we do such a bad job coming up with adjectives for the taste of various non-cow/pig/chicken meats, and who eats more grain; the mighty cow or the mighty vegetarian? This week we set the stage for a larger conversation about our food industry. Grandma’s stories about butchering chickens is quite far removed from mechanically separated chicken stars…
The stunning conclusion to Part 1 of Death Disposed has finally arrived! Unfortunately like most of our discussions there is no REAL conclusion here…but what else is new. Join us for Part 2 of a discussion about what happens to the body of the deceased after you leave the funeral…
…From leaving that pesky hookers’ body right there in the living room to rot, to watching it rot for science…AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN!
Grab yourself an expired food product of your choice and have a listen.
In the first of a series that we’re gonna call “The Barside Chats” Corinna heads out to the patio of her favorite local bar and chats with friends, Elisabeth Hieber, John Lynch and Sara Crandall. It starts with funeral tips and quickly escalates into tips on breaking the news that you are knocked up.
Well, we were planning on bringing you a lively talk about death disposal… but you are getting a midpoint conversation instead! There is a lot to unpack here, so give this a listen and then tune in next week for part two.
This week we discuss Death on Display. This is part one of two pod-casts about funerals, body donations, displays, disposal of our loved ones and ourselves. Having lost his father, Jeremy discusses some of the similarities between the work of a casualty death taxidermist and a mortician. The MWN team then explores topics that seem to cross over between one profession and the other. Mike Price was not able to be at this recording, but we have a special supplemental that will focus on his very apropos project combining taxidermy and mortuary science.
A toofer! This week we look at the processes involved in taxidermy from seeing something nice on the road all the way to setting the eyes and brushing those gorgeous curls. Episode one takes you down the road and up to the beginning phase of tanning.
