I love this show, and was pleasantly surprised to see the new episode in my feed last night.
Death is what we call the inevitable transfer of each of us to the next trophic level. It is rarely, if ever, instantaneous.
Which is why embalming and other forms of corpse-poisoning are hideous blasphemies that are (thankfully) doomed to failure.
Hey, you asked.
You strike me as someone who might be interested in the International Necronautical Society.
Thank you. Cras ingens iterabimus aequor, indeed… I’m not sure if I like or even appreciate it, but it certainly is interesting, as you say.
Death is never having too worry about tomorrow.
I am looking forward to this… It’ll be a real struggle, though, to top last year’s sound of Billy Bragg leading a Glastonbury audience in a call-and-response chant of the Venerable Bede’s name.
In the name of science, natch. Or at least chemistry – it was Glastonbury, after all.
Billy Bragg needs his own show. Meanwhile, here’s a half hour of him with Maron.
Also, anyone who randomly clicked these comments–Infinite Monkey Cage is really worth checking out. It’s a science/comedy podcast with a level of sophistication that not only doesn’t exist in other podcasts…it simply does not (publicly) exist in the United States. Give it a shot!
“I have been half in love with easeful Death…”
Not dead, just “pining for the fjords.”
