It's October, so it's time for some spooky tales of
how Science is Stranger Than Fiction: Death and
the Afterlife with Dr. Leslie New from WSU
Content warning: lots of discussion of dead bodies, murder, trepanning (pre-historic brain surgery), anatomical models, mummies, grave robbing, books made of human skin, and many of the exhibits in the Mutter Museum.
Visit our website to see some of the pictures and links to books and organizations mentioned during the talk.

Thanks to Graham Tully and Stephen Perry for sound production.
As always, a final thanks to Jonathan Coulton for the use of his song Mandelbrot Set as our theme music.
