About This Show
Ritual is a podcast about how humans make patterns of meaning in a maddening world. The rituals we discuss will span centuries and civilizations. They will run the gamut from the ornately performative to the relatively mundane. Season One focuses on the quest for immortality and how we cope with our own expiration dates.
