Episode 014: Odds and Endings
For this episode, I discuss some odds & ends I’ve discovered on this podcasting journey. Sometimes my research turns up interesting tidbits that I don’t get to talk about during our brief monthly meditation. So I’ve gathered some favorites here including the paradoxical frog, toxic people, spontaneous combustion, and more… Listen to more Mortician’s Daughter through our website, or subscribe on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Episode 013: Lucky Number Thirteen
This episode just so happens to be Lucky Number Thirteen so I thought this would be the perfect time to explore my lucky number and the superstitions surrounding it. We’ll get into some of the history of its unlucky status, its present day impact, Friday the 13th, and more. You can also hear Carly say “paraskevidekatriaphobia” several times… Listen to more Mortician’s Daughter through our website, or subscribe on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Episode 012: Shared Despair
Let’s hit pause on this era of shared despair to try and find some humor amid the misery. A twisted humor, perhaps, but good for a laugh all the same. Even if it’s just a modest chuckle. Join us as we consider the famous last words, the occasionally mixed feelings about human calamities, and the dangers of everyday objects and events, like molasses and atomic wedgies.

Episode 011: Hauntings Pt. II
Back in Episode Seven we first touched upon the subject of hauntings in the United States and we thought it would be fun to circle back, especially this time of year. For this installment, we aurally explore Shadow Folk, a Death Tree, haunted roads, haunted churches, and more. We even touch upon the mythology that surrounds The Stanley Hotel in Colorado which was the inspiration for The Shining by Stephen King. Let’s get spooky on this month’s episode…

Episode 010: What To Do Before You Die
Today we’re here to talk about preparing for the inevitable. Don’t panic. We’re going to try to keep things fun while we talk about some of the decisions that need to be made prior to death. And this just isn’t about what happens after you die. These decisions can impact you while you’re alive. Really, we have a lot to discuss from Powers of Attorney and Wills to Legacies and, of course, what to do with the body. Let’s dive into some real talk with maybe just a smidge of healthy irreverence.

Episode 009: Reincarnation
In this afterlife installment of The Mortician’s Daughter, we explore the concept of reincarnation or transmigration historically, philosophically, and cross-culturally. And, of course, we dive into some real life examples made for the argument that we are all part of an ongoing cycle of death and rebirth we call reincarnation.

Episode 008: The Golden Gate Bridge
In this episode of The Mortician’s Daughter, we discuss the architectural marvel known as the Golden Gate Bridge to explore the more mysterious and macabre points of its history. From the Halfway to Hell Club that formed during its construction to its contemporary status as the second most popular suicide bridge in the world, The Golden Gate has more than its fair share of tales to chill you to your core… if you dare to listen.

Episode 006: The Lives and Deaths of Saints
In this latest installment of The Mortician’s Daughter, we talk about avoiding the summer heat (and resultant depression) here in the Sonoran Desert and about the paths to Sainthood, obviously. You might not see the initial correlation between these two ideas, but in fifteen minutes, I can draw the line. Yes, as any art historian can tell you, the road to sainthood is quite violent for those martyred for their faith. In this episode, we discuss the lives (and deaths) of some Catholic Saints and consider some alternative options… < ![CDATA[//>< !]]>

Episode 005: Nietzsche and Eternal Recurrence
The Mortician’s Daughter Episode 005: Nietzsche and Eternal Recurrence This time around, I’m here to briefly touch upon Nietzsche and Eternal Recurrence. Now, Friedrich Nietzsche presents such a large and looming figure — philosophically, culturally, and personally — that I feel we will be revisiting him and his work again in the months and years to come so, instead of getting too carried away right off the bat, I thought it might be best to narrow our focus and touch upon one of his more popular notions: Eternal Recurrence. We can save the Übermensch and Nazis and horse-whipping crazy-house for another day… _ Written and narrated by Carly Schorman Produced and edited by Mark Anderson and Garrett Bowers Theme song “Of Soil & Sleep” by Travis James < ![CDATA[//>< !]]>
