Death Explained!! Part One: Feat. Prof. Albert Hamscher! 

Listener comments!

  Thu. 10/25/12 7:01pm Amy Grant:

Night People!
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:04pm Dude #8:

tuned in randomly, heard the intro music, and was pleasantly surprised to be reminded that Night People was on!
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:04pm Kendall!:

But have you killed someone?
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:04pm Dan B From Upstate:

Mreh! I hate this show! Mreh!
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:05pm Alex's Mom:

Honey, your son is making rude comments again.
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:05pm Cliff:

We all hate this show! That's why we tune in week after week!!
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:06pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

Fright People!
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:06pm Kendall!:

I saw an old woman who I was friends with, dead in the hospital only 10 minutes after she died, and it's totally different from a funeral body. The body sets in to rigamortis, and the mouth and eyes look like empty sockets almost. It's like the person has become a shell of what they used to be, like a cicada leaves their shell. They don't even look like the person they used to be.
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:08pm danny venture:

stand by me har
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:08pm danny venture:

  Thu. 10/25/12 7:09pm danny venture:

shit that was wings
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:10pm Kendall!:

in Nepal and Tibet they leave the corpses in a field for vultures to eat. It's called a Sky Burial and it looks pretty cool.
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:11pm hey dan b:

eat it .
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:11pm Cliff:

Unless you're an invalid and your radio knob is broken, and the power switch is inoperative, and the radio can't be unplugged for some reason.
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:11pm Kendall!:

I recently visited the Sedlec Ossuary where a half-blind monk built a ton of sculptures with the bones of 50,000 people dead from the Plague and the Hussar wars
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:11pm Dan B From Upstate:

Eat what?
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:12pm Politician:

Any plan we might have for balancing the budget would be so unpopular, everyone would hate us. Not the way to re-election.
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:13pm danny venture:

quiche! eat a quiche he meant, we're all happy here
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:13pm eat your:

  Thu. 10/25/12 7:14pm Dan B From Upstate:

Well, that's not polite.
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:14pm Douche:

@eat your: I am too high class to be seen in such a dwelling.
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:15pm Trailer Park Douche:

@Douche: Well, ain't you all high an' mighty all of a sudden!
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:16pm danny venture:

this is starting to look like a YouTube thread of comments..
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:18pm GOP:

"This Republic of Suffering"? Dammit, we could've used that as our platform title this year!!
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:28pm Dan B From Upstate:

I hadn't really experienced my first family death until I was 21.
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:28pm danny venture:

this is true, in my opinion, that not experiencing death in our time as a regular and visceral fact of life has made us more neurotic about our own death or death of loved ones
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:32pm Cliff:

My paternal grandfather died a few months before I was born. My paternal grandmother died when I was 7. My father died just after I turned 20. My maternal grandparents died within a month of each other when I was 30. And then a month after that my stepfather died.
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:34pm Dan B From Upstate:

Wow, Cliff. I feel for you, but you probably don't have the same fear of death that I do.
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:37pm die dan b die!:

die , i say
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:39pm danny venture:

but i mean being on top of the food chain we have no real predator to fear and a real lack of 'shit, my cousins was killed by a bear, well, that's life, and there he is, dead and mauled' i dont mean everyone should suffer these situations, but, uhh, you know, as an extreme example, you'd get a lot of thinking out of the way in a short period of time. you wouldn't be leaping onto the chairs at the oscars with love of life but we've lost a concrete threat of imminent death and the void is a major cause of.. confusion?
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:42pm Cliff:

Dan B, I still have an instinctual fear of it, for sure, but intellectually I'm more at peace with it, I guess. Which reminds me, the year before my grandparents and stepdad died, I was hit and run over by a car. Fortunately no major injuries. I can still remember the absolute panic I felt as the car's wheel rolled over my foot...
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:45pm Dan B From Upstate:

Holy crap, Cliff! I couldn't even imagine! The closest I ever came was I nearly fell in a canal near where I grew up when I was maybe four. My mother grabbed my shirt and pulled me back, then called me an idiot. Fair enough, I suppose.
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:52pm Cliff:

When I was a toddler, I stumbled down the basement steps and almost landed head-first on the concrete basement floor, but luckily my dad was down there working and he caught me. I don't have any direct memories of it, but all my life I've had nightmares of slowly floating down the basement steps head-first. I think it's a memory of what happened to me when I was a toddler. (Sorry if I'm bringing everybody down....I'm not really too depressed about these things anymore, I'm just a bit unlucky I guess :)
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:53pm Cliff:

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right?
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:54pm Dan B From Upstate:

Nah, Cliff. Don't worry about it. If anything, it's interesting to learn about people! Good point. I haven't almost fallen in any canals since.
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:56pm Dan B From Upstate:

Night, People!
  Thu. 10/25/12 7:57pm Cliff:

Night, people. :D
  Sun. 10/28/12 6:06am Listener zero:

Interesting episode, too bad about Dave's technical problems. Also, why is the open casket such a thing in eastern-orthodox churches?
  Fri. 11/2/12 5:36pm uptown:
