Ep 17- Memento Mori with Lucy Fitzgerald

Ep 17- Memento Mori with Lucy Fitzgerald

Memento Mori is Latin for "Remember that you must die," and is an artistic or symbolic reminder to live life to the fullest because we all must die.

Shayna and Kathy are joined by Lucy Fitzgerald of the Wine and Crime Podcast, to discuss this life affirming, if a bit creepy, concept. You will learn about the stages of grief, Kathy's unexpected assertion that Jumanji is related to the topic, and will be able to hear the differences in sounds of rattlesnake vertebrae, goat teeth, and baby teeth being shaken in a jar.
