A Promising Start
As a commuting New Yorker and pretty ravenous consumer of weird information, two of my favorite things are podcasts and the Morbid Anatomy Museum in Gowanus. In the museum's short time in my neighborhood, it’s become as important an institution as The Bell House, so when I saw them plug this podcast on Twitter, I decided to check it out.
Morbid Anatomy and podcasts go together like a pickled turtle and its second head. Like blood and guts. Like unsettling taxidermy and glass domes. The point is that it’s about time, and I’m glad this finally exists. And if you like the strange, the obscure, or the morbid, you should be too. The first two are straightforward interviews, but hopefully they’ll go deeper as time goes on. I’m excited to see where they go with this.
Five stars. Not because it’s perfect (audio quality could use work) but because there’s a lot of potential here.
I need more!!
These are great! Please keep them coming! I miss the Last Tuesday Society podcasts, but yours are wonderful and scratch the same itch for strange lectures. <3
