The LoonCast

The LoonCast The LoonCast is a podcast about death and belief. It is produced and hosted by Ben Thorp, Evan Mikalonis, Phillip Russell, and Shira Kresch. What is the role of belief in our society?

Why do we hold onto ideas about the supernatural despite all the evidence that suggests otherwise?

Reincarnation

Finally! A new episode for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!

For some of us, it's difficult to remember anything before the age of six. For others, they can remember lifetimes before they were even born. The LoonCast explores reincarnation, finding memories where we least expect them, and the contrary.

Only Human

A couple episodes back, we talked about what happens to our bodies when we die and how we find meaning in making that choice (Episode 9: "Burial"). This episode of Only Human includes the voice of a widow who found so much fulfillment in donating her late husband's body to science. Definitely worth a listen!

The body on Table 4 was more than a collection of vessels and valves to be dissected. He was a musician, an educator, a husband. But the students had no idea.
