Cadavers… A Curious Conversation With Mary Roach

October 15, 2018

Have you ever thought about what happens to your body after you die? Would you ever eat a 'mellified man?" or Donate your body to science so that your brain can be studied? In part 3 of our Halloween episode we talk about the curious lives of human cadavers with 7 time New York Times Best Selling Author and Science Humor Writer Mary Roach! Mary chats with us about her best selling novel "STIFF, The Curious Lives Of Human Cadavers," her quirky writing process, how she got the idea to write about cadavers, her first reaction to seeing a severed human head, and why she went all the way to China looking for dumplings made from human flesh! This episode is not to be missed!
