The Body


    Today’s show is all about the human body – more specifically, what happens to us after we’ve taken our last breath.  We’ll look at how dead bodies serve as teachers in medicine and science, we’ll learn about the science of autopsies, we’ll find out what comes of unclaimed bodies, and explore why some religions guard their dead. 

    It’s a show to die for.  Don’t miss it!
