Who is The Grim Reaper? Where did the image of
a cloaked skeleton wielding farming equipment come from? Will Eric
learn to pronounce "scythe" correctly? No, no he won't.
Join host Eric Dwinnells and guest cohost Tristyn Sepersky as they discuss all of the above as well as ancient visages of Death, psychopomps, A Christmas Carol, ceramics and why The Grim Reaper so often appears in programing meant for children.
On a more serious note, Eric opens up about the death of his
father and the unsettling effect it had on his childhood. This is
not something he likes to talk about and, as you'll hear, he
debates if he should even bring it up on the show. But, in the end,
we thought it was too interesting not to mention. You won't want to
