During the Victorian era, the practice of capturing photographs of the dead was part of a complicated etiquette surrounding death and mourning. In this episode, we examine that etiquette and how post-mortem photography developed, its processes and how it aided in the mourning process.

It's the second week of January 2020, so here's the first episode of season 3 of Rose Sinister: Vampires, all about Elizabeth Kostova's 2005 novel "The Historian," which ruminates on history, evil, and Dracula.

On the 3rd day of January, 2020, I give you... the final episode of the truncated second season of Rose Sinister: Vampires, an episode that is literally so many months overdue that I had to go back and re-edit out some of the stuff that was no longer relevant. Astute listeners will easily find the spot I didn't edit out.
THERE WILL BE A SEASON3! It is in the works and currently fairly far along. Season 3 will be more like season 1 was: regular uploads every 2 weeks.
