TW: Ritual violence, Child death
 
The ancient Chimu civilization wasn't known to sacrifice humans, until a mass grave of child sacrifices was unearthed in 2011. In this episode we discuss the Chimu, how to identify human sacrifice in archaeology, and the two mass child grave sites in Huanchaco, Peru.

It’s no secret that hosts Ed and Justin each have their own video game music podcasts, so it was inevitable that their interests would intersect eventually! This month, they take a look at how industrial, goth, synthwave etc is used to create mood and atmosphere in video games. From the harsh industrial beats of “Prodeus,” to the electro-rock riffs of “Vampire: The Masquerade,” to a spooky Nick Cave-esque ballad from “Trüberbrook,” there’s a fantastic selection of music you may not be aware of!
