Being buried alive has been a deep-seated fear for centuries. So naturally, people have invented a number of ways to ensure that should they wake up in a coffin, they could escape and resume their non-deceased life.
The West Coast leg of our tour will be a Halloween episode that looks at the fear of death and premature burial as it has played out through history.
The show is hosted by Holly Frey and Tracy V. Wilson, two ladies who learned to love history as they realized just how much the modern world was shaped by lesser-known people and events in the past.
The podcast digs into topics that haven’t gotten enough attention in the world of history – whether they’re weird, wonderful, scary or sad. Favorite episodes include everything from the decades-long dispute between butter and margarine, to a pair of lions that terrorized a railroad crew in Kenya, to the only successful coup d’état in American history.
