Corpses!

So yesterday I was listening to the latest My Favorite Murder podcast about Karl Tanzler, the crazy stalker guy who was so obsessed with this lady he stole her corpse and lived with it for years and tried to bring it back to life.  In the podcast they talk about the fact that after he got out of jail he wrote about his story in an 1947 pulp fantasy magazine called Fantastic Adventures and then later Ben Harrison wrote a book about it called Undying Love.

AS I’M LISTENING TO THIS PODCAST I open a package from one of my friends.  He and his husband are visiting Key West (where the corpse bride story took place) and they saw that I’d signed the lease on my bookshop so they went to an Indie bookshop (Key West Island Books) to find a gift for me, and the bookseller knew me and was like, “You should get her this.”  And inside the package was a signed copy of Undying Love and the original 1947 copy of Fascinating Adventures.

WHAT.

Anyway, I’m pretty sure this is a sign that I need to dig up a corpse or something but that sounds like too much cardio so instead I’m going to take it as a sign that the bookstore is a good idea and that maybe today we should be sharing the podcasts we’re love because honestly I need some new ones to listen to.

Here are a few I’ve been enjoying lately :

Try to watch the movie they’re talking about before you listen to the episode if you haven’t seen it to fully enjoy it, but honestly listening to them without having seen the movie in question is still amazing. DEFINITELY watch ‘Drop Dead Fred’ on YouTube before listening to that particular episode because it is by far one of their best to date. Team Fred all the way!

    “Anyway, I’m pretty sure this is a sign that I need to dig up a corpse or something but that sounds like too much cardio…” ‘Tis true!

    A while back I was doing genealogy. I found the private family cemetery for one of my lines. In this cemetery, I found the graves of several of my ancestors, including a g-g-whatever-grandfather, but I couldn’t find the grave for his wife. I looked all over the cemetery, but her grave wasn’t there.

    Later, I asked a relative online where the wife’s grave was, and why she wasn’t in the family cemetery. This is what I was told:

    The husband & wife had been having marital troubles, and the wife had gone to live with one of their daughters. While she was living there, she died. The husband insisted that she not be buried in the family cemetery, so the children buried her somewhere else. The husband later relented, and went himself to exhume her body and move her to the family cemetery, but as he has exhuming her body, he had a fatal heart attack! His body was eventually discovered and buried in the family cemetery, but hers never was, and now no one living knows where her grave is.

    Moral of the story: Yes, digging up a corpse can be too much cardio.

Even the ones that are more thoroughly male oriented (like men’s fashion and style) are still interesting for the insight they provide.

    Stuff You Should Know – on the How Stuff Works network. There are over 1200 podcasts by these guys. I listen to them constantly and am always entertained while learning all kinds of bizarre things. You should start with this episode – What can be done with a dead body?

  130. Southern Nightmare; it’s about a strangler whose first victim was miles from where I grew up and I’d never even heard of him. Granted, I was 3 when it happened, but I’m really into true crime so I’m still surprised. Cool fact: this guy was the first murderer to be caught using DNA!

  131. Tanis, The Last Movie, Tales from the Archives (The Ministry of Peculliar Occurances), and The Orbiting Human Circus are a few I really like. Those and The Shared Desk by the writers of The Ministry of Peculliar Occurances series.

    I hardly ever do true crime podcasts, but Casefile is great. I’m also a HUGE history nerd, so The British History Podcast and The History of England are my top two favorites. BBC History with Melvin Bragg is another good one. David Tennant’s is great and I love it.

  147. I used to read and watch a lot of horror or scary things. I stopped many years ago now! I read some crazy shit like-American Psycho-crazy shit! I’m 55 now, I stopped ingesting this CRAP a bit over 10-15 yrs ago. At the time it was fun, scary like riding a roller coaster scary. I have dealt with severe anxiety and depression most of my life! I’m am so so sorry I EVER filled my head with that type disgusting shit! Big big mistake I feel at this point. What we FILL our heads with becomes part of us!!! I wish I would have spent that precious time consuming beautiful, educational, enlightening, etc etc books and/or media! I do now. But fuck I wasted a lot of my time and brain consuming trash! Don’t do this to yourself. It certainly will NOT help with your emotional issues and I feel, in fact, will only add to them! There’s enough horrific things happening in real life we must somehow deal with emotionally without adding more disgusting shit to our brains/emotions! I implore to stop! 💜🙏🏻🕊🌺

  179. Not a podcast–but I think you would love an Aussie TV show, Spirited. It’s about a very awkward woman, a dentist, who leaves her cheating, narcissistic husband and moves, with her 2 children, into the penthouse of a former hotel–and she is haunted there by the ghost of a Brittish rock star. I found it on Amazon Prime and it has ghosts, possessions, a heroine who is uncomfortable around people and often says exactly the wrong thing, and a cat who plays an increasingly important role. The rock star is unexpectedly sexy, I preferred season 2, but both are worth watching. It’s one of my all time favorite shows now. Rated M for language and some mature content.

It is the researchers for the UK quiz show QI (formerly hosted by Stephen Fry, now Hosted by Sandi Toksvig) chatting about the most interesting things they have some across while researching in the last week. UK accents plus facts you’ve probably never heard? Weird enough for professional researchers to take notice? Are you sold yet? I will also recommend the Futility Closet as another fun weird tales podcast that is very well researched.

  187. Sawbones – how is this not on more people’s list?? It’s a topic-of-the-week podcast about old-timey medicine and the weird turns we’ve taken throughout history.

    Patient Zero – It’s like a deep delve into a true crime story…except it’s about Lyme Disease and there’s no crime to be found (unless ticks are the REAL criminals!)

    The Magnus Archives – Weekly horror anthology in the style of M.R. James but with an overarching plot and a bunch of threads that tbh I’m starting to lose track of a little but it’s still good!

    Spectacular Failures – Every episode they pick a different company that went really big and then exploded and explore what they were and why it happened. And make bad jokes along the way.

    Tanis – Currently between seasons. A textbook example (if there is such a thing!) of weird lit. If densely packed fiction weaving threads of existing (or slightly fictionalized) conspiracy theories, strange corporations with mysterious business, 19th century journals of a man conducting highly unethical experiments on people, and a pacific northwestern forest gone wrong in the style of an investigative podcast is your thing, you might want to check this one out. Definitely best binged instead of waiting for each episode to come out.

    Archive 81 – More weird fiction! Each season tells a different and strange horror story. I haven’t heard anything like it and I love it. This one’s also currently between seasons.
