Chapter Forty-Three: Strange Memories of Death

Welcome to our annual October Halloween chapter! Each year, we choose a scary theme to celebrate the season, and this year is death. Justin and Ed spin some great tracks and explore how different artists treat the finality of life. We’ve got some big names in this one, ranging from Type O Negative to David Bowie to Wumspcut!
