Ep. 106: Shrinky-Dinkification: Spontaneous Human Combustion WITH SPECIAL GUEST ALEXIS

Happy Holidays from TPDE! We bring you a really-heckin-hot episode this week on spontaneous human combustion with our special guest, Alexis, helping us out. It might be “ick”, but can humans really go up in flames with nothing to ignite them but their own insides? We certainly hope not! We learn how much Emma knows about the death industry, what exactly we want done with our bodies after we’ve left this mortal plane, and ponder just how flammable we all are. Shannon has decided she doesn’t want to sit near a fire ever again. Hope you get lit this holiday season in all the best ways!
