Join Dr. Larry Burriss and Dr. Kathy Burriss for a “lively” tour of cemeteries around the world. From spirit houses in Alaska to temporary shelters for spirits that die in accidents in Peru, from voodoo cemeteries in New Orleans to attempts to keep the dead “in their place” in Baltimore, from little grave plots in the Smoky Mountains to giant mausoleums in France, cemeteries are more than scary resting places for the dead. It’s been said, “the dead tell no tales.” Yes they do! They tell us about culture, history and even comedy in stories you’ll be dying to hear.
