People across cultures and ages have practiced corpse medicine – using the human body or it’s secretions to cure ailments ranging from baldness to epilepsy and toothache to mania.

From Europe to China to Arabia a special quality has been attached healing powers of the human body. Crushed skull and cocoa, mellified man, the blood of the recently deceased (or three young boys if you happen to be Pope.) and more have all been highly sort after remedies.

This episode Anton and I bring back this lost knowledge, making and tasting our own corpse medicine from skulls, brains, mummies and honeyed human flesh. Welcome to our Halloween special!
