Hobo Radio 494 – Lars has ghosted (ft. Kim Le)

Subscribe:


In honor of Halloween, Lars Periwinkle has ghosted the show this week. So Joel Murphy is joined by the hardest working woman in Baltimore, Kim Le.

They talk about Kim’s various projects, including her recent deeply-personal immersive theatre show with The Institute of Visionary History that delved into her family history; an exploration that began with her 2015 HoboTrashcan column “Last Days in Vietnam.” They also discuss the bureaucracy of weddings and funerals and the similarities between Vietnamese death rituals and the film Coco.

Where is Lars? What’s the most Midwestern thing Kim does during the podcast? What are funeral potatoes? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Halloween (Remix)” by The Coffinshakers

099-Maryland Spooky Sites?

Living in Maryland most of our lives we have encountered places here where the history is almost palpable. Native Americans were drawn to the area with the rich seafood able to be caught along the shores of the Chesapeake bay. Being one of the original thirteen colonies, we are home to some amazing, spooky and possibly haunted sites.

098-Buried Alive?

PREMATURE BURIAL
To die is natural; but the living death
Of those who waken into consciousness,
Though for a moment only, ay, or less,
To find a coffin stifling their last breath,
Surpasses every horror underneath
The sun of Heaven, and should surely check
Haste in the living to remove the wreck
Of what was just before, the soul’s fair sheath,
How many have been smothered in their shroud!
How many have sustained this awful woe!
Humanity would shudder could we know
How many have cried to God in anguish loud,
Accusing those whose haste a wrong had wrought
Beyond the worst that ever devil thought.
