Dead Ideas
This podcast explores ideas and practices gone extinct. Each dead idea is explored in all its glorious eccentricity. Our back-catalog boasts more than 100 episodes, covering everything from Viking berserkers to Roman steam technology and Japanese self-mummified monks. Find the show on iTunes, Stitcher, and other podcast apps, or visit us at our website at www.deadideas.net.

As of February 2019, Dead Ideas has scaled back to an irregular schedule of occasional releases in order to make time to develop our new show, which is...

The History of Sex
Did you know the Nazis encouraged girls to bear a child out of wedlock for the Fatherland? Or that the Byzantines saw eunuchs as a third gender? Or that Mongol men married older women for their sexual experience? This show will delve into gender, sex, and quirk* across world history, spanning the gamut from Egyptian fertility spells to Mongol masculinity.

How long it will take to develop this show? We don't really know because we're taking the time to do it right, but most likely it will come out in late 2019 or early 2020. In the meantime, check out Dead Ideas (which is chock full of gender-related stuff!), subscribe to the Dead Ideas podcast feed for updates, and drop us a line to say hi.

Thanks for your support!
