Have a Friend for Lunch
Who would you eat first, family member or friend? Would it make a difference if you had to kill the person who would be your next meal or if they were already dead?
Horrific History Podcast’s co-hosts, Eric Slyter and Curtis Bender discuss winter cannibalism in history, specifically the Donner Party and the Colorado Cannibal, Alferd Packer. Grave scavenging and murders, prison breaks and lynching, you’ll hear it all! So sit down with some fava beans and a nice Chianti while you enjoy our latest Horrific History episode through one of your favorite podcast services (iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn and more), and join us again in two weeks for radiation poisoning!
