History in a Few Words

Produced and hosted by Amy Renee Haines.

Music composed and performed by Willow Hardwick of Absolute Quantum. Check out their music and give them a follow on Spotify or wherever you listen to your favorite artists.

History in a Few Words explores the past in various ways. Amy looks at memory, culture, art, and environment for starters to ask questions about where we’ve been, and perhaps help us understand the complexities of where we are. Amy looks at topics related to death and dying, cemeteries, mortuary art, obsessions with artifacts of the dead, how we commemorate them and more, in this first series exploring mortality and how we grapple with it.
