06 Bodies in Fire - Heroic Cats and Scarlett
What with the Western states being on fire we felt it would be interesting to discuss what happens to a body/cadaver when exposed to flames and/or heat. This is a discussion of the burning of human bodies and details what happens to a deceased individual. There is mention of sorting out if the person was alive or not but does not go into detail about that. We do go into fairly graphic detail of what happens to a cadaver.  This episode was recorded on Sept 13 but uploaded on Sept 19.  To end on a pleasant note, at about min 45 we get to hear about some heroic cats who saved their families, both human and their own babies.
