In the early 1900s, the great and good at the Paris Opera buried an urn full of “living voices”—Gramophone recordings of famous opera stars—to be disinterred after a century. When those urns were opened, mysterious recordings were discovered. Who made them? And why?

Lesser of 2 Weevils brings you The Shattered Podcast, with music by Katharine Seaton. https://katharineseaton.com/
