Episode 240 Let's Build a death rite for the baurhdrakkeim

Today's Topic – Creating a new ritual for the baurhdrakkeim

Today Michael and I are creating a cultural rite for death for the baurhdrakkeim. They are at the center of the first series of novels that I am working on.  This is not relevant to the stories to date. However, we thought it would be fun for this episode. So join us as Michael guides me through the process.
