From Here to Eternity
- Traveling the World to Find the Good Death
- Written by: Caitlin Doughty
- Narrated by: Caitlin Doughty
- Length: 5 hrs and 37 mins
Fascinated by our pervasive terror of dead bodies, mortician Caitlin Doughty set out to discover how other cultures care for their dead. In rural Indonesia, she observes a man clean and dress his grandfather's mummified body. Grandpa's mummy has lived in the family home for two years, where the family has maintained a warm and respectful relationship. She meets Bolivian natitas (cigarette-smoking, wish-granting human skulls) and introduces us to a Japanese kotsuage.

The Picture of Dorian Gray
- Written by: Oscar Wilde
- Narrated by: Russell Tovey
- Length: 8 hrs and 35 mins
A disturbing tale of a young man's uncanny ability to remain both young and beautiful while descending into a life of heartless debauchery, The Picture of Dorian Gray was considered proof of both Wilde's genius and his perversion. Oscar Wilde's scandalous best seller of 1891 was one of the most damning pieces of evidence used against him in the trial that brought about his downfall.

Very enjoyable 👍
Loved it, the narrator was excellent in acting out all the characters. very philosophical and I found myself rewinding quite often, just to pause and think.
