The Bones & Bobbins Podcast, Season 1, Episode 1: These Dollhouses Aren’t for Kids
In this very first official episode of the Bones & Bobbins Podcast, Haley and Natali discuss Miyu Kojima and Frances Glessner Lee–two women, worlds and decades apart, who combined craft and death in their own amazing way. One would process death and create an act of public service for the living, the other would birth Forensic Science as we know it today.
