One of the fastest-growing religions in the west centers on a mysterious death goddess. Her movement has been persecuted in modern times by both government and religious entities. We speculate on the heretical Santa Muerte and explore the practices, theologies, and cultural impact surrounding this mercurial folk saint. In the end, we discover that death is pregnant with so much life.

Astral Guest – Dr. Andrew Chesnut, author of Devoted to Death: Santa Muerte, the Skeleton Saint, and Professor of Religious Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University.
