Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Innocence Project

Have You Ever Heard of Sin-Eaters?

ENo one is perfect, but many religions believe that through confession, one's sins can be absolved. That absolution will allow you to spend their afterlife in glory and to move on to "the good place" (just depends on who you talk to). But for many Europeans and people of Great Britain they wanted extra insurance and that came in the form of a man willing to sell his soul. In this episode Jen delves into the morbid, historic funeral practice of sin-eating, history's loneliest profession. For ad free and additional content join The Society of The Torch and Glass!!
