About The Obituary Files

My name is Judd, and I’m the host/creator of The Obituary Files podcast.

As far back as I can remember, I’ve liked walking through old graveyards and cemeteries and reading the names on the gravestones.  I would wonder what the people were like, what their dreams were, what kind of lives they lived, and how they died. For people who died over a hundred years ago, there is no one left who remembers them at all.  So if I can read their names out loud, then maybe somewhere in the universe, a little light will shine again, if only for a moment. Because, when there is no one left who remembers them, it’s like they never existed at all. But they did.

The Obituary Files brings the long dead back to life through forgotten stories and obituaries.
