Elsewhere Episode #15 – Dr. Kate Kingsbury (Santa Muerte)

Known throughout Mexico and beyond as the folk saint of death, Santa Muerte is a complex hybrid of Catholic and Indigenous beliefs. Feared and misunderstood for her connections to organized crime, she is nonetheless worshipped by millions of people around the world, and serves as the primary focus of today’s guest on the Elsewhere Podcast: Dr. Kate Kingsbury, professor of Anthropology at UBC.
