Wherein Andy and Justice are dying to understand the many representations of a personified death in film and literature. We look at the 2022 Hugo Award-winning short story Mr. Death and the 1957 Ingmar Bergman film The Seventh Seal. Given its inevitablity, death is typically represented as terrifying; however, recent depictions show a more compassionate idea of the figure. Also, why does Death need to cheat at chess?

We dedicate this episode to Alan A. Hoffmann. (1954-2022)
