Episode 3: The Garden of Earthly Delights


Episode 3: The Garden of Earthly Delights is now available where ever you listen to podcasts, including iTunes, Stitcher, and Google Play. First time listening? Here is Episode 1. Subscribe to stay up to date as the mystery unfolds. After listening to Episode 3, listeners are encouraged to explore companion materials below.

Much of Episode 3 focuses on a medieval altar painting by Hieronymus Bosch commonly called The Garden of Earthly Delights. I found an incredible audio and video rich online experience for which you need to turn on your sound. Or better still: put on headphones. Click below to wander around the painting or take a guided tour. Again, you will really want headphones for this.

And here is a more traditional documentary titled The Mysteries of Hieronymus Bosch. It is a 1980 BBC documentary about the famous painter from the Netherlands. The narrator / researcher is pretty great.

Music for Episode 3 was provided by Prom Queen as well as Ben Von Wildenhaus. Enjoy the video for “Can’t Seem to Cry” by Prom Queen. The video was shot on location at Triple X Root Beer Drive-In and Fred Wildlife Refuge.
