#42- Dead Baby Photographer (Trigger Warning)

WARNING controversial, insensative jokes and cringe worthy stories throughout this episode. This is an extremely dark episode and like all of our other guests, Linda Ann, laughs her way through a dark and depressing career path. She takes phographs of dead babies for families in hospitals. When you are constantly around people on the worst day of their lives you will develope a dark sense of humor. We in no way are making fun of the families or their situation. We simply are trying not to cry as we navigate this unbelievable episode.
