Welcome to episode 31 of Cemetery Confessions! On this month’s episode we are talking about the lineage of deathrock music, the controversy over cemeteries at Whitby Goth Weekend, and we are sitting down for a chat with several lovely ladies about aging in the goth scene and what that looks like from a cultural and individual perspective.
Our guests this month are Jez, Elizabeth, and Christine.

This month, as you know, we are talking about ageing in spectacular youth culture. Over time there have been a growing number of academics researching and studying the aging demographic of subcultures, and as someone who intends to grow old as a goth, and respects my elders, I thought it was high time we sat down with some seasoned goths to explore their involvement and identity in the goth culture.
