What Death Can Teach Us About Living

A Podcast exploring and improving our relationship with death through respectful enquiry. Here you’ll find conversations with those who work with the dead and grieving as well as those who study death, in addition to episodes examining death through a lens of history & the arts, folklore and food.

We’ll take you from ancient funerary rituals to forensic anthropologists via green burials and Persephone’s pomegranates, learning on the way what death can teach us about living. We hope the journey & stories will provide you with some of the knowledge and empathy you need to navigate this vast hidden world as well as shine a light on the kindness and tenderness displayed by those professionals who truly take care of our dead.
