Episode 85. Q&A

This week we answer listener questions. We talk funeral preferences, how much is too much to talk about lost loved ones, and how Talcott should definitely throw out a can of beans that is definitely poison.

Episode 83. But maybe they aren't *really* dead

This week we talk about the bizarre feeling of thinking maybe your loved one faked it all along. We discuss the coming back from the dead trope in pop culture and how we'd feel if someone actually did that to us.

Episode 82. Talking about death (but in the same room this time!)

It's an actual play podcast! Sort of.

We record in the same room for the first time in over 80 episodes. We are joined by Tara's partner Ben to play and review Hello, a game designed to start conversations about the end of life. We discuss everything from who we'd turn to in a health crisis to what we want our funerals to be like.

Even as people who often talk about death all the time we were surprised how much the questions made us think.

Episode 80. Using metaphor to understand our grief

This week Talcott goes on a metaphorical journey as he makes sense of some of the feelings around being a widow. We also discuss why reading about death and dying is so much harder for us than hearing about it, and make just an unreasonable number of Star Trek references.

Episode 79. Getting the Remains

We try a new format as Talcott records some in the moment reactions to getting, and getting rid of his wife's ashes. We talk about how a comfort for some is a weirdly unsettling item for others, and how our reactions to new stages of grief can surprise us.
