    85 - Discussing death in Iran | Elica Le Bon

    85 - Discussing death in Iran | Elica Le Bon

    Elica Le Bon joins us in discussing death in Iran and how the death of Mahsa Amini sparked a movement in Iran.  Elica is a defense attorney and activist for the last 10 years. She shares her families history in Iran and educates us on what is currently happening in that part of the world. We tap into the desensitizing of death in the country of Iran, her efforts to save the lives of Iranian people, its current landscape and more personal discussions of how her own family has suffered. Although this is a powerful discussion with graphic discussions that may be triggering it is very honest and down to earth between two very sarcastic humans trying to lighten the mood the best we can.

Normal people talking about death...which should be normal.

This is the conversation humanity needs right now.
Sure, death is a discussion taking place on other podcasts, maybe even on a more esoteric/academic level or debating belief systems like religion vs atheists and even from the 1st person perspectives of someone dying.
But this podcast is about how we as normal humans experience death second hand through watching someone close to you dying, and how we process and deal with all the emotions and everything else that inevitably confronts during those moments.
And although we are all different and will approach this issue differently...there are more similarities in understanding our mortality than not...and it manifests itself in acceptance and love.
