Excellent Information for the Respectfully Morbidly Obsessed

This is a wonderful podcast. I Was made aware of this podcast from Caitlyn Doughty's YouTube channel (AskAMortician). The information these podcasts give are so needed in today world. Death Positivity in today's age, is seen as disturbing. Gross. Weird. But it isn't. Our bodies after we pass on should have a choice other than the basic cremation/burial trope. To embrace ALL there is to being human, is to embrace the fact that we are, like everything else known on earth, mortal. Once you are born, you are sure to bet you will die in 100 years or so. These women are so brave to brace the internets glaring avoidance of what they try everyday to help others with.Stay strong fellow #Deathlings the #OrderoftheGoodDeath, has got your back.⚰️❤️💀❤️⚰️

Embrace death!

Informative and entertaining, Death in the Afternoon provides frank but respectful discussions of death and dying within our cultural idiom, exploring the genesis our various misconceptions about death, what really happens to our corporeal selves upon dying, and encouraging us to embrace death positivitity without ever bordering on negativity or nihilism. Wonderful and highly recommended!
