A perfect night to die
I’m a great fan of podcasts and ‘a perfect night to die’ is my new favourite. Death is a subject that few want to talk about. Mark Aston reminds us that this is an important (probably the most important) subject to talk about. However, it’s not all about death...He also brings us some very funny and sometimes heart breaking stories about love, relationships and the stuff that really matters.
Thank you for this amazing story!
Never thought the subject of death will make me feel so fascinated and that it has a joyful side to it apart from more stereotypical fearful.
