    Introducing... Where There's A Will, There's A Wake

    Introducing... Where There's A Will, There's A Wake

    If you could plan your perfect death, what would you do?

    If you were getting married you’d consult a wedding planner, who takes you through everything from what music you're walking into, what flowers to buy and who you’re going to invite.

    Now change the word “wedding” to “funeral”...

    Kathy Burke is the host of the brand new podcast, ‘Where There’s a Will, There’s a Wake’, where she chats to her famous friends about their fantasy funeral.

    How do they want to die? Where are they going next? And who gets their prized possessions?

    It will be a hilarious, irreverent, dark and sometimes moving podcast with guests from the world of comedy, TV film and celebrity. From Dawn French to Diane Morgan, Jamali Maddix to James Acaster, our guests will see their death brought to life as they plan their final day from dawn to dusk and into the afterlife.
