The Adventures of Memento Mori: A Skeptic's Guide for Learning to Live by Remembering to Die, is podcast exploring the science, mysticism, culture and mystery of death. Satirical and philosophical, the show follows host, D.S. Moss, as he attempts to reconcile his own impermanence and live a more meaningful life. Problem is, life keeps getting in the way.
Death Over Dinner
D.S. Moss combines three of his most favorite things: people, parties, and conversations about death in the penultimate episode of Season 2
Medical Aid in Dying: Family Voices
As part of the ReImagine virtual festival celebrating Life, Loss, and Love, and in collaboration with Keeper Memorials, Death Doula LA, and Compassion and Choices, The Adventures of Memento Mori hosted a conversation about Medical Aid In Dying. Joining me were two family members whose terminally ill loved ones decided to peacefully end their own lives: Myra Shulman, daughter of Beverly, and Dan Diaz, husband of Brittany Maynard.
The Good Place
Holy Mother Forking Shirtballs! Please join D.S. Moss in a fanboy conversation with Michael Schur, creator of the NBC sitcom The Good Place, about death, the afterlife, existentialism, deontology, utilitarianism, trolley problems, even bigger pandemic problems, and how to keep your sense of humor through it all.
This spiritual road trip began with a near-death vision at a compound in rural Virginia, intersected with a death-themed Mardi Gras Krewe in New Orleans, and was steered along by a canoeing Canadian commemorating his uncle. All leading D.S. Moss to Standing Rock Reservation looking for an old stone Memento Mori den.
Ashes on the Great Water
D.S. Moss joins an intrepid Canadian for a canoe adventure of over 6.5 million paddle strokes and over 3,300 miles to honor the life of a loved one who has died. This is a story of love. It's a tale of the courage, devotion, and resilience of the human spirit in the dance with our mortality. It's about the process of healing from a broken heart after a loss so deep it could have held the deepest rivers.
C19.2 In the Twilight Up Rise Monsters
