Two Things You Need to Live (and Die) Well w/ Lydia Dugdale Beyond the Forum

    • Religion & Spirituality

If death is a reality, how do we need to live? Dr. Lydia Dugdale, a medical ethicist, general practitioner, and author, joins us to begin our season on The Good Life. In 2020, Lydia worked on the front lines in New York City during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. And, only a few months later, in July 2020, Lydia released her book The Lost Art of Dying. In our conversation, she discusses both her experience on the front lines and her writings on death, inviting us to consider how thinking seriously about our mortality may be key to understanding The Good Life.
