There is no magic in a tarot card, but the insights and conversations sparked by a tarot reading are often nothing short of magical. Join designer and thanatologist Cole Imperi each week along with her guest as tarot helps them to explore life, our fears and struggles, our dreams and ambitions.
Episode 021 - Kayla
Meet Kayla! I have a treat for you today involving time travel—listen to my interview via tarot reading with Kayla in May of 2018 and get an update from her since that tarot reading in October of 2019! This was an incredible reading and Kayla’s update is truly that, an update. She’s had quite a lot happen in her life since her reading.
La Petite Mortisode - No. 20
Closure vs. Understanding…..what are you seeking? In my work as a death companion and in my work as a thanatologist, I see how people handle and process loss. Even myself. Do you tend to seek closure, or understanding? In this Mortisode, learn the difference.
Episode 020 - Simon
In this episode, you get to meet Simon. I’ve known Simon since 2011 when I met him on a trip to Israel. He’s in Paris, France now, and I’m in Kentucky. We connected over tarot cards in Israel all those years ago (because I brought a deck with me) and now you get to hear us connect over tarot cards again. Same deck! His interview came at a time of transition for him and he sent in an update which you can hear at the end of the episode. Almost a year passed between the time of his initial interview and his update!
La Petite Mortisode - No. 19
There’s a name for the period of time after a loss and before you feel ‘normal’ again—those are called lilac days. In this episode, we talk about the lilac days, self care vs. community care, and ways to support your community. If you are grieving or you know someone who is, knowing about the Lilac Days might help you on your journey.
Episode 019 - Death Companioning with Guest Lucinda Herring
In this episode, meet Lucinda Herring, author of Reimagining Death, Licensed Funeral Director and long-time home funeral guide. Why is she on this podcast? So we can talk about Death Companioning and Lucinda’s work in this field. In addition to this, I share a lot of updates—and definitely get emotional. My sister Christina died, I share my grief and bring you up to speed with the happenings of your favorite (I hope!) American Thanatologist.
La Petite Mortisode - No. 18
What’s the difference between sympathy and empathy? How do you write a sympathy note (better yet, what should you NOT write in a sympathy note)? I share the most popular article I ever wrote (from way back in April of 2012 all about sympathy notes) and if anything’s changed. As this episode is airing during the holiday season, I want to say: if you are grieving, struggling, mourning or otherwise, I encourage you to check in with what you need this holiday season to feel happy and full and to check in with what makes you feel sad and empty. You get to choose how you spend your time and I want to encourage you to take care of yourself.

I started to think of Tarot as a prompt this summer, and it changed my whole experience with it. Cole is the next step. She approaches Tarot with a Magical Intellectualism I really appreciate. Highly recommend.
I have so much love and respect for Cole. I haven’t learned, and continue to learn, so much from her.
Pack your baggage!
I stumbled across this podcast by searching for “Tarot” and I thought the logo was the prettiest thing ever. After listening to episode one I was hooked. After episode one of the L.P.M. I was sobbing and I’m not one to cry over entertainment. Since then I’ve pretty much sobbed over every episode at least once because this wonderful lady had the answers to questions I refused to ask myself. If you have a rough background or if you are having a hard time with just about anything in your life . I urge you to listen to this podcast it will change you to your truest self. Thank you to all who help support and produce the podcast you’ve helped me so much.
