Gripping stories, excellent audio

This is a beautiful podcast full of stories of people for whom death is imminent. I could listen to host Gina Scull's voice all day. The pacing is perfect, and there is such a diversity of storytellers who each have different regrets in the lives they've lived. Listening to this will help me live my life to the fullest.

Excellent podcast

We have become removed from the process of dying and it has become stigmatized rather than being thought of as a natural life event. This excellent podcast sheds light on the process from several different circumstances. My mother said that when she was young the dead were placed in the parlor of the house and family and friends would visit. This was more intimate, not about cost and showmanship. Maybe they came to terms with and understood death better because of it. I appreciate this podcast and hope they will do more.
