Customer ReviewsSee All
I'm ahuge fan and heavy user of the We Croak app, and when an episode of the podcast arrives I'm eager to listen and learn more. The host asks good questions, and the guests are interesting. There are many podcasts about death and dying, this one is worth trying. Highly recommended.
Changed the way I think about life
Although this podcast is talking about death, it’s really about living your life with more purpose and intention. From the very first episode, this podcast (and its companion app) have helped me think differently about living in the now right up until the very end. I’ll keep listening thinking about death because the awareness that time is precious is making my life better today.
Lots of helpful and practical wisdom. Hooked, can’t wait for episodes. Thanks, and Wow!! 👍🏼
