    Season 2, Episode 6: Jules Evans – The Art of Losing Control


    After a spontaneous Near Death Experience, Jules Evans finds philosophy and puts his life back together in his hit book “Philosophy for Life.” But the ecstasy he experienced in his NDE always haunted him and in his second book “The Art of Losing Control” he sets out in search of it in all the ways people seek ecstatic experiences. We discuss this new book and all the blessings and dark sides of seeking and sometimes finding ecstasy.

    Season 2, Episode 5: Elizabeth Minnich – The Evil Of Banality


    Elizabeth Minnich has spent the last few decades studying how genocides happen and her findings may surprise you. It turns out to pull off the biggest evils, you need a very particular kind of person, a thoughtless kind that is dependable and does his or her job. Genocides take logistics. This conversation is a ringing clarion call to bring thoughtfulness into all aspects of life.

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.
