    How Other Cultures Care For Their Dead—And What We Can Learn From Them

    The start of a new year is often a time of reflection and after the last few challenging pandemic ones, that might also mean dwelling on feelings of loss or grief. This week, Lale chats with the creator of a podcast called The Order of the Good Death. She’s Caitlin Doughty, a mortician, the owner of a funeral home in Los Angeles, and an advocate of funeral reform. She’s toured the world exploring death rituals—from Barcelona to Mexico to Indonesia to Bolivia to Japan—on a quest to discover where death has the most dignity, and what we can learn from it. Plus, we hear from a listener who traveled to Ireland and may, or may not, have encountered the spirit of a legendary Irish poet.

Women and rravel

I love listening to all the travel stories. Empowering and courageous ways of experiencing culture and environment provide me with memories of my past travels as well as some future dreams of places I have yet to visit! I’m now 75 and ready for more,,,,

From upbeat to somber

While I appreciate the show’s new direction since Meredith (the old host) left, the show’s tone has gotten much more somber. Travel is supposed to fun, thrilling and exciting - not just somber soul searching! Bring the fun and laughter back.
