The Dying Matters Podcast - Let's Talk About It

"Why should we be talking about death and dying? For the first episode of our new series, we talk to two people who have decided to spend their time helping others to have those difficult conversations. Megan Mooney, who runs a death cafe, and Barbara Altounyan, the Hospice Biographer, tell us about their work and explain just why having these conversations is so important for all of us."

Gerald's note: The second part of this interview, with Hospice Biographer Barbara Altounyan, was inspirational. I have been considering options for the use of Narrative Therapy and podcasts for the dying for a few years and this interview had me on the edge of my seat. I would like to be able to provide therapy while giving clients the option to share their stories and this podcast has me considering new options.
