    I am so excited for this week's episode with the iconic Claire Yurika, aka The High Priestexx, and founder of Hangar and the more recently Cogdis Studio. Over a zoom from Ibiza to Dublin we spoke about toxic positivity and how it has captivated our generation, as well as why endings are not bad, how Tarot can relate to Death. We listened to some banging tunes, amongst others some hits from Erykah Badu and System of a Down. Claire had her own funeral down to a T and it was an absolute pleasure to enjoy her talk about it.
