Meshel Laurie's Nitty Gritty Committee

Final Days And Death Cafés

Season 1, Ep. 49
Let’s talk about the very thing we like to talk about the least. From why we need to teach our kids about it, to what makes a nice death and what happens in your final days. Through conversations with a palliative care nurse who has seen many a last breath and has some eerie ghost stories to share, and a woman who runs ‘death cafés’, Meshel Laurie explores the guts and glory of death. We can’t avoid it (despite our best efforts) so let’s talk about it.
