Now that we’ve shared a couple of lists of our favourite Oscar-winning movies, TV series, Netflix documentaries, games and songs that explore the themes of death, dying, grief and loss; we’re moving on with another list of some of our favourite podcasts that focus on similar themes. Without further ado, here are some of our favourite podcasts about death and grief, in no particular order.
The Art of Dying Well
Available on SoundCloud.
Host: St Mary’s University
The folks at The Centre of the Art of Dying Well at St Mary’s University always start each episode by saying that they’re trying to “make death and dying something we can all talk about openly without discomfort or fear”. Each month, they interview a guest on a key topic and engage in a little ‘death chatter’.
