Guests at the glittering Farewelling Launch Party enjoyed Champagne, sangria, charcuterie, Impossible Burger sliders...and an interactive podcast booth where the editaud.io team welcomed everyone to share thoughts, feelings and ideas about death and dying--or as we call it, farewelling. Should we plan for our own death or leave it to our families? Is it okay to laugh at funerals? And how do we want to be remembered?
Oh What a Night!
On a chilly evening in November, Farewelling: The Podcast sets up shop in the middle of the launch party in Manhattan’s Financial District. In Part 1 of this minisode, guests line up for a chance to head into the recording booth, put on headphones, and dive into podcasting...about death and dying! They answer questions about everything related to farewelling, and how they imagine it for themselves. The surprising answers involve dog statues and mashed potato bars, eco-friendly funerals, plus tips on how to leave clues for folks to find later, and what’s scary about dying.
Here are some fun photos from the party!
