In Part 2 of this Bonus Minisode, we go inside a special podcast booth at the Farewelling Launch Party in New York City! Party guests sip Champagne and step into the world of farewelling, where they freely share their opinions and feelings about death, dying, and how they want to be remembered. From stories of one woman’s grandfather etching his own tombstone (!) to children fighting over their parents’ estates, folks of all ages and backgrounds open up about how death touches us and whether we should even think about it.
There Was a Line Outside the Podcast Booth Door All Night Long!
Guests at the Farewelling Launch Party in Manhattan become guests on Farewelling: The Podcast! The team at editaud.io opens a special recording session right in the middle of the celebration, and the conversation is fascinating. Regular folks from all walks of life grab the mic and talk about how they view death and dying, whether their families were open (or not!) about the topic, and how they’ve dealt with grief in their own lives. Is it okay to have a dress code (or a costume party!) at a funeral? What’s the right thing to say to someone who is grieving? What do you do if a child asks you about death? And what makes a good life, anyway?
