Death: the podcast

New Orleans has a unique relationship to death: we have a ridiculously high murder rate, we party at funerals, and we end up above ground. Death: the podcast tells the stories of personal experiences of death - fear of it, laughing at it, life-changing brushes with it, dealing with lost loved ones, and our own inevitable and unknown heart-stopping moment. Through confronting death we learn what it is to be alive.

Pamela Skjolsvik never dreamed that a misrouted phone call would change the course of her master’s thesis and, ultimately, her life.

What if we could schedule our own death? How does a person cope with his or her impending execution? What is the loneliest kind of grief? Join Pamela and Arian as they delve into the transformative power of death.
