BJ Miller: An Expert on Death Talks About Life
Amanda Palmer presents an intimate conversation with BJ Miller. Recorded May 9th, 2019 in Marin, CA. BJ currently sees patients and families via telehealth through Mettle Health, a company he co-founded with the aim to provide personalized, holistic consultations for any patient or caregiver who needs help navigating the practical, emotional and existential issues that come with serious illness and disability. At the age of 19, BJ was electrocuted and lost 3 of his limbs. This accident led him down a path of studying art history and eventually towards his career of palliative care. His 2015 TED Talk, entitled “What Really Matters at the End of Life” presented BJ’s perspective on death. BJ is also the subject of the 2018 Netflix documentary, “End Game.” His book, “A Beginner’s Guide to the End: Practical Advice for Living Life and Facing Death,” was released last year. The Washington Post called it, “a gentle, knowledgeable guide to a fate we all share.” We talked about art history as therapy, living life as an art composition, the relationship between limitations and creativity, making the best of your situation and the allusion of independence. @bjmillermd @Mettle_Health TED: A Beginner's Guide to the End: Practical Advice for Living Life and Facing Death: No ads.
