Death. We should talk about it ALL. End of Life Planning, Logistics and Disney World...and Mushrooms.
Play • 46 min

Death. It's pretty much the only thing we can count on. Whether you want to think about it or not, it happens to us all. But why are we so scared of actually TALKING about it? In this episode, TTJ(es) invite two friends into the room, one who is having to face the reality of her own mortality much sooner than any of us would expect. Together, they tackle end of life planning, the logistics around how they would like their body handled after they die, and all the different options they didn't know existed.
If you are curious about the death positivity movement, need to pull the trigger (pun intended!) and write that will, or the idea of either being buried in a mushroom suit or having your ashes scattered at Disney World intrigues you, this episode will leave you with the resolve to go out and talk to your loved ones about what you want, as well as what THEY need.
