This week on the podcast, we continue our meditations on death. Our After Life episode had eleven meditations, and now we’re gonna throw a new one at you each day, all week long, culminating in a very special treat at the end of the week.
To get things started, Jad talks to Mary Roach about a bold claim she made in an article for the New Scientist. Read more about science's attempts to understand the afterlife in Mary's book, Spook. By the way that beautiful song, 'Old Fashion Morphine' is by Jolie Holland, off her album Escondida.
