Death: the podcast

Hosted ByDr Arian Elfant

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.

The Living Urn – Death: the podcast – It’s New Orleans

Co-founders Mark Brewer, Mike Walas and Brandon Patty were on a mission: to create an eco-friendly way of honoring the dead.  

After years of working with leading soil scientists and arborists, The Living Urn was born.  With its biodegradable planting systems now available online and in over 250 Funeral Homes nationwide, The Living Urn is transforming the death care industry, one memorial tree at a time.
