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.

Through Death’s Lens – Death: the podcast – It’s New Orleans

Only two things are guaranteed to happen but once in a lifetime: birth and death.


 Emmy award-winning cinematographer and occasional churchyard dumpster diver Bob Perrin beautifully captures the latter with indelible images of his region’s most notorious burial grounds.


 Now battling prostate cancer while losing his own wife to Alzheimer’s Disease, Bob joins Arian for a poignant discussion on the inherent sadness and beauty of loving what eventually disappears.
