  1. I loved this podcast, specifically the part where Michael discusses how he dealt with his father’s passing. My day job is actually in the death care industry and I find the whole process so freaky and gross and this makes so much more sense. Thank you for your blog!

    • Thank you Biki! I’m hoping to have a guest on the podcast to address this very issue. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
