  1. Thanks for this! I’ve flagged the book to-read amongst my giant pile of things I want to read. I first came across green burials about 7 years ago with someone I was then-FB friends with after her husband passed away. He had a green burial somewhere in the mid-west. I was intrigued ever since but figured I wouldn’t be able to have something like that when the time came.

    Also, thanks for having a diverse array of people on your podcast. Y’all continue to put together great guests and conversations that I really enjoy.

  2. Thanks for this–it was so timely. My wife and I were just talking about this yesterday and were wondering how to make it possible when that time arrives.

  3. Elizabeth is charming. Great interview and so informative. All the things i didn’t know…. Thanks for providing this kind of content.
