Latest podcast: The Art of Dying Well – What Have We Learned?

In this seasonal episode we look back over five years of the Art of Dying Well podcast, drawing on the rich repository of wisdom contributed by our guests, sharing some of their most interesting insights on death, dying and grief, and how to cope. In this bumper edition host James Abbott hears from Sally Bundock, Julia Samuel, Greg Wise, Dr Kathryn Mannix, Professor Julia Riley, Dr Eric Clarke, Dr Lynn Basset, poet Audrey Ardern-Jones, and more. We’re celebrating the ground we’ve covered since we started broadcasting when one of our main aims was to make living and dying well something we’re all much more comfortable talking about.
