Welcome to the home of our Art of Dying Well podcasts. These monthly programmes aim to make death and dying something we can talk about openly without discomfort or fear. Each month we interview a guest on a key topic, engage in a little ‘death chatter’ before getting the 'View from the Chaplain’s chair’.

Episode 13: How do you tell a child about the death of a pet?

A pet can be a child’s closest friend, a faithful companion and comforter sharing the child’s joys and disappointments and dispensing unconditional love by its mere presence and touch.

Episode 12: Time to talk about death

I can’t believe it has almost been a year since the last Art of Dying Well podcast but we’re back talking death and dying and all the issues surrounding this difficult but very human journey.

Episode 11: Am I allowed to grieve?

Something’s not right. You’ve not heard from your father-in-law for a few weeks. You’re close. That’s not normal. The milk’s on the doorstep, yesterday’s papers are poking out of the letterbox. You know what’s happened but you don’t want to think it – let alone say it. This is exactly what happened to Erica Buist. Listen to her extraordinary story in this month’s podcast. Fr George Bowen gives The View From The Chaplain’s Chair.
