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’.

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.
