The Art of Dying Well
About This Show
Our ‘Art of Dying Well’ podcasts 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 3: Life. Death. Whatever.
< 1 day ago
There's a good reason we've called this initiative the 'Art of Dying Well'.
There really is an art to living well and an art to dying well - and it's clear the two are intrinsically linked.
This month we're delighted to have Louise Winter in the studio.
Louise is a funeral professional and founder of Poetic Endings - a creative funeral provider. She's also editor of The Good Funeral Guide.
Louise started work on the front line in the fashion industry but a 'quarter-life crisis' saw a switch of focus to helping grieving people to put together the best possible funeral for their loved one.
We also talk about 'Life. Death. Whatever.' - a highly creative, though-provoking and interactive exibition looking at life, death and everything in-between. The stated aim of the exhibition is pretty close to ours here at the Art of Dying Well: "Working to re-design the dialogue about death and dying, to open it up and to find new approaches to this fundamental subject".
Louise is so engaging that we over indulged ourselves and hence 'Death Chatter' takes a month off but we finish with a beautiful reflection on Christ's sacrifice and the road to Calvary in 'The View from the Chaplain's Chair'.
