Episode Info:

Pop into most cafes and you'll quite easily find tea and cake. Pop into a Death Cafe and you'll be served much more.

At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake and drink tea - as you might expect - but they also gather to discuss death.

Death has a stigma of being morbid to bring up and especially to talk about. There's that superstition that you are inviting death closer by discussing it. However, thousands of groups in 51 countries have met up with one another to discuss our finite lives and the inevitable.

Death Cafe co-founder, Sue Barsky Reid joins me on the podcast. Sue is a psychotherapist and counsellor, skills she used to the full when creating the Death Cafe concept with her late son, Jon Underwood.

Sue tells us why they founded Death Café and how and why this social enterprise has gone from strength to strength.
