Death: the podcast

New Orleans has a unique relationship to death: we have a ridiculously high murder rate, we party at funerals, and we end up above ground. Death: the podcast tells the stories of personal experiences of death - fear of it, laughing at it, life-changing brushes with it, dealing with lost loved ones, and our own inevitable and unknown heart-stopping moment. Through confronting death we learn what it is to be alive.

Comparative Death

Journalist travels the world investigating death rituals

 

Justin Nobel

NEW ORLEANS, Mar 7 – Justin Nobel is a freelance journalist who goes where other journalists don’t. “It’s easier to sell stories if nobody else is writing about them.”

There aren’t too many people in Japan tracking down the truth aboutt Granny Dump Mountain, the possibly mythical peak where young men carry their aged grandparents to freeze to death.

In other parts of Asia, “Lonely Death” is no myth, it’s all too real. Families abandon the elderly in the top floors of high-rise apartments where they die alone. Their lifeless bodies are frequently not found for weeks, months, and in some cases years after their death.

Nobel also reports from other parts of the world about joyful death parties and changing trends in our own country that include fashion for the deceased known as “death wear.”

Justin Nobel is a young man with a remarkable flair for observation and reporting. His strangely non-morbid fascination with death makes for a fascinating and illuminating conversation with Dr. Arian Elfant on this edition of Death: the podcast, Dr Elfant’s continuing exploration of our relationship with death.

The Sculptured Mind of Beverly Morris

New Orleans artist lives with an inoperable brain tumor, on Death: the podcast

 

Beverly Morris

NEW ORLEANS, Feb 22 – On this week’s edition of “Death: the podcast,” psychologist Arian Elfant talks with New Orleans artist and yoga teacher, Beverly Morris, about living with an inoperable brain tumor.

Beverly has had three surgeries, four years of chemotherapy, and a lifetime dose of radiation. 

Talking about her surgery, Beverly tells Dr. Elfant, “I remember eventually coming home and just being so grateful to be alive. I remember looking around and going, ‘Am I in heaven?’”

When anyone is singled out for suffering, there is a tendency to ask, “Why me?” Beverly’s response to that is, ““Why not me? Maybe I was given this brain cancer to learn some things I really needed to learn to help other people with brain cancer.  It really could happen to anyone and I have never gotten into that place of “why me?””

This is a frank and inspirational conversation about impending death, and the focus it brings to appreciating life, living each day, each moment, as if it was your last.

“This is a really precious thing,” Beverly says,  “That I can talk, that I can walk, that I can speak.”

Dr. Arian Elfant, host of Death: the podcast

 

Death: the podcast

NEW ORLEANS, Feb 10 – New Orleans psychologist Arian Elfant’s new venture, “Death: the podcast,” needs little explanation.

“It’s a podcast. About death,” Says Dr. Elfant. “I considered more obscure titles, but given that I’m setting out to tackle a subject directly that we mostly talk around or avoid altogether, I decided to go with a title that is as open and candid as the show.”

The podcast is, indeed, a frank look at death. Through conversation with people who have had a brush with it, or are currently staring it in the face.  

Dr. Elfant’s lead-off show features a mother of three who lost her own mother as a teenager and is now reliving her mother’s fate with her own recent cancer diagnosis.

Other shows introduce a “death blogger” who travels the world experiencing death rituals, and an artist with an inoperable brain tumor.

Dr. Elfant says, “These conversations are always very moving. Sometimes quite sad. But ultimately, understanding death teaches us about life. We walk away from these conversations enriched. With a deeper understanding of other people’s lives and our own.”

Death: the podcast is on iTunes, Stitcher, and other podcast apps. It can also be found on local podcast website itsneworleans.com

The podcast is produced by veteran audio engineer Eric Murrell for INO Broadcasting, best known locally for popular podcasts Happy Hour and Out to Lunch, also on NPR station WWNO.
