A compelling podcast series 'A Life and Death Conversation', was launched recently by Dr. Bob Uslander to help listeners become more comfortable and “friendlier” with the concept of death.
This show provides public access to some of the rich conversations Dr. Bob and his Integrated MD Care (IMDC) team are privileged to as a result of their unique medical practice, assisting patients in creating and experiencing their “best death", and the best life leading up to it.
The podcast features guests who are preparing for their death, family members who have supported loved ones through illness and death, authors and experts on grief and loss, and professionals who are working in palliative care and end-of-life care.
Also featured in the podcast are author and life coach, Diane Forster, discussing how her suicidal ideation ultimately led her to insights on how to live the rest of her life with purpose and passion, and Dr. Ken Druck, a well-known author and resilience expert discussing the loss of his daughter and how death and suffering make us face and address our biggest fears.
“Every day I talk with people about life and death, and while sometimes difficult, these conversations are often teaming with insight and inspiration. I feel compelled to pull others into the conversation as well,” said the creator and host of the podcast, Dr. Bob. “Our goal is to change how people view, talk about, plan for, and experience the last phase of their life, including their death. Now, with the intimate nature of this podcast, many more people will have access to these raw and honest conversations that have us not only ask the question about how we experience death, but most importantly, help us look at how we are experiencing life.”
The podcast is free and a new episode is launched each week on Friday mornings. “A Life and Death Conversation” can be found in iTunes. The podcast can also be accessed directly from the IMDC website, http://integratedmdcare.com/category/podcast/
