Podcast Addresses the Unthinkable and Inevitable Decision of Saying Goodbye to Aging Pet
NEW YORK: The Adventures of Memento Mori (A Cynic's Guide for Learning to Live by Remembering to Die), a podcast exploring the science, culture and mysticism of death, has released an episode about the heart-breaking decision to end the life of a four-legged family member.
By talking with vets, therapists and others, the episode provides insight into when is when? and how to properly prepare.
The Adventures of Memento Mori (A Cynic's Guide for Learning to Live by Remembering to Die) is a podcast that serves those interested in mortality and coming to terms with death. Informative and entertaining, the podcast challenges listeners to accept that they will die. By doing so, the aim is to inspire people to live the best lives possible. In each 30-minute episode, host, D.S. Moss, goes on an adventure of embracing his own mortality.
The inaugural season of the podcast landed on The Atlantic's Best 50 podcasts of 2017 at number 31. Beginning with the episode Plan on Dying and ending with Psychedelic Ego Death, each of the 14 episodes builds upon the last to create a semi-serial radio experience that informs, entertains and inspires.
In season 2, D.S. Moss uncovers how the fear of death influences everything we do; from art to religion to Trump to Instagram. The first half of the season digs into religion in Myths of Immortality and grief in Making the Call. Interested in exploring why America has such an unhealthy relationship with mortality, Moss spends the second half of the season on the road for episodes such as Meat Eater, Happiness Industrial Complex, and A Buddhist on Death Row.
