063: Nobody Makes It Out Alive!


Van Wilder reminds us to enjoy the moment, warning us "Don't take life too seriously, you'll never make it out alive." And while this is a jocular take on our own mortality, the truth is such that the total cost of death isn't levied against the dead, it's wrought upon the living - the ones left behind. To ease their transition in the wake of loss, we can prepare for own departure; and, provide a plan for our own digital landscape and social networks.

This week, inspired in part by a post-mortem checklist created by Chrissy LeMaire, the crew shares their thoughts and experiences with death. And what steps they've taken—or not yet taken—to ease the terrible, yet inevitable, burden on our loved ones.
