While We’re Still Alive-A Conversation with Kate Sweeney

sweeney.kate_SWEENEY_American-Afterlife_cvr_fnl-copyKate Sweeney, “pretty cheerful person” and author of the fantastic American Afterlife: Encounters in the Customs of Mourning, comes on the show to talk about her book and much more. Many of the questions we ask were crafted by Jay’s Creative Non-Fiction students at James Madison University. Kudos to them for giving us such varied and interesting ways with which to build a conversation. Also, Kate gets us to tell the riveting story of how our podcast got its name.
