Episode #9×39: Death Doesn’t Have to be Scary (feat. Lauren Carroll of Deathwives)

  • Welcome to #Millennial, the home of pretend adulting and real DEATH talk!
  • This is your LAST chance to get this year’s physical gift by signing up at the BAE tier over on our Patreon! Sign up today, and fill out the form to receive this year’s gift: signed album art with a couple of surprise gifts (and some secret bonus content!).
  • Funeral director and home death educator Lauren Carroll of Deathwives joins us to talk about a very spooky topic: DEATH!
  • Just kidding, death doesn’t have to be scary! Without death, there can be no life.
  • Lauren soothes our fears and anxieties about death, and explains her tips for having a better relationship with it.
  • It’s decided: we’re all having water cremations. TBD on what we do with our ashes (Laura might blast hers into space).
  • Be sure to check out the Deathwives Class Library, and if you’re in the New York City area, you can get $100 off their live death doula training on 11/11/23 with code OMGIMDEAD.
  • According to home improvement app Thumbtack, 40% of millennials believe their house is haunted. While this is really just a brilliant October promotional opportunity, it inspires a conversation on the panel of our own creepy experiences with the paranormal.
  • As always, our recommendations run the gamut: ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’ on Netflix (Laura), @PersonalFinanceClub on Instagram (Andrew), and freezing your cookie dough for seamless baking this holiday season.

And in this week’s installment of After Dark:

  • The #Millennial HR team is going to have to intervene because Andrew is OUT OF CONTROL!
  • While we’re talking about death, Andy decides (by coin toss) who will be his Legacy Contact on Facebook when he dies.
  • Pam and Laura share tales of being haunted by the Facebook profiles of dead people.
  • “Hi! If you’re receiving this email, I am out of life and will not be returning ever. Go to hell.”
