Death is one of the most universal experiences we have, yet nobody talks about it. We run, we hide, we push dead people away and ya know what? That’s dumb. This is going to be a place where we don’t do that. We’re gonna talk about it, cry about it, jump into the weird hard stuff, and hopefully laugh about the inevitability of it all. Every week, host Chesea Quinn will cover a different theme or topics related to death and meet a few different people who have stories and experiences to share. Let’s do this all – we’re all literally dying anyway.
On our first real episode of Literally Dying, I figured it was a good time to talk about first real death experiences. My guests Caitlin Lemaire, Keith Carey, Laura Hardin, and Rye Silverman all had very different things to say on the matter. I mean Caitlin LITERALLY died herself… I know I usually use that word incorrectly, so you might find it hard to trust me, but trust me. She did. Keith, as usual, says a bunch of stuff that makes me roll my eyes and worry about my family listening. Laura shares what it’s like to watch parents talk to their kids about death at the mortuary. Spoiler: they’re not great at it. And we meet Rye for the first time, who chimes in with a quick story about her dad. I also share some stories people submitted to me on Facebook, ramble on for too long about George Bell, and don’t fully understand how to make the sound work properly. (PLEASE be patient with me, guys! I know the sound on this episode isn’t awesome but we’ll keep getting better. Don’t let that turn you off!) Oh also, you will hear us say the word literally way too many times. #LiterallyDying #StateLines. State-Lines.com
