Death Yo! | Brine Podcast S2. E5 with D.S. Moss

This episode of my podcast features D.S. Moss, host of the top-ranked podcast (#30 in 2017 by The Atlantic) The Adventures of Memento Mori:  A Cynic's Guide for Learning to Live by Remembering to Die.

If you havenʻt listened to his show you should (but start AFTER you listen to this episode of course!) and if you are curious about what you will experience, D.S. describes his show as exploring the science, mysticism, culture and mystery of death. Each episode is both satirical and philosophical, and follows D.S. as he attempts to reconcile his own impermanence and living a more meaningful life… but the problem is, life keeps getting in the way!

Our conversations is about how D.S (a film lover and screen writer) leveraged his talent and passion for storytelling into a cool podcast about the magic of memento mori… and somewhat on a whim no less. There is certainly more than one strategy to living life to its fullest but this is one of the more unique backstories, which showcases how serendipity can merge with intense curiosity to further a person’s personal vision and mission in very unexpected ways. We also talk about how delving into the topic of memento mori and having conversations with mystics, monks and morticians has changed him as a human.
