Notes on grief, anxiety, & the afterlife with Dr James Morland
Welcome to the Imposters Club, a podcast helping you fight the voice in your head telling you that you aren’t good enough, brought to you by almost-thirty-something best friends, Sinéad Kennedy Krebs and Melissa Murdock.
In the sixth episode, Sinéad and Melissa are joined by Dr James Morland, a postdoctoral researcher on the Wellcome-funded Pathologies of Solitude project at Queen Mary University of London. They delve into the not-so-depressing realm of death, from how to support loved ones during times of grief, to deep anxieties about the afterlife (or lack thereof), finding a universal language through poetry, and talking about what you want your funeral to be like with your flatmates.
We’d love to hear your stories of feeling like an imposter, so email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and each episode we’ll be sharing some on the podcast.
