Our ‘Art of Dying Well’ podcasts aim to make death and dying something we can talk about openly without discomfort or fear. Each month we interview a guest on a key topic, engage in a little ‘death chatter’ before getting the view from the ‘chaplain’s chair’.

November's Art of Dying Well podcast, fittingly, looks at remembrance. It is right that we remember the fallen of our wars and conflicts this month listening to a reflection from Fr Michael Fava from the Bishopric of the Forces. We also wanted to shine a light on how other cultures, traditions and faiths commemorate and pray for their dead. We listen to four interesting perspectives.

An ageing population has a significant impact on care services, so for this month's 'Art of Dying Well' podcast, we're looking at how we care for elderly people nearing the end of life. To do this, we've brought in our guest reporter Nina Mattiello Azadeh. Nina visited The Charterhouse - a former Carthusian monastery in the heart of London, founded in 1611, that provides accommodation to a community of elderly residents known as 'Brothers'. Nina speaks to two Brothers and the Revd Robin...

This is the first ever ‘Art of Dying Well’ podcast. What is it? Simply put it’s a monthly programme that aims to make death and dying something we can talk about openly without discomfort or fear. Dying well means different things to different people. Death is an individual experience, but a community of accompaniment on the journey can help us to prepare by bringing consolation and spiritual peace. In this podcast we cover child bereavement with Sue McDermott from the charity Rainbows GB,...
