Megan begins by telling Bart about Death Salon, a knowledge and art project she directs and curates in an attempt to open up conversations and engagement with the subject of death. What is death denial? How has death been sanitized and hidden in popular culture? What do Megan and Bart both see as a good secular response to death?
Also in this conversation:
- The ‘professionalization’ of death, and how the culture has changed the way we see the process that happens after we die
- The typical ‘look’ and style of people in the ‘death positivity’ movement
- How this shared interest is not only about death but about life, and how Death Salon has become a life-affirming community
- Why men and women may think differently about death and how body image may affect it
- Making the most out of life

Kester Brewin is no longer a believer in a God, but holds some “theology” and “Christianity” even so. Bart and Kester have a transatlantic chat about life after belief and how they’ve both ended up in different places.
