Death in the Afternoon; a podcast about all things mortal from The Order of the Good Death.
Welcome to your mortality, humans! The first two seasons of this deathcast dispelled myths about death and dead bodies, dived into history and dark tales you’ve never heard before, and hopefully made you less afraid to talk about the inevitable.
Your death nerd hosts, Caitlin Doughty, Sarah Chavez, and Louise Hung, are the same team behind the web series Ask a Mortician, whose aim is to educate their audience about death in a unique, relatable, and entertaining way; and sometimes (ok, all the time) they let things get delightfully bizarre.
The first two complete seasons of Death in the Afternoon spanned seventeen episodes that were downloaded by well over 1 million listeners, and garnered rave reviews. You can find transcripts of all season one and two episodes, plus extras and behind the scenes info for each episode on the Death in the Afternoon section of our website.
In 2022 we returned for a third season, with a new format featuring conversations with the fascinating people working in the death space (not outer space), to make our end-of-life experience more accessible, eco-friendly, and affordable. Episodes also include audio versions of of your favorite articles from the Order Archives.
