Amazing Departures is a podcast hosted by Tyler Fraser. The mission of the show is to interview and discuss wonderful funeral services, rituals, ceremonies and practices. Tyler works to advance funeral services through technology and this podcast is his way of delving into all the amazing ways we say goodbye.
The Tolad is a walking stick scattering urn, which allows families to take a walk and spread the remains of their loved one in a sacred place. The item is under development and comes with a app. Wout Brink from Holland, who is a founding partner tells us more.
Tyler Fraser talks with National Geographic photographer Brian Lehmann on his work in Indonesia. Brian spent weeks traveling all over the country covering a fascinating funeral ritual where families preserve their loved ones and display them after death. The photography project is called The Living Dead and Brian tells us about his experience photographing it and learning about this different end of life ritual.
Our special guest this week is Robert Sarnie, he joins us to share information about Living Reef Memorials.
