Episode Description:

Stephen Jenkinson made keen observations in his decades working with the dying. The author of Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul observed that our high-technology medical system often makes things harder for dying people. When a patient or their family bargains for "More Time" through radiology or chemotherapy or drugs, it "bears no resemblance to the More Time they bargained for." Thanks to medical intervention, they're not dying death-free, but living longer with dying. This is a product of our death-phobic culture's intolerance of the reality of dying. How can we do it differently? See part 2. Jenkinson is the subject of the documentary film "Griefwalker." [orphanwisdom.com]
