Hi, I'm Morgan, Founder of Death Dialogue.
I'm a strong believer that death is not a dirty word and is a topic worthy of conversation.
In 2012 I got a call from my dad saying my mom, whom I had seen just two days prior, was dead. With nothing to lose, I packed up my things and traveled the world. I was looking for an escape, what I found was connection. In every country I visited, I found stories of people who had lost loved ones and were questioning their mortality. I returned from that trip dedicated to telling those stories and talking about death and dying in a world that doesn’t.
My work spans multiple platforms and conversations: I write, teach a grief expression workshop, and create interactive art installations and social experiments through my production company, Death Dialogue, for people to engage with this conversation and each other. When I'm not trying to convince people to read William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying, I live and travel in my 1970 VW bus named Bessie.
DIEalogue is a culmination of the questions, curiosities, and stories i've gathered through my work with Death Dialogue.
Through my work with Death Dialogue, I'm constantly hearing new and interesting stories that touch on universal themes of living and dying. Yet when I open my podcast app, it seems that few people are exploring these themes. Sure, there are some amazing podcasts that start to touch on it, but I have yet to find one is as in-depth as I like.
So I decided to fill the gap and make the podcast I want to hear.
This isn’t a podcast only for people who have lost someone — there are many amazing resources for that — this is a podcast for people who want to explore what it means to be alive.
