A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die is an entertaining and educational online radio show. The show is hosted by Gail Rubin, CT, a Certified Thanatologist (a fancy name for a death educator), and a Certified Funeral Celebrant who helps start pre-need funeral planning conversations with humor.
A Good Goodbye podcasts are available on FuneralRadio.com and at AGoodGoodbye.com. Host Gail Rubin, The Doyenne of Death® brings a light touch to a serious subject and presents expert interviews on “everything you need to know before you go.” The Internet radio program covers a wide range of critical information most people don’t consider until there’s a death in the family.
Rubin authored an award-winning book and hosts an award-winning television/DVD series also called A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die. The book, TV program and radio interviews offer practical insights into the party no one wants to plan BEFORE someone dies. She also created Mortality Minute radio spots.
By planning ahead and having a conversation, families can reduce stress at a time of grief, minimize family conflict, save money and create a meaningful, memorable “good goodbye.” Topics include funeral planning, cremation, cemeteries, green burial and eco-friendly funerals, life celebrations, pet loss, insurance, estate planning, cost management options, end-of-life issues and much more.
“Allowing audiences to listen in on conversations about death and funeral planning issues empowers individuals to discuss these topics with their families and take action,” explained Rubin. “Each interview illustrates my motto: Talking about sex won’t make you pregnant, and talking about funerals won’t make you dead.”
