The Influencer Podcast

Jul 19, 2023

In today’s episode, we’re going to talk about something that has never been talked about before on this podcast, and that’s the topic of death. Now, this episode is not for the faint of heart, and if the idea of death makes you squeamish or uncomfortable (and rightfully so!), my conversation with today’s guest, John Christian Phifer of Larkspur Conservation, might help you break the ice around death and demystify this topic that many of us find foreign and scary! 

In this episode, John and I talk about how death influences the way we live, how to initiate conversations about death with our loved ones, how to come to terms with our own mortality, and Larkspur Conservation’s mission to preserve and restore land through natural barrier burial. 

Through my conversation John, you will learn to embrace the beauty of both life & death and hopefully begin your own journey of acceptance toward mortality. If you want to live your life to the absolute fullest and never take a day for granted, you’re going to want to listen to this episode.
