Death: a podcast about love, grief and hope

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:23 pm on 13 June 2019

Eight years ago, long-time journalist and Newshub Managing Editor Mark Longley went through the worst thing that can happen to a parent: his daughter Emily was murdered, aged just 17.

Now, he's written and presented a new podcast examining death: how we talk about it. How we mourn. how we cope. And why people find it so hard to talk about it.

He joins us to talk about the process of making the podcast, and what he learned from his experience.
