7:00am Communication Mixdown 

Molly Carlile calls herself 'the deathtalker' - that's because she thinks communicating about death in our culture has been either truncated or entirely silenced. On Communication Mixdown this week, she explains why, providing a useful context for the significance of Dying To Know Day.

August 8th is the 5th annual Dying To Know Day, an initiative which aims to encourage communication about the way we think about, and plan for the end of life. Individuals and communities will be hosting events across the country.

Communication Mixdown can be heard Thursdays 6:00pm
