“Funeral Stories,” a new, Athens-based comedy podcast that aims to change the way people contemplate and talk about death, hosts an official launch party Monday at Go Bar featuring a live recording of an episode. Audience members are encouraged to participate for chances to win gifts from 14 sponsors—including a three-night stay on Amelia Island, FL—and the live recording will be followed by a dance party led by DJ Twin Powers. Co-hosts Laura Brooker and Casey Maleno have created a platform for people to share their personal stories of death, loss and grief—and to hopefully find humor and solace along the way. New episodes are posted every Wednesday on iTunes.
Casey and Laura celebrate the release of the Funeral Stories Podcast with a live recording, prizes and live music by DJ Twin Powers. See Calendar Pick on p. 20.
