In the podcast finale of The Adventures of Memento Mori, host D.S. Moss travels to the Catskills of New York, Chicago, Harvard, and Hawaii following a calling six years in the making - becoming a nontheist chaplain. Is the understanding that we're not entitled to tomorrow enough to truly put his money where he mic is and take a leap of faith? And is it possible to be both rational and spiritual at the same time? Please join me for one last adventure in the podcast finale - Remember to die.

2:19 Death Over Dinner
Can a dinner party help Americans to die better? According to Michael Hebb, creator of Death Over Dinner, it certainly can. D.S. Moss didn't win the "he'll try anything once trophy" for nothin', because that's exactly what he wants to find out. Besides, what's the worst that can happen when you give 8 strangers steak knives, pickle them with wine, and push the boundaries of death dialogue in between politely passing the polenta. Please join Moss as he combines three of his most favorite things: people, parties, and conversations about death in the penultimate episode of Season 2: Death Over Dinner.

2.16 Spirit Guide
It’s amazing the way things come together sometimes. What seems to be a series of random encounters string together over time culminating into a predetermined life-affirming - or in this case, afterlife affirming moment. Fate, as some people call it. This spiritual road trip began with a near-death vision at a compound in rural Virginia, intersected with a death-themed Mardi Gras Krewe in New Orleans, and was steered along by a canoeing Canadian commemorating his uncle. All leading D.S. Moss to Standing Rock Reservation looking for an old stone Memento Mori den.

2.15 Ashes on the Great Water
How far would you go to honor a loved one who has died? Would you negotiate the distance of four rivers, through the wilderness of 2 countries, 1 province, and 13 states? Would you dedicate your life to a cause? D.S. Moss is joined by Dominique Leboiron, a Canadian who canoed from Saskatchewan to the Gulf of Mexico to honor the life of his Uncle Mitch. This is a story of love. It's a tale of the courage, devotion, and resilience of the human spirit in the dance with our mortality. It's about the process of healing from a broken heart after a loss so deep it could have held the deepest rivers.
