How many times at BAIPA meetings have we been encouraged to get ourselves on podcasts?
Lo and behold, I am thrilled to share this engaging conversation, with hospice doctor Karen Wyatt, about addressing end-of-life challenges through fiction. She read my novel, When I Killed My Father: An Assisted Suicide Family Thriller, enjoyed and appreciated it, and asked me questions no one asked before. As well as some of the usual, like do I support assisted suicide/euthanasia?
If you enjoy this conversation half as much as I did, that’s still a lot of enjoyment. It’s long enough I don’t even expect anyone, even my wife or son, to watch the whole thing, but please take a peek. If you don’t want to try pot luck, jump to 3:23 or 35:07.
I sold seven books on the day after the interview was posted. The most in months. This is before I promoted it to my networks, which I’m just getting to now.
It’s also available as a podcast. If you search your favorite podcast app for “End of Life University Barry” it will show up.
To make this happen, I reached out via email to as many end-of-life podcasters as I could find — there aren’t that many — and didn’t hear back from any. Until I followed up with a second email. That’s a lesson for me to remember. Follow up.
I also had a great conversation, and a shorter one, on Let’s Talk Death with Fran Solomon and Andy McNiel.
