This week, I am sharing a dialogue I recently had with my new friend Nash Flynn. Nash is a comedian, historian, and host of the podcast Death and Friends. In our dialogue, we talk about death. A lot. Like, a whole helluva lot. So keep that in mind as you wade into this discussion. We chat about the death of non-human animals, climate change, the inevitable heat-death of the universe…but the majority of the dialogue focuses on Nash’s area of expertise: the deathways of so-called New England in the fifteenth century. We talk a lot about settler colonialism, the way history is whitewashed and sanitized, and get into the details of death in all their nitty, gritty, gory glory.
