Not according to Anna Machin an evolutionary anthropologist at the Department of Experimental Psychology at Oxford University, and author of the book Why We Love: The New Science Behind Our Closest Relationships (https://amzn.to/3SzC8mp).

Listen and discover why humans need love in their lives, what purpose it serves, how it improves your health and longevity and why some people are better at love than others.

Death happens all around us. And one day we too will die. Still, it is a difficult topic for many of us to discuss. But not for Caitlin Doughty. Caitlin is a mortician, funeral home owner and best selling author. She joins me to discuss some of the fascinating things about death like; what happens if the guy next to you on an airplane dies? Why are bodies embalmed? Do hair and fingernails continue to grow after death? Can you keep your father’s skull after he dies? And so much more. Caitlin’s latest book is Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? (https://amzn.to/3SArg7C).
