BJ Miller, MD

Because we die, life is precious. And we are all going to die. Which means if you see death as the enemy, you’re going to lose. So how can we make the most out of our lives? And deaths?

Dr. BJ Miller is on a mission to reform death. To make it more wonderful instead of less horrible. Because death isn’t always something to overcome. And it shouldn’t always be “medicalized”.

In this episode, listen as we talk about improving palliative care options and the Zen hospice project. We also ask some tough questions, like:

  • Does medicalizing death help us or hurt us?
  • What is the total cost of death?
  • Why is this conversation so important?
  • How can you get involved?

BJ has a book, co-authored with Shoshana Berger, coming out in July:

A Beginner’s Guide to the End
