This image is called "hopscotch to oblivion," a title that pokes fun at dying.

Death is a heavy topic, but sometimes it's still okay to joke about it. In this episode of the RadioActive podcast, Zeytun Ahmed and Patrick Liu explore when it's appropriate to make jokes about death and how morbid humor can actually be valuable.

 

 

This podcast was created with production support from Surya Hendry and edited by Lila Kitaeff. The RadioActive theme song is by Patrick Liu and Abay Estifanos. Excerpts from the film "The Last Laugh" were provided by Ferne Pearlstein.
