Fainting Couch Feminists Episode Sixty-Four: Let’s Talk About DEATH feat. Elee Kraljii Gardiner

It’s terrifying and abstract and it’s coming for us all! That’s right: we’re talking DEATH, a subject Elle Kraljii Gardiner knows intimately, having been through multiple near death experiences herself. Most significantly, Elee had a mini-stroke in 2012, an event that profoundly impacted her life in every way imaginable—psychologically, physically, you name it. Now, Elee is releasing an anthology called “Against Death: 35 Essays on Living,” where multiple writers reflect on what it means to be close to death. In this episode, Mica and Elee also chat about The Anthropocene (a new word Mica learned), what it means to be “in tune” with your body, and why even us cynical Sallies aren’t ready to dismiss the power of positive thinking.
