We all face death, but technology can help it feel a little less lonely.

On today's show we are joined by Dan Garrett, CEO of Farewill. Technology for most of us is never not in the palm of our hand in the way of social media, contacting friends and working, but these uses seem menial when it can be applied to such bigger uses. The way we have been dealing with death for decades has been formal, complicated and expensive. Instead of feeling supported, people often feel lost. Farewill is changing the way the world deals with death: to make the experience warmer, brighter and friendlier, with the help of technology.
