Good in a Hospital with Marty DeRosa and Sarah Shockey

All I have to do is wind up Marty and Sarah with my death questions, then sit back and ride the wave as they spin podcast gold. They're quick, thoughtful, generous, and silly as they talk about the recent death of a close friend, Marty's memory of first meeting Sarah, a suicide at their old apartment building, and getting so fed up with your own patterns that you make permanent changes for the better. Consider it like an episode of their podcast, except instead of wrestling it's Marty & Sarah Love Talking About Death. Plus, Sarah improvises intro jingles for every segment!

You get a full half hour of bonus material for the cost of a coffee or a meal at patreon.com/davemaher, including their funeral plans and creative/life lessons Sarah learned from our improv days. Subscribers get my full convos with guests, the companion podcast This Is Your Aftershow, and shoutouts in future episodes.

Content warning: suicide, depression, calliope music, hospital stuff, death, Muppets, hella comas, past lives, codependency, the consciousness of windows, musical improv.
