Episode 278: Mary Darling

This Canadian producer, celebrated for Little Mosque on the Prairie, wanted to do a show about death, too often “depicted as this morbid sad thing. We wanted to do a comedy about death.” The Hollywood (Toronto?) suits rejected her. A merry chat about mortality at the New York Baha’i Center.  Music from Gloria Thomas Gassaway and the Ebony Hillbillies.

Person: Pearl, a baby she lost
Place: heaven, or the like
Thing: a ship-shaped pendulum
Randy’s Place: Hume’s deathbed
