Welcome to Life’s Milestones – the fortnightly podcast about birth and naming ceremonies, relationship and marriage, and death and funerals, hosted by Mark Adams, a Humanist Celebrant.
Mark’s guest on this episode is Coop (Mark Cooper): a rock events manager, rock musician and host of the Spoken Metal Podcast.
In the longest and most chaotic episode of the podcast yet, Coop shares stories about his life’s milestones including the epic inter-school fights of his childhood, the reasons behind choosing The Final Countdown by Europe for his wife to walk down the aisle, and how he learned a lot from being a resident of the cardiology unit of his local hospital due to his tilted heart in his early 30s and how it changed his attitude towards death. Mark and Coop also go into deep detail about the joy of being an uncle, the taboo about talking about death, and the malicious lie regularly told by priests that there are no atheists in foxholes.
