Grief happens in stages. On the first episode of AudioFiles this season, we tease out that process with loss-driven stories, from climate change-based despair, to one woman’s experience losing everything to a local psychic, to a story of a town rising from cycles of economic devastation. We speak to author Joseph Rauch about how the digital world has shaped death, and musician Nick Klein joins us in live the studio for a set of nod-inducing music.
