In today's monologue, I talk about how hard it is to talk about suicide and Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade.

Jun 8, 2018

It's been a rough week. The suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain are so incredibly sad. The effects ripple out. We feel the sting of these losses in a strangely personal way. They seem to function as both standalone tragedies and universal distress signals, indicators of the great suffering roiling beneath the surface in so many of us.

With this in mind, I thought I'd repost my conversation with Jennifer Michael Hecht, from December 29, 2013. Her book Stay: A History of Suicide and the Arguments Against It is essential reading.

Hang in there, you guys.
