About this Episode

We're The Jacksway Collective.

Today's episode is a return to the original duo of Jhana and Oli as they look deep into the abyss that is death and all that comes with it. Tolstoy offers us a lens into the inner life of Ivan Illych, a Russian lawyer who can't seem to come to grips with his impending doom.

The Death of Ivan Illych is a fascinating novella that leads the guys to discuss how it is we can empathize with the grieving, what kind of relationship we should have with death (both with ourselves and our relationship to others) and, most importantly, which Russian novelist has the finest beard.

Listen to The Jacksway Collective talk philosophy or fiction every week. A podcast where 20-somethings have in-depth, academic(ish), discussions about whatever the hell they want.
