Welcome back! In this episode of Applied Curiosity Lab Radio we chomp on a Curiosity Bite that explores why we care about how we’re remembered when we’re dead.

Do you care about your legacy?

How do you want people to remember you? For how long?

Discuss, debate, and dissect with us!

The lens is – and always will be – curiosity. Each week, fun informal conversations center around one delectable Curiosity Bite designed to give your brain the time and ideas to think about thinking, to flex your curiosity muscle… and maybe even… revolutionize the way you think.

This week’s Curiosity Bite:


When will you care about how you’re remembered when you’re dead?


In this episode…Curious Questions asked and answered:

Is it a privilege to watch someone die?

Are you afraid to die?

If he hadn’t died young, would James Dean be famous?

What does it mean to be dead?

Do we care more about our legacy the closer we get to death?

Would a guided psilocybin experience make one care more or less about how they’re remembered when we’re dead?
