Today's conversation with Eric Segall is really deep, thought provoking and, important  Eric of course is a close friend and a listener favorite for years. He is an Author, Commentator and Podcast host. Eric and I talked about the recent loss of his beloved father at 93 and how hard the end was for everyone.
 
I think this conversation gives us all a lot to think about in regarding how we might change laws to better go out on our own terms.
 
Read Eric's piece about it in Dorf on Law : Of Dad, Death, and Dying With Dignity (Or the Lack Thereof)and follow, listen and read Eric too!
