Recode Decode: Why thinking about death five times a day is good for you


Recode Decode with Kara Swisher recently devoted an entire episode to WeCroak!

In the episode, WeCroak co-founder Hansa Bergwall talks with Recode’s Kara Swisher about the app and why thinking about death is good for you. Also: how WeCroak got started; the “Emily Dickinson test”; why it’s called WeCroak; why Bergwall and his co-founder avoided ads and social media hooks; you’re going to die, but "do whatever you want” with that information; Steve Jobs’ speech about death; how the misguided ways we think about death affect our whole lives; Silicon Valley’s deluded attempts to cheat death; why almost every form of meditation can be “abused”; Kara’s favorite death quotes; and why WeCroak doesn’t talk about the afterlife.
