Near-Death Experiences: The Aftermath
Show Notes

Dr. Bruce Greyson is Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the UVA School of Medicine. He served on the medical school faculty at the Universities of Michigan, Connecticut, and Virginia. He was a co-founder and President of the International Association for Near-Death Studies, and Editor of the Journal of Near-Death Studies. Most recently, he penned AFTER based on nearly five decades of research about near-death experiences (NDEs).

In this week's episode, we look at NDEs through the lens of Dr. Greyson's research - how culture is related to each experience, skeptics' criticisms (lack of oxygen, drugs, electrical activity in the brain, DMT release at the moment of death, mental illness, etc.), how NDEs affect people's lives after their encounter, and what NDEs can teach us about living.
