Hard-hitting journalist, tech celebrity, and podcast superstar Kara Swisher of Recode Decode is known for her tough questions and provocative interview style. But when we ask her one of the most personal questions ever--What do you want for your own farewelling?--she is remarkably candid, funny, and creative.
Surprise! Karen Has Something Unique in Common with Kara Swisher
When Farewelling host Karen Bussen finds herself face-to-face in New York City with one of her heroes, tech business journalist and all-around dynamo Kara Swisher, Karen is delighted to find out that she shares something very specific in common with the legendary media maven--their Farewelling vision is strikingly similar (although Kara’s involves a bit more Marie Kondo)! After you listen to Kara’s description of the spectacular sendoff she imagines (and has budgeted for), including flaming arrows and a huge disco party, you can go back and listen to Episode 5 of Farewelling: The Podcast (at about 12:20 into the show) where Karen asks Farewelling’s funeral guru about whether her own Viking farewelling plan is legal or not.
