    Episode 3: What's Your Legacy?

    Matt and Pete attend their colleague’s grandmother’s funeral and are blown away by the legacy she left. It gets them thinking about their own legacies and what they’ll be known for when they’re gone (Matt for being funny, Pete for his shoes?), and they challenge listeners to ask loved ones what they’d write on their tombstones. #tombstonechallenge

    Pete Shrock has been immersed in active crisis support for over 15 years. He trained grief experts responding to 9/11 and the shootings at Sandy Hook and Virginia Tech.
