    A recent editorial in the New York Times urges families to have “the talk” – that is, the end of life talk. If you were critically ill, what would you want, what are your wishes? It’s a conversation that makes us uncomfortable, and we tend to avoid it.

    In their weekly conversation, WHYY’s Maiken Scott and psychologist Dan Gottlieb discuss how families can get started.
