I recently had the privilege to be a guest on Jane Asher’s podcast, The Next Room. Those of you from San Diego will undoubtedly recognize her voice. For several years Jane was a radio personality on KFMB and KIFM, among others. Her passion is now focused on helping others with loss, grief and healing. Here’s a blurb about her show, and I encourage you to check out some of her other amazing interviews.

Demystifying death daily, she interviews professionals and practitioners from diverse backgrounds about death, dying, grief, beliefs and cultural traditions surrounding the journey we all must ultimately make. The show airs across 11 platforms and has connected her with extraordinary people throughout this community. The Next Room has recently become the official podcast of the Beautiful Dying Expo.

Here is a link to my conversation with Jane.  It’s just 30 minutes.  I enjoyed every second of it.  Jane is a wonderful, deep soul and our beliefs and experiences regarding the interconnectedness between this earthly plane and our loved ones just over there in The Next Room could not be more aligned. I talk about our son, Jimmy, and the letter I received from my father 40 years after he tried to mail it to me. The letter that changed everything!!


Casey Talks With Jane Asher on The Next Room

Jane is also an incredible writer, and she will soon be coming out with her first book, THE NEXT ROOM.  I was given the honor of previewing her book and please trust me: This book is a must read.  I felt like I was in the middle of a conversation with God.  I’ll let you know when it becomes available.
