Making his radio debut for Bare Cremation, co-founder and ‘Funeral Futurist’ Cale Donovan chats to the voice of TV and radio John Deeks on his Your Life Choices podcast called Mind Your Own Retirement.

Cale and Deeksy talk about how COVID-19 has taught us the value in separating the cremation from the memorial when someone passes. Cale also explains why no-one should equate the cost of a funeral with how much a person is loved.

In light of the social distancing restrictions, people are learning they can actually separate the cremation from the memorial when a loved one passes, Cale says.

He tells Deeksy how people have now realised they can have a direct cremation now while taking the time to think about what’s fitting and unique for that person, to plan a personalised celebration of their life at a later date.

Listen to the interview here – Cale’s chat begins at the 11:34 mark.

Also on the show is some great advice from Choice on managing credit card debt and some fashion tips for over 50s.
