No one disputes that it’s against the law to take another person’s life, but is it against the law to sit with someone and watch while they die by suicide. We meet an elderly woman named Fran Schindler who sneaks around the country as an “exit guide.”

This is a live interview from Motorco Music Hall in Durham, North Carolina.

Update: We spoke with Fran Schindler again for our 50th episode. Check it out here.

Music performed live by Uncle Igor.
