'Iowa Insights' podcast: 'Until Cryonics Do Us Part'

Cryonics can have a chilling effect on a relationship -– just imagine the tension if one person wants to be frozen after death and the other thinks it’s a wacky idea.
This month's edition of the "Iowa Insights" podcast focuses on the topic, featuring a New York Times Magazine piece written by Kerry Howley, a graduate student in the University of Iowa Nonfiction Writing Program. Howley’s essay, "Until Cryonics Do Us Part," was published in July.
"Iowa Insights" is a monthly audio magazine featuring interviews with some of the world's leading thinkers, researchers and teachers. The podcast is a collaborative project of the UI Office of University Relations and the Center for Media Production. This episode was produced by Nicole Riehl and Nick Tomlonovic.
