The last time Nikki Boyer and I spoke on The Grown-Ass Woman's guide, it was March 11, 2020. We sat across from each other at a restaurant in the LA area, with pretty much no idea that would not only be the last time we’d record in a public space, but none of us would be spending time in any restaurant for a long, long time.

In that episode, Nikki talked about her podcast, Dying for Sex, a show she hosted with her best friend Molly, after Molly was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer. When struck with that life-altering news, Molly decided to leave her unhappy marriage and embark on a series of sexual adventures to feel alive. 12 million listens and a Podcast of the Year award later, that podcast is something people are still talking about to this day. 

During the recording of Dying for Sex, Nikki met a hospital chaplain named Peggy. The two form a friendship and now host Near Death, a podcast that makes it easier — and dare I say entertaining — to talk about death in a way that not only decreases fear, but inspires conversations that we all should be having.
