Ep 47: Life, Death, Love, Mother’s Day and Delegates, with Bin Lee

Posted on Posted in episodes

This episode we are joined by writer, filmmaker and author Bin Lee, to share a different perspective on Mother’s day. Andy and Bin connect and compare experiences with losing a parent at a young age and Bin shares the heart-wrenching story of his families journey with his mother’s breast cancer. We talk about grief, family and the difficult choices we have to navigate. We talk about the importance of therapy and the universal state of denial that people are in regarding death. Bin is an amazing person and I’m so glad we got to hear about his wonderful and supportive mother who helped make his dreams come true. He was open and honest and we are so appreciative of his willingness to share. Bin offers some advice and recommends the movie “A Monster Calls” for a great perspective on grief and loss and we talk about the complex emotions surrounding taking care of an ailing parent. So definitely check that movie out!

Bin also talks about his debut Comic Book “Delegates” now available on Comixology. It looks and sounds incredible! You can purchase it here: https://www.comixology.com/Delegates/comics-series/111231
