Welcome to “One More Thing Before You Go, a Unique Conversation about Life!” © 2010-2019

Have you ever truly desired for an engaging and honest conversation about the things that we methodically push down deep inside ourselves?

Have you secretly yearned for the type of discussions typically only whispered about: Death, Sex, Loss, Disease like: Dementia, Cancer, Rheumatoid, PTSD, Disability, Depression as well as Relationships, and life’s OTHER little irritations?

We all think it, we all whisper about it, now we all need to talk about it …out loud …. Welcome to One More Thing Before You Go, a unique conversation about life! Where you get to say that “one more thing” before somebody walks out the door or leaves and never comes back!

Join the conversation with me, your host, me  Michael Herst … Because just like you I’ve experienced everything we’re going to talk about from a personal, and a professional level, and my education has allowed me more insight into the subject matter. I am a retired Police Sgt., a father, son, husband, and a brother who understands these topics from a deeper perspective (more about me down below).

And together we will embark on a weekly journey of sharing, learning, through a mix of solo programs, as well as in-depth interviews with people just like you and me, and some distinct and weathered professionals, who will share their knowledge, insight, and guidance such as Psychologist, Yogi’s, Naturopathic Doctors, conventional Doctors, Dieticians, Police Officers, Firefighters, EMT’s Nurses, Military Peronnel, and caretakers….    

WE will explore life through alternative medicine, mental health and well-being, like meditation, yoga, diet in disease management and healing, and the importance of saying “One More Thing Before You Go,”  As well as the stigma surrounding the action of never being able to say what you wanted or needed to say… before you lost someone suddenly or over time.

I am your host on this journey of enlightenment where people like you and me will share our innermost thoughts about life and loss, and if you’re lucky it will free your soul…. just a little…. and who knows, you may learn a thing or two along the way …. so don’t be shy…. come on in and Join the conversation!

This Could Be You

I am striving to have a special guest each week, whether it is an expert, an educator, you or somebody like you. It may just be you and I that share the time, but in either case if there is to be a Guest on the program, this text will be replaced with a short bio so you know who you are listening to.

About One More Thing Before You Go

 “One More Thing Before You Go”℗ © 2010-2019 started as a Documentary Film: Capstone Project, during my Master’s Program at Arizona State University, in 2010. It was completed and showcased in 2011 at ASU and was developed and produced to show the importance of going through the right methodology, that life can, and will move forward in a positive way after losing someone. In this film we demonstrated the healing aspect of saying “one more thing,” through the use of creative arts therapies.

It has since evolved in a Blog and Podcast; “One More Thing Before You Go” © 2019 both developed Jan 1, 2019 and launched the blog June 1, 2019 announcing the program via a podcast , that was to be launched in July (I ran into some technical issues, but here I am. The short Documentary film currently resides on my hard drive and in the YouTube universe…. So let’s talk!
