Earlier this week, Carson came upon an article in LA Weekly about a LACMA art project called the Hereafter Institute.

Why did the topic catch his eye? Well, the exhibit was designed to explore how you can live on through social media after you die.

It’s a haunting concept. Today’s technology is advanced enough where you could create a 3-D avatar of yourself that sends pre-recorded VR messages to your loved ones.

After giving organizers access to their Facebook accounts, participants were presented with three different options during their consultation: continuation, deletion, and memorialization.

Journalist Catherine Wagley attended the event last month and described the experience to Carson and Producer Angie.

“I think the thing that was most disturbing was just the idea that you could be remembered by those things,” Wagley said. “Like, I don’t tweet thinking, ‘Oh, this is how I want to be remembered.'”

Take a listen to the rest of their conversation below:
