Chaz Ebert on "Death, Sex & Money" Podcast: Roger's Still With Me

Chaz Ebert gave a beautiful and uncommonly candid interview to Anna Sale, host of the "Death, Sex & Money" podcast on WNYC.org. She opened up about how her late husband, Roger Ebert, is still present with her and provides her with great comfort. Chaz also reflected on the years after Roger lost the ability to speak, a period of time that ended up being unforgettably documented in Steve James' acclaimed documentary, "Life Itself," based on Roger's 2011 memoir of the same name. Though Roger underwent a traumatic physical transformation, his relationship with Chaz remained as strong as ever. “We were so in tune with each other that we actually could speak to each other without words or without even being in the same room,” Chaz told Sale.
