WCML 068: Wild Crazy Meaningful Death, with Caitlin Doughty

Caitlin Doughty, author of Smoke Gets In Your Eyes (And Other Stories From the Crematorium) and founder of the Order of the Good Death, talks about bringing death back into our lives.

  • How did our culture get dissociated from death?
  • How can we get reacquainted with death, and why is that important?
  • How did you find your unique calling?
  • What motivates you to keep going when things get tough?
  • Do you get tired of skulls? I assume people send you skulls and the like; does it get old?
  • How do you know a death option is legit, and what are some good legit options?
  • Feminism and the death industry
  • What do you think of Halloween as our only way to talk about death?
