We've got a fantastic line-up of consumer advocates, legislators, and young, innovative people in the funeral and burial business focused on bringing consumers real choice while maintaining affordability.
Caitlin Doughty is easily the funniest funeral director in the country. If you haven't seen her informative-while-totally-hysterical "Ask a Mortician" Youtube series, run, don't walk. It's the only video series to combine death, dying, and drag queens---what more could you ask for?
Caitlin has been featured on NPR, in the Huffington Post, and more. You'll be seeing much more of her when her forthcoming book, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, is published by W.W. Norton and company later in 2014. Join her for an irreverent breath of fresh air about the foibles of the funeral industry!
