Youtube Spotlight: Ask a Mortician

Ask a Mortician is a web series by funeral director and author Caitlin Doughty where she discusses everything morbid, from intellectually explorative videos about what happened to Titanic's Dead to answering viewer's questions about what is the worst way to die to giving frank advice about how we should approach talking to our loved ones about death. Basically, everything you could ever want to know about death, she's got you covered.

Caitlin Doughty is down to earth, slightly macabre, and very funny, and watching her videos is a delight. She has a very relaxed approach to talking about death and is frank in her mission that we should reclaim our relationship with death and not ignore it. Her view is that the contemporary situation in which hospitals and funeral homes handle most of the death process is actually not very good for us.

My favorite video? Death and Feminism
