Author and mortician Caitlin Doughty joins us this week to discuss her new book ‘Smoke Gets in Your Eyes‘ and the gruesome details behind the scenes of her profession.

In between tales of mouldy corpses and flaming skulls, Caitlin exposes our modern culture’s disconnection from the reality of death and decay, explores how non-western cultures handle death, and presents possibilities on alternative approaches to funerals.

Our Plus+ extension features battles in the astral realms, and lives and legends of warrior women from across the ancient world.
