Death Talk Goes Viral

Produced by Chris Cuffe

Despite the makeover from the popular HBO series Six Feet Under, morticians still get stamped with the image of a tall, spindly old man in a threadbare suit, with matching tap, or, barring that, just a little bit creepy. Caitlin Doughty is doing her best to update that image, and to lift the lid on a profession that will, ultimately, touch us all. She hosts the "Ask a Mortician" series of videos on YouTube, and she joins us to answer just a few of our pressing questions.
