In My Experience: Working With the DeadDownload audio (MP3)
As part of our "In My Experience" series, we talk with people who work with the dead for a living. A crematorium director, a woman who specializes in at-home funerals and a student who dissects cadavers all join us to share their stories. How has working with the dead changed their own views on life?
