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?
Host: Michael Krasny
- David Arnold, crematory grounds manager at Santa Rosa Memorial Park, where he has worked since 1994
- Jerrigrace Lyons, executive director of Final Passages, a nonprofit that focuses on at-home funerals and green burials; she has assisted with at-home burials for 17 years
- Lucas Freshman, graduate student teaching a human anatomy class with cadavers at San Francisco State University
