It’s our Halloween show, and we talk to the most fun mortician on the planet, Caitlin Doughty. You may know her from her popular webcast “Ask a Mortician,” hosted on her website “Order of the Good Death.” We talk about morbid kids (it gets better), “secondary flaccidity,” the greatest death movie ever, and her new book, “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, and Other Lessons from the Crematory.”

We talk to Peter McGraw, author of The Humor Code; Pulitzer Prize winning animator Mark Fiore and Paul Paz y Mino of Amazon Watch; and activist John Sellers of Agit-Pop Communications.
