Talking about death doesn’t have to be somber or scary, says Caitlin Doughty, the host of the popular web series Ask a Mortician. In fact, her latest book offers a deep dive into mortality that is enlightening, educational, and very, very entertaining. Doughty will answer your questions, and discuss, with Mark Bazer, host of WTTW’s The Interview Show, how one of the great certainties–and mysteries–of life is something to embrace, not run from.
