E35: Confessions of a Funeral Director with Caleb Wilde


Caleb Wilde is not your average undertaker. In fact, he's a sixth-generation funeral director who uses his innate introversion, empathy, and fascination with theology to "be the heart when hearts are broken." He relays his observations in his new book, Confessions of a Funeral Director. We're talking about how capitalism makes us "death amateurs," how grief is a form of worship, and how Caleb feels about bringing his son to work. Also on today's show, I'm talking about crafting an escape plan for your grief.
