Host Gail Rubin, CT, brings a light touch to a serious subject. Like her award-winning book of the same name, the TV interviews cover a lot of information most folks don’t know about until faced with a death in the family. By planning ahead and having a conversation families can:

  • reduce stress at a time of grief
  • minimize family conflict
  • save money and
  • create a meaningful, memorable good goodbye.

Each episode provides valuable insights into funeral planning issues. From pre-need planning to grief counseling, financial issues to the latest trends in death care, these interviews offer eye-opening insights into the party no one wants to plan.

Host and producer Gail Rubin, CT, The Doyenne of Death®, is a death educator (also known as a thanatologist), an author, speaker and Certified Funeral Celebrant. She is one of the pioneers who brought the Death Cafe movement to the United States.
