It's a spooky question, but it doesn't have to be: what happens to your body when you die? Even after you depart, there's a lot of chemistry that still goes on inside you. We teamed up with mortician and author Caitlin Doughty (@thegooddeath) to demystify death and talk about what happens postmortem. Special thanks to Raychelle Burks, Ph.D. (@drrubidium) for her help with this episode.
