When someone dies, there are many things that go into the care and disposition of a body, depending on the circumstances, the type of death, and what plans have been made. In this show, we’ll talk with a coroner and a funeral director about what goes on behind the scenes to help get a body to its final rest. Today’s guests are Mike Greenwood of Greenwood & Myers Mortuary and Emma Hall, Boulder County Coroner.

The show is co-hosted by KGNU News Director Maeve Conran and Kim Mooney, an end-of-life consultant.
