Today on Katie Recommends, I want to talk to you about Caitlin Doughty.
Caitlin runs a YouTube channel called Ask a Mortician.
Now you might think I’m recommending this becuase, after all we are a horror appreceation blog, and oooOOooo dead bodies, that’s got to be horror. But that’s not why I’m recommending her, Caitlin works hard to demystify and remove the ‘ick’ and the ‘horror’ from death, and she does this well, in part due to her humor and delivery.
I am an avid horror fan but I do also think it’s important that we reconnect with certain things that have been labelled as ‘horrifying’ and realise just what’s involved.
That and it is morbidly fascinating.
Sadly Caitlin does not have a channel trailer for me to share with you, so I’m going to try and sum up her channel and share with you one of my favourite videos. She does a great deal of discussion about the funeral industry, demystifying it, but she also does other series like her iconic corpse series, fave of mine linked below.
