You might think they’d be morbid, and there is a campy-ghoulish element to them, but the tales Caitlyn Doughty tells are generally quite compelling, and scientific to boot.
Here, she debunks the myths around the Columbine mass shooting [13:41]:

As you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here. We care!
IAN is a great group to join, and a good place to learn to write diaries. Drop one of us a PM to be added to the Itzl Alert Network anytime! We all share the publishing duties, and we welcome everyone who reads IAN to write diaries for the group! Every member is an editor, so anyone can take a turn when they have something to say, photos and music to share, a cause to promote or news!
From her website:
Caitlin Doughty is a mortician, advocate, and bête noire of the traditional funeral industry. In 2011 she founded the funeral reform collective The Order of the Good Death, which has spawned the death positive movement. Her educational webseries "Ask a Mortician" has been viewed almost 200 million times and all three of her books Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, From Here to Eternity, and Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? were New York Times bestsellers. She owns a funeral home, Clarity Funerals, in Los Angeles.
“Cadaver Crimes: Cantrell Funeral Home” [10:17] is a doozy. If you’re easily triggered, don’t watch this one. But it’s the true story of an unethical funeral director.
What the remains at Waco proved (hint: it was not the FBI’s finest hour) [30:39]:
And I’m sorry, but this mystery is just too much fun: How did the corpse get into the drag queen’s closet? [9:49]
