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.
Check out Caitlin's awesome new book "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" here: http://bit.ly/Ootgdacs
