Radio Curious continues it's series about the funeral industry in a conversation with funeral director and mortician, George Leinen, owner of Empire Mortuary in Ukiah, California.
Barry Vogel, Attorney and Counselor is the Host and Producer of Radio Curious. Christina Aanestad is the Assistant Producer.
Continuing our series on the funeral industry in the United States we visit with the owner of a mortuary in a rural northern California town. As professionals describe their work and philosophy, George Leinen, owner of Empire Mortuary in Ukiah, California since 2000, joins us in this edition of Radio Curious to share his thoughts and experiences. We discuss funeral industry trade associations, business practices in some sectors of the industry, and how our guest's philosophy evolved. In this program, recorded in the studios of Radio Curious on September 21, 2013 we began our visit when I asked George Leinen to describe embalming, what it is, and why it's done.
The book George Leinen recommends is "The American Way of Death," by Jessica Mitford.
