Americans are not so great at talking about death

Last week on the show, we asked for your stories about willsWhat experiences have you had with wills? Do you have a will? Why, or why not? What questions do you have about wills?

One thing we realized while working on this story, we’re not so great at opening up about death with our loved ones, or even admitting it to ourselves. Mortician and death theorist Caitlin Doughty discuss where our denial and fear of death may come from, and how that compares to cultures around the world. 

Plus, CBS Business analyst Jill Schlesinger joins the show again to answer more of your questions about wills, estates and trusts.

You can read Jill Schlesinger’s checklist on estate planning here, or click play above to hear more from our interview. Have a question of your own? Get in touch on our Facebook page, on Twitter @MarketplaceWKND, or call us at 1-800-648-5114.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.

Make a good investment!
