To The Best Of Our Knowledge: Death (A Five-Part Series): Exit Plan

We will present a rich, cross-cultural perspective on death and dying, speaking with a wide range of guests - from medical professionals and morticians to historians, anthropologists, religious thinkers and writers. Our series will also feature highly-produced personal segments, including one story that follows a terminally-ill man over the course of a year - from the months leading up to his death, to his “green” burial.

Sophisticated new medical technologies have allowed people to live longer, but this has come at a cost. Skyrocketing medical expenses have sparked a vigorous debate among doctors, ethicists and families struggling with end-of-life decisions. What is sensible end-of-life care? What is a “good death”?
