An amazing interview with ColdChef about what life is like running a funeral home and what the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina taught him about MetaFilter. Also, a recap of the last two weeks, recorded on May 25, 2007. It runs long at 1 hour, 9 minutes total (about 35minutes with ColdChef, but totally worth it).
