Robin Simonton: Executive Director of Historic Oakwood Cemetery

Robin Simonton, executive director of Historic Oakwood Cemetery in downtown Raleigh NC, is so passionate about the history of the cemetery and of the 25,000+ people who are buried there. On the show today, she talks about that history (and shares some amazing stories!), societal norms of funerals, the Death Letter Project which commemorates Oakwood’s 150th anniversary, what exactly Green Burial is, and so much more.
