In the Season 5 premiere of Working, Slate’s L.V. Anderson interviews James Donofrio, a funeral director at Blair Mazzarella Funeral Home. James explains the effects of always being on the clock, how he prepares for an overseas funeral, and why a funeral director needs to know about every religion. In a Slate Plus extra, Donofrio talks about a call he received to disinter 50 bodies and where he gets the urns and stones used for his services.
