Death Cafe is a global social franchise that wants to help people talk about death. At a Death Cafe, participants can talk about taboo topics in a lightly moderated open forum. Minnesota has a couple of these volunteer-run discussion groups. You show up, have a snack, take a seat, and chat about any topic that has to do with death.
KFAI’s Matthew Schneeman recently attended a Death Cafe in northeast Minneapolis to see how people take on this intimidating topic.
