Lawyer. Filmmaker. Funeral home owner.
Chris Meyer is many things. Boring, is not one of them.
His new book "Life in 20 Lessons: What a Funeral Guy Discovered about Life from Death" is like "This is my Life" meets "Tuesdays with Morrie." Meyer spent 14 years in the funeral business assisting grieving families and in one case, the soon to be departed, in planning funerals. It was a life chapter he never intended to write but he feels grateful for given the impact the career detour had on him personally.
On this Dying to Ask, how a guy working as a Hollywood screenwriter ended up running a funeral home, what he's learned about life from being around death for 14 years, and what he learned about failure that time he told Mel Gibson he hated his script. Get ready for some epic stories and a lot of laughing about a topic that's usually not very funny.
