Description

You know how every day someone asks 'how are you?' And even if you’re totally dying inside, you just say 'fine,' so everyone can go about their day? This show is the opposite of that. Hosted by author and notable widow (her words) Nora McInerny, this is a funny/sad/uncomfortable podcast about talking honestly about our pain, our awkwardness, and our humanness, which is not an actual word. From American Public Media.

My heart breaks for her. I hope somehow, some way, some day, she (and all touched) are healed. As much as they can be at least.

America and it's guns.. The rest of the world watches in shock but nobody is surprised any more. on healthcare, abortion rights you have a country abused by corrupt politicians and a population divided by rhetoric.

A while ago one of my best friends attempted suicide. I was able to call them on the phone and be there when they changed their mind and decided to call a hospital. I know if I wasn't able to change their mind I would like awake at night and agonize over what I might do differently; how I might save their life. I still think about it every year on the anniversary of their attempt. I can't imagine how it must feel to be unable to prevent someone's suicide attempt.

This is my all time favorite podcast. Nora keeps it so real and is real. I just purchased her book on Audible and listened to it straight through. 5 stars!

This podcast has me weeping in so many episodes. I'm 8 eps in but have downloaded the lot now. I don't know why, but hearing others' tragedies helps me to cope with mine. This is beautiful.

The personalization of the first few moments are truly present....plus l am learning that the daughters are closer to their FATHER now that HE is physically dead ......the missing feeling is there plus that loneliness

My husband died in 2009 when our daughter was 3. I listened to the first episode and cried and laughed and nodded in agreement and shouted "Yes! That! So much that!" My kiddo is 12 now. and doing ok, despite the dead dad and the fucked up mom.
