IN a special bonus podcast, Emily talks to Grief Encounters hosts Sasha and Venetia about “starting again” after a series of  painful losses, all accounted beautifully in her new memoir Everybody Died, So I Got a Dog. The books jarring title is completely indicative to the tone of the conversation, as Emily refuses to speak gently about the painful realities of grief.  Now, she is the only survivor of her immediate family and in her interview with Sasha and Venetia, she speaks in great detail of how this strange reality came to be. The Deans are a genuinely extraordinary family. Her Dad was a famous TV personality and her mother an actress. Her relationship with both of them throughout the years was turbulent at times. “It was a peripatetic, slightly unstable childhood. Lot’s of bohemian artists, who were great fun to be around, but if you wan’t fish fingers on the table at 5pm, they’re not your people.” In contrast to this, Emily’s relationship with her sister Rachael meant more than anything in the world to her “I called my sister my lighthouse, she was home.”Emily’s whole world turned completely on its head in December 2011. Rachael suddenly became very ill, and passed away less than a month later from an aggressive form of cancer. In 2014, her mother was diagnosed with MND, passing away a year later, shortly followed by the death of her father a few months after. Within three short years she was completely on her own. “There’s something about the family you have grown up, in whatever form that takes, that defines you. It is who you are. “ I had moments where I would go to ring my sister, with something funny, or if I had passed somewhere. And  then you’d get this sinking feeling of I’ve got no one to tell, no one understands this”Emily is a fascinating character, and an incredibly smart and intelligent woman who’s absolute love for her sister is still incredibly evident eight years on from her loss. Her conversation sparked many tears, huge moments of laughter, and that was within the first 10 minutes alone. If you're looking for a safe haven to express how you feel, Share articles, photos ,memories and more,Join the Grief Encounters Facebook Group,A place for support, compassion and empathy for those grievinghttps://www.facebook.com/groups/GriefEncounters/Music by: NctrnmIf you want to hear more Grief Encounters, please search on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or your favourite podcast app. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

Episode 47. What is the point in interviewing someone who opens with comments about disliking dogs? I didn’t bother to carry on listening. We’ve moved on from at least liking dogs but having to borrow one, to disliking them. Defeats the object of the podcast if you ask me. 🤷‍♀️ I’ll give this one a miss and wait for the next one.

Can you not find any celebs with their own dogs now? It seems to be mainly yours or borrowed doggles.

I really like this podcast, I like the honesty of it. It has made me change the way I think about some of the guests, sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. Oh and I don't even like dogs 😁

I love everything Emily does (though sometimes find myself getting a bit grumpy at Mr Skinner for constantly interrupting her on Absolute - plug for both your shows, there;)) She feels like a friend :-) Thank you for these podcasts combining cheer, chatter and (canine) chums :-) Looking forward to more!

As a dog owner of the delectable Bertie and a listener to Frank, Emily and Alun on the radio, I love to listen to this. Emily seems to like all the people I like, and the walks and talks feel like I'm walking along side them with my 4 month old puppy leaping all over their dogs. Thank you for the entertainment.
