    PRESENTS — Judith Lucy - Overwhelmed and Dying

    PRESENTS — Judith Lucy - Overwhelmed and Dying

    Comedian Judith Lucy is totally overwhelmed by the state of the world and her own life. The family she grew up in is dead, she's a lot closer to dying than she wants to be and now after a particularly bad break-up, she's single again.

    So, great news Australia! Judith Lucy is going to solve her problems, and yours, over the course of a mere eight episodes, simply by chatting to some experts and having some vaguely humiliating experiences so you don't have to.

    You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll be absolutely thrilled that you are not Judith Lucy. Episode 1 out on March 6th.

Brilliant, beautiful, hilarious, real

So beautiful, so funny, so heartbreakingly real, sad and incredibly smart. This podcast series brought me such joy - the joy of laughter & the joy of identification with the human condition (the sad stuff & the beauty!) ❤️

Thank you!!!!
