    Imogen’s Untold Story: Unravelling a Web of Lies

    Imogen’s Untold Story: Unravelling a Web of Lies

    We’re back with a brand new season of Good Mourning, and in this first episode, Im delves into the untold parts of her story following her mother’s suicide in February 2020.
    In the depths of her grief, Im unearthed a devastating revelation – the person her mother had married was not at all who she said she was. 
    In the following months, Im went on to investigate who this woman was, and what she uncovered was unbelievable. 
    She shared her story with Journalist Emily Baker late last year on ABC’s 7:30 Report. You can find the story here.
    TW: During this episode, we discuss suicide, Coercive Control, and emotional and psychological abuse, and some listeners may find it triggering. We’ve listed several support resources below.

    A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife with Eben Alexander

    A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife with Eben Alexander

    Harvard Neurosurgeon Eben Alexander joins us to share his incredible near-death experience and what it taught him about life. 
    Eben is the author of several incredible books, including the bestselling Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife, which he joins us to talk about. In 2008, he was put into a medically induced coma after falling gravely ill with acute bacterial meningoencephalitis, which has a 90% mortality rate. What happened from there is against all odds. His neocortex was so damaged he should not have been dreaming or having any type of dream-like experience, yet he had an NDE. 
    The experience profoundly altered his view of life and its meaning, and he shares his incredible story and many valuable lessons to inspire us all.

Lifesavers!!

I asked google what’s the best podcast to help with grief, and it chose you!! I was in hospital recovering from knee replacement surgery and the police came at 2.00 am to tell me my son had been found dead. I have no words for the great black ocean of pain I’ve been treading water in, and now you have thrown me a life raft. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart.🙏

Paula Donnelly ,
