Sensitive and honest

Caraid does such a brilliant job. She has a warm, empathic nature that shines through in every episode. It’s so important that we talk about death more openly and this podcast is a solid step in that direction.

Thankyou Cariad

Thankyou Cariad, the team and guests for making this podcast. I’ve experienced deaths without any skills or knowledge and now I feel as if I can help others and myself deal with grief. I find myself laughing learning and Remembering my loved ones and feel really privileged to have all the past episodes to listen to and will continue to listen in the future.

So helpful so grateful

I recently tragically lost my 22 year old daughter. I found myself looking for help for my grief. I absolutely love this podcast and it’s surprisingly helpful for me so thank you Cariad so so much
