In All Honesty is a non-fiction theatrical podcast that allows people from different walks of life to share experiences which society doesn’t always find easy to discuss. Brought to life by brand new creative collective THE TWELVE, these are stories that are not heard every day. This podcast breaks down stigmas, allowing its storytellers to have a frank and honest voice about social barriers, relationships, and mental and physical health. It answers questions we are too afraid to ask and ‘in all honesty’, it’s time we changed that.

    We’re also lucky enough to have a superhero in our family. 

    She doesn’t wear a cape. She doesn’t have a fancy costume. 

    But she does have more strength than Superman.

    1.4 | Meg - The Goodbye

    There’s a balance to how it all works out. We’re not prepared for this shit ever…
    when it comes. I guess that’s what makes us human.
     
    But I just remember… they say a piece of you goes when someone goes in your life
    that means a lot to you. Now, I never knew my daughter. I knew her for two days.
    And for those two days she was deceased. But… we formed a bond. Like, it was real
    and I know she’s looking after us. I know she is. And maybe that’s just what gets me
    by.

    1.3 | Meg - The Birth

    And I remember just holding… this… tiny little girl in my hands. Her lips were fully,
    like, fully formed… they looked exactly like… Olly’s lips. And she had big feet, I
    remember she had - well y’know, big feet for her body - um… and I looked up and
    I… I was very emotional. I was… I was weeping - quite - profusely.
    And I lay with my daughter. And I… there was no way I was going home. There was
    no way I was leaving.

Breath taking

As a mum of two this podcast connected to me in so many ways. To go on such a personal and honest recount of such a life experience was more than words. A stunning podcast

becchipp ,

Beautiful

Oh my goodness I absolutely adored this podcast. I was only meant to listen to one or two and had to binge the whole lot. I’ve just been through the ringer but in a good way. It does remind you to stop and really appreciate the beauty in this world and especially our children and family.
Thanks for sharing your story of Meg and your beautiful family.

qtangles ,

Original & Beautiful

An incredible listening experience. Moving, honest, and the mix of music and storytelling is masterful. Thank you for the openness and beauty that you created.
