When I was nineteen years old, my mother passed away. This prompted me to explore the controversies and obscurities that come with navigating grief in today’s day and age, especially as a young adult. Based on the research from my Master’s thesis project and inspired by my own grieving experience, Sorry For Your Loss: a podcast about grief (SFYL) explores how we navigate grief in current Western culture and its media landscape.

I'm no psychologist or grief worker, but I'm a young adult who has gone through grief, and continues to grieve years after my Mother’s death.

Thought-provoking

Melissa, thank you for an incredible podcast. Having recently lost my significant other, I am experiencing my own fears of moving forward. This podcast gave me a sense of understanding and some insight into the emotions I may (or may not experience) throughout my own grieving journey.

I am optimistic that I will someday come to the realization that I have experienced post-traumatic growth. Thank you.
