You know how every day someone asks "how are you?" And even if you’re totally dying inside, you just say "fine," so everyone can go about their day? This show is the opposite of that. Hosted by author and notable widow (her words) Nora McInerny, this is a funny/sad/uncomfortable podcast about talking honestly about our pain, our awkwardness, and our humanness, which is not an actual word. From American Public Media.

Amazing emotional podcast!

Nora has helped me through grief. I love this podcast and the humorous touch added to all the stories. You’re wonderful for sharing your story and helping others do the same!

The best therapy session

I found this podcast in the wake of losing my mom. I often find myself crying in my car. But somehow, Nora just makes it all feel so normal. Best therapy session I’ve ever had!
