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.

Thank you TTFA!

This podcast has meant the world to me in my grief and helped to make me feel less alone. Thank you for being vulnerable, funny and compassionate Nora!

Love

I love podcasts that are more based on story telling and real lives or events so I gave TTFA a try. Its so much more than simply stories, although it is just a pod cast it has really changed my perspective on some attributes of my own trauma. It provides a great reminder to cherish loved ones, live life and that it is OK to be not OK.
Nora is also fantastic and such a perfectly funny (even when the joke is about dying lol) and compassionate host.

Music

I love the storytelling and the content. The music placed over the speaking and going along with the story is very distracting. Maybe make it quieter or choose less annoying music. The podcast doesn’t even need the music part, stories and host is great.
