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.

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.

The best!

My favourite! Nora feels like a friend. I laugh out loud and weep often. The is great comfort in knowing I’m not alone. Thank you Nora et al, your stories and your efforts are truly worth the listen.
