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.

Terrible, Thanks For Asking American Public Media

    Addiction, Language and Education

    How do we talk about addiction in more productive ways? How do we hold empathy and boundaries together? What does it mean to recover? I have no idea, so Dr. Nzinga Harrison is here to educate, comfort and reassure all of us.
