Grief isn’t funny but everything else can be hilarious!

I feel that the negative comments on Cariad ‘interviewing’ style miss the point that this is not an interview but a conversation between comics about death and grief that both have experienced. I listen to a podcast everyday as do my morning excercise and it often makes me laugh and always gives me insights how I am dealing with my wife death in February. And in the midst of this pain you can find humour as in the funeral. It took place in a woodland cemetery and it was agreed that her coffin would be taken to her parents graves so we could leave flowers before the coffin went for cremation. We all processed with the coffin but it soon became clear that the minister had forgotten which tree to head for so quickly we are running around trying to help him as the coffin bobbed along behind us. The chaos was typical of my wife so we were all soon laughing. A final gift from her.

Stop interrupting!

Such a good podcast in terms of guests and topic and honesty and experiences. I just can barely ever finish an episode due to the host interruptions. The guests are so often sent off course due to a “I know exactly how that feels because ME” and it ruins the moment.

Helpful podcast

Great podcasts with lots of interesting guests. However, it would be nice to hear more of their own experience and what they came to discuss, rather than Cariad butting in with always her own experience. I don’t want to bash the podcast - it’s a brilliant idea and very comforting. I just think it could be improved if the guests did not have to try and steer the conversation back to what they came to discuss, largely due to interruptions and “wows” or “yeah”.
