A huge comfort

This is a brilliant podcast from the lovely Cariad - a simple idea for a really complex thing that we humans often refuse to face up to. The episodes I listened to recently were incredibly moving: first, with Adam Buxton talking about losing his mother suddenly during lockdown, and then with Monty Don taking about both losing his dog, Nigel, and remembering the death of his father. Both described something so honestly felt, so eloquently, and it helped me feel so much less alone.

Glad I found this.

Thank you. Much needed this year x

Just wanted to say that Cariad's chat with Adam really resonated with me in the wake of my own dear mum's unexpected death, in the midst of this very difficult time for us all. So many of his experiences and feelings mirror my own and he articulates them honestly and thoughtfully, as ever. Thanks to both of you.
