New griefster

Sadly I just joined the club but thankfully I found this podcast. Managed to laugh, cry, and just reflect on my grief in a different way...

Interesting but …

I’ve listened to a few episodes with the guests I’m interested in. Unfortunately I find the interview technique difficult, the interruptions and the gushing so end up turning off.

Important subject.

Great but....

I just love the idea of this. It has really helped me. By me listening to it by osmosis has helped my husband understand me. I stopped listening as it was beginning to irritate me. I tried to dip in again and it’s so frustrating.

I just feel Cariad interrupts so often. I get excited to hear people speak and just end up hearing Cariad again. I definitely love the questions she asks and what she does manage to draw out when she is allowing them to speak.
