Thankyou

Well done Jason and to your Podcast team.
Every episode is powerful, compassionate, gentle, engaging, heart warming and joyful (& emotional too) to listen to.
As a nurse of 30+ years and whom lost my own father to cancer when I was 24, I have thoroughly valued, learnt and feel counselled (30+ years late) and helped by you Jason during these wonderful podcasts.

Powerful and so, so helpful!

At first this may seem that your committing too much time to listening to very sad stories, but within minutes of the first episode you'll change your mind! These powerful and personal accounts not only entertain you with real human humour, they also give really helpful advice for anyone facing bereavement or loss - and help those of us who are lucky enough to still have our parents / children / loved ones - prepare for inevitable. I've been to a Marie Curie Hospice and they are wonderful warm places - and they've managed to capture their expertise and welcoming nature in a podcast! Thank you Marie Curie! Make sure you give it a listen - I for one am very excited for more episodes!

A really interesting listen

Really enjoyed listening to all these episodes. The guests all have their own stories - sometimes poignant, sometimes humorous. I found them all really interesting. It’s got me thinking about my family and how we have approached the deaths of our loved ones, and what we could do better in the future. Talking really is the best place to start.
