    Dating (and Breaking Up) in LA with Comedian Meryl Klemow (Campfire Sht Show)

    Today my good friend Meryl is interviewing me. She is an established comedian, not to mention one of my funniest friends. We discuss the differences between our breakups, dating in LA, and we then deep-dive on almost every date I've been on in the past year. So to tie this into grief, we are grieving our past romantic selves. Close enough! Part 1 gives the context, and Part 2 gives the tea. YODO!

    Re-Share: My Parents' Diseases: Growing Up Around ALS & Breast Cancer

    Re-Share: My Parents' Diseases: Growing Up Around ALS & Breast Cancer

    ▶▶ Welcome back to Dying Of Laughter! In this episode, I'm re-sharing the first episode I ever launched...  This is the story of my parents getting sick: my dad's journey with ALS and my mom's journey with breast cancer. Happy holidays!
    Okay, that ended a little too jolly. If you're feeling holly this year, go off; if you're feeling unhinged or unwell this year, go off. You can be holly, jolly, or nolly (not jolly) and I'd support any and of all of it. YODO, you only die once! See (hear?) you in 2024. Cheers DOLlies. 
    I really resonate with the quote: "Grief is love with nowhere to go." Maybe this podcast could be a place to go...

Great podcast!

Grief is never easy to discuss. I have a great appreciation for Chelsea’s ability to bring a community of people together who may be experiencing grief, and use humor to talk about the topic in a way that encourages healing and provides a source of comfort. -The Art of Living Well Podcast
