You know how every day someone asks "how are you?" And even if you’re totally dying inside, you just say "fine," so everyone can go about their day? This show is the opposite of that. Hosted by author and notable widow (her words) Nora McInerny, this is a funny/sad/uncomfortable podcast about talking honestly about our pain, our awkwardness, and our humanness, which is not an actual word. From American Public Media.

A+ important grief stories

I have loved this podcast from the beginning but Nora is beginning to wear on me. She needs to keep her personal opinions about things like religion and politics to herself. I love the stories and I’m hoping to be able to continue listening. Please just let people tell their stories *cough cough and let them be the focus. Otherwise you’re potentially alienating people who need these stories too.

Love it BUT

Love the content. But the lip smacking right up against the mic and the swallowing sounds have GOT to stop. I have to turn this off at a certain point because I got so irritated and grossed out.
