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.

Thank you

I have to say that Nora is my hero. I’ve been hit by three major life changing events. The death of my mother, the divorce from the love of my life, and the financial ruin that has come from the afore mentioned. I had no where to turn for inspiration as I have no family and no friends who understand what I’ve been through. I highly recommend this podcast! The humanity and struggle of life is brought to the listener by someone whom has been through a truly great struggle herself. Truly amazing and inspirational to listen to. A great help for anyone going through this crazy thing called life. THANK YOU NORA. Keep your head up and I will too🤍

All About Nora

I used to LOVE this podcast but with the last episode about Hans (congrats!) I. Just. Can’t. It’s not enjoyable to listen to inside jokes and giggling. I am finding myself unable to tolerate Nora trying so many elements of a story to herself and her own life experiences or to allude to an inside joke. I get it, it’s heavy content and you need to lighten the load, but I don’t need to be enlightened by the host or hear her laughing about something funny she did to another coworker.
