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.

Babs, thank you for your vulnerability and bravery for sharing your heart. 9/11 prayers shifted this year. I prayed for you and all who mourn on this day because it was personal day of loss. You are remembered and prayed for...
