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.

Love love love

My story is almost identical to Noras. Step dad died 2010, step mom died 2011, husband dies of brain tumor 2012, real
Dad died2013. Raising 3 kids. Youngest was 5 at the time of her fathers death. So relatable and she helps me see things from the same lens which is comforting plus her fresh lens. Like “Aaron is”. My “Steve is...” thank you Nora. Love getting in my car to listen to this therapeutic podcast. Added bonus her quirky sense of humor and sarcasm. She’s so genuine. Love it!! ****keep em coming***
