Most people don't learn about death until they have to. Brooke's father was diagnosed with cancer and was in hospice six months later. Through this podcast Brooke is building the resource she couldn't find when she was looking for comfort. The goal of this podcast is to better equip us to talk about grief, death, and loss by exposing people to different stories about loss and providing practical advice that relates to end-of-life.
Note that you don't need to listen to the episodes in order. Start with whatever seems most meaningful to you wherever you are.

Brooke’s podcast is insightful and intelligent. Grief is a difficult thing to discuss, but she always does so with elegance. I also, truly appreciate how she discusses all types of grief, not just those that are commonly thought of.
I appreciate this podcast for all it is
I was initially drawn to grief coach because of its pragmatic approach to handling the loss of a loved one. Now i continue to listen to Brooke because i am simply delighted by her perceptiveness and the perspective she offers
Never heard someone better on the topic of grief. Brooke knows exactly the threads to pull and how to pull them and when to call on others to help in doing so. Truly phenomenal podcast that has offered me such helpful perspective.
