Since then, she has been finding ways to work through her grief, navigate parenthood and take steps to finding joy again. Join Alexandra on her continued grief journey, find some tips and tricks, hear from others about their grief journey and know you are not alone. Alexandra is an advocate and public speaker for resources in the aftermath of suicide.

Great listen, so honest!

It feels as if I’m hanging out with two of my friends while I’m listening. They are both so open and honest, which is so refreshing.

Two thumbs up

The Russian Sisters is a great podcast for podcast newbies and veterans. I was not a podcast listener until TRS and now eagerly await each episode. They cover a variety of fun and difficult topics with humor, honesty, first-hand experiences, and most importantly, without judgment. Anna & Alexandra are fun, insightful, helpful, & a pleasure to listen to. Highly recommend for all.
