Terrible, Thanks for Asking
Death is not fair and it is not orderly and it doesn't care how much you can bear. So discovered Nora McInerny Purmort, who in 2014 lost her unborn child, her father and her husband in quick succession. She was 31. In the year that followed, she staggered onward, raising her young son, trying to understand what had happened to her life. Then, while she was still grieving, she met another man and fell pregnant again. She wrote about it all in a book, and now explores it in this podcast, an honest and (somehow, often) funny excavation of the experience of grief. In conversation with other people who have lost the ones they love, and in the sharing of her most private memories, McInerny reveals herself to be quick-witted and charming, a generous friend, an ordinary person despite what has happened to her. She is good company, in other words, for staring down the implacable horizon of mortality. The series just launched and new episodes are out weekly.
