Where's the Grief?

A podcast focused on grief and loss hosted by Jordon Ferber

On the whole, many cultures do not teach us how to effectively deal with the feelings that come up when a loved one dies. 

The goal of this podcast is to acknowledge the reality of intense grief , which can be a very isolating experience, and normalize the conversation about it that is very often difficult to have with friends and even family.

 

Jordon Ferber, a bereaved sibling himself, gives people who have experienced intense loss permission to talk about it and exemplify the possibility of  making it through the darkest periods of grief to a life full of hope and happiness.

In this episode, Jordon sat down with fellow comedian and native Brooklynite Beth Maria to talk about what her process has been following thea death of her best friend Alex to suicide.

Beth reminds us that it is never just the immediate family that feels the pain of losing a loved one, even whilst having internal debates with one's self about whether or not it's ok to feel grief when you're "just a friend."

Her final thoughts on the matter of suicide and depression are quite poignant and worth taking to heart.
