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.

Comedian Evan Williams lost his brother to CF (Cystic Fibrosis) and his mother to complications from Lyme disease a year later.

The roller coaster of grief that life puts you on, coupled with Evan's own struggles with sobriety make for some serious insights into why we do what we do.

Evan is about as open and vulnerable as any of my guests have been, and I can't thank him for coming on and discussing his life as frankly as he does.

This episode features an in depth interview with Alan Pedersen, Executive Director of The Compassionate Friends (TCF) the self-help support group that Jordon's sibling support group is a part of. Alan lost his daughter Ashley in 2001, and in the despair he was feeling, he re-immersed himself into his musical career, and began writing  songs that reflected what he was going through and what he wished he could say to his daughter.

Shortly after selling CDs of his music at a Compassionate Friends national conference, he began playing his music at local chapters around the country.
