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 talks with comedian Ajai Raj, whose best friend Jacob took his own life 6 years ago. We talk about the dangers of depression, and how strongly suicide can affect the people beyond just one's family. We also talk about who is allowed to grieve, and how difficult it can be to incorporate ideas about death and grief into comedy.

Ajai has a podcast of his own as well called "Notes From a Void." Subscribe here!

In this episode Jordon sits down with comedian Geoff Kole, whose mother died of cancer when he was still in high school, and whose father died more recently, if you consider 10 years ago recent.

With all the ups and downs that come in the grief process, Geoff has seemingly taken everything in stride, and truly exemplifies the notion that the show must go on.
