In this episode, Jordon sits down with comedian Joe Fernandes, who is still reeling after the death of his father earlier this year, at the age of 65.
We talk about how important it is to have people in your life you can talk to about it, as well as the double edged sword to working on material about the loss to an audience.

In this episode, Jordon sits down with magician and showman Nelson Lugo!
Nelson's father died only about a month before this frank discussion about his life and career. We talk about how different losses bring about different types of grief, and about how important gallows humor is to those in the eye of the storm.
Even though it's a very recent loss, I was really amazed at just how much insight and levelheadedness that Nelson has exhibited so early on in his journey, and how much humor and wit he brings to everything that he does, be it life, death, or magic.

In this episode, Jordon sits down with singer/songwriter Craig Greenberg. Craig's mother died a little over a year ago after a long battle with cancer. We discuss how difficult watching your parents fade away can be, and how hard it can be to work on expressing the feelings that come up artistically.
