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 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.
