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 Filmmaker Molly Gandour, who was just 10 years old when her 14 year old sister Aimee died of childhood leukemia. 16 years later, working in the film industry, Molly decided to make a documentary about her own discovery and ultimate ownership of her own experience of the facts that lead to the death of her sister. The film, Peanut Gallery, follows Molly back to her childhood home as she begins to talk with her parents very openly about what happened. The film has intimate conversations at home, at the dinner table as well as family therapy sessions, and features the kind of archival footage that most families have.

In this interview, Jordon and Molly cover a lot of topics related to sibling grief, as well as what it's like to tell ones story publicly.

In this Episode, Jordon sits down to talk with Comedian, Musician and Professional Poker Player Clayton Fletcher!

Clayton's father Ashton Fletcher, himself a well known and respected pillar of the Jazz community passed away 7 months ago, leaving behind a family that, although deep in grief, is also bolstered by having had such a magnanimous and joyful leader for so long.

We talk a lot about the structure of comedy, and how important it is to be present in one's life, regardless of the twists and turns that it takes, and to always be full of gratitude for the things that we have had.

Happy 2016! In the same way that episode Zero was an introduction to the podcast, this interlude episode is just a year end review of the work I've done thus far, and an eye towards the future.

Thanks everyone for listening, and for continuing to help me expand my audience.
