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.

Jordon and Harmony have been friends for nearly 10 years, having met at their local Compassionate Friends sibling group shortly after the death of Harmony's sister Hannah. Having just finished a recent run of her One-Woman-Musical "Afraid of Karma," Harmony reflects on the impact of doing the show, and what she's learned in the 10 years since her sisters death.

In this episode Jordon interviews Jeff Glasse, comedian and entrepreneur. Jeff's mother died of cancer when we was just 21 years old, and nearly 20 years later, his brother Joey met the same fate.

We talk about how experiencing grief early in life helped prepare Jeff for the losses he would experience as an adult.

We also talk about the importance of acknowledging and being grateful for having had certain experiences in the face of also being devastated by the knowledge that we will never have them again.
