Death is an inevitable part of life, and yet it can be difficult and uncomfortable to talk about the process of grief amongst one's peers. In this podcast comedian and bereaved sibling Jordon Ferber helps shine some light into the darkest parts of our own existence and encourage a more open discussion about the effects of grief, and offers coping mechanisms to those suffering through open and honest conversations with other comedians and performers who have unique perspectives on the process of grief.

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.

 Jordon does a thorough job in helping his guests convey how their grief is going. As with past guests, the discussions are the genuine - the realest voices out there in podcast land. I appreciated Nelson’s insights - from the 'I miss the fuck out of him...' to how he conveys the humour in life after someone dies.

In each and every episode I’ve listened to, I’ve been inspired to facts that these fellows help me to realize:
- grieving people are not crazy for feeling sad. 
- missing our sibling is real and okay. Period.
- our humor remains intact despite a siblings’ death.
Thank you x 1,000 Jordon for the work you’ve set out to do for us siblings. This podcast confirm for us all, “grief is weird.”
