Where's The Grief?

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. This podcast 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.

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 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.

    Seeking moments of genuine conversation? Listen up … people of all ages!
 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.”
