Good Grief tells the everyday stories of grief in a serialized format. Season 1 follows my own story. In January 2015, my estranged biological father passed away. In the weeks following, I learned two things: 1) He had a second family. 2) That second family was mine. Season 2 is out soon.

Like the best episode of "Millennial" you've ever heard
Sam is a star, and taking this journey with her is beyond satisfying. In all the podcasts I listen to, even the ones that center around emotional comings-of-age, none have had a story like this. I think if this were an episode of "Millennial," everyone would be talking about it for weeks on end. "Good Grief" should get that honor anyways. Congrats, Sam. Can't wait to keep listening, and I hope you have many more podcast journeys to follow in the future.
A great example of confessional podcast.
Sam is going on a personal family journey and she is taking us with her. This is a great podcast for those who like personal confessional coming-of-age and self-exploratory shows featuring a smart and curious young woman who is funny and lovable. I can’t wait to hear what is coming up on this journey!
With so much fake and staged entertainment it is rare to find this quality of raw emotion and confession and thought process. The end of episode two almost put me into tears. Can't wait for more, excited to be a part of this journey. ✌🏼❤😊🙏
