You know how every day someone asks "how are you?" And even if you’re totally dying inside, you just say "fine," so everyone can go about their day? This show is the opposite of that. Hosted by author and notable widow (her words) Nora McInerny, this is a funny/sad/uncomfortable podcast about talking honestly about our pain, our awkwardness, and our humanness, which is not an actual word. From American Public Media.

Yes, yes, yes

Nora's words give me all the feels. It is raw and real and we need so much more of it in our lives.


The episode on the 24 year old writer was insufferable. She forgets to fact check, nobody even yells at her, and then she runs away to Oregon, writes for a living, gets a PhD, gets married and writes a book? If this is an unfortunate life then my blue collar existence is likely her version of hell. You can find better subjects than this.

Brilliant Start

The first 2 episodes are fascinating but the third was unbearable. Listening to a whiney twenty something that didn't fact check her work was excruciating. I hope this podcast gets back on track.
