13 Dec Four Podcasts on Living With Loss
One of our favorite ways to relax is by turning on a good podcast while taking a stroll around the neighborhood. If you’re working through grief or loss this holiday season, we’d encourage you to bundle up and take a gentle stroll while listening to one of these wonderful shows. Each one includes stories from mental health professionals, and those who have suffered loss themselves. Through compassion, humor, and education, they may help ease the loneliness and pain of losing a loved one.
In 2014, within the span of six weeks, host Nora McInerny lost her husband and father to cancer, and miscarried for the second time. She is no stranger to tragedy–to death’s cruel unpredictability. This podcast is one of the ways Nora works with her own grief. Each week, she interviews someone who has experienced life-altering tragedy. Together, Nora and her interviewees talk death, loss and working through trauma. Nora has created a podcast that gently probes the dark bits of our lives with compassion, humor, and love.
Hosted by Julia Samuel, a therapist specializing in grief and loss, Grief Works aims to bring light to the taboo topics of death and dying.

By bringing light to these stories, Samul shows us how to deal with life after loss.
In this podcast, mental health professionals Eleanor Haley and Litsa Williams demystify the complex and terrifying experience of living life after loss. Covering grief theory, and practical tips for coping, Haley and Williams provide relatable, informative and engaging information for mental health professionals and grievers alike.
