In a surprisingly upbeat episode, my friend Becky McCoy and I tackle the topic of grief. We talk about grief as it’s portrayed in pop culture, and how pop culture can help a person heal from loss or grief. Based on the amount of laughter in this episode, we either have a fantastic perspective on these topics…or we’re just big weirdos who love talking about sad things. Tune in and then tell us which you think it is!
This episode is part of a special summer series, by the way, where I’m sharing some of my very favorite episodes of The Couch with you. Every episode I’ve curated for you will help you during this season that looks and feels different than anything we’ve experienced before. (And if you want to stay in touch this summer, please join me at The Couch Facebook group! We have so much fun over there, and I’d love to connect with you.)
