Let's talk about what’s killing us, the stuff that’s hard to comprehend and getting worse every day. Lemonada co-founder and author Stephanie Wittels Wachs confronts massive epidemics with humanity, wit, and a quest for progress. Starting with overdose deaths and the opioid crisis, we zoom in on a person’s last day of life, exploring how they got there and how we, as a society, have gotten here.
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.
The Heart is an audio art project about power and love. From Mermaid Palace and Radiotopia.

Hi, I’m Tawny Platis, the Witty Widow and creator of the new Podcast feed Death Is Hilarious. It’s one feed, with three shows about coping with loss and grief through comedy and entertainment. When my husband and fellow creator of the Dirty Bits Podcast passed away in November of 2019 when I was 28 years old, I immediately fell into writing and comedy as a way to cope. Now, I’m traveling around the country to interview your favorite podcasters and artists on how they found relief from grief through laughter and comedy on my new show, The Witty Widow. This show will also feature segments from my stand-up comedy routines. The podcast is currently in production and is slated for release in early 2020. Tune in for bonus shows now like Monday Mourning Maisel, where you can Join Midge Maisel and me as we cope with the loss of our spouses and learn lessons about moving through grief with comedy. And Entertaining Grief, a series where I talk about how watching and relating to movies and shows has been helping me gain perspective on and cope with the death of my husband. Search Death Is Hilarious in your favorite podcast listening app and subscribe... or visit TawnyVoice.com/podcast to subscribe and listen in. About Our First Podcast: The Dirty Bits ​​The Dirty Bits podcast was a show that covered the fierce, sexy, funny, scandalous, freaky, and salacious stories from history your teacher probably left out. Casually told by a sarcastic voice-over actor, as a caricature of herself and Southern California. You can still find episodes featuring George and me on the Death Is Hilarious feed!
A show about clinical depression...with laughs? Well, yeah. Depression is an incredibly common and isolating disease experienced by millions, yet often stigmatized by society. The Hilarious World of Depression is a series of frank, moving, and, yes, funny conversations with top comedians who have dealt with this disease, hosted by veteran humorist and public radio host John Moe. Join guests such as Maria Bamford, Paul F. Tompkins, Andy Richter, and Jen Kirkman to learn how they’ve dealt with depression and managed to laugh along the way. If you have not met the disease personally, it’s almost certain that someone you know has, whether it’s a friend, family member, colleague, or neighbor. Depression is a vicious cycle of solitude and stigma that leaves people miserable and sometimes dead. Frankly, we’re not going to put up with that anymore. The Hilarious World of Depression is not medical treatment and should not be seen as a substitute for therapy or medication. But it is a chance to gain some insight, have a few laughs, and realize that people with depression are not alone and that together, we can all feel a bit better. American Public Media and HealthPartners’ Make It Okay campaign are committed to breaking the stigma around mental health.

She discusses grief and child loss with other grieving parents and those who work to help them in their grief. This podcast is for grieving parents and well as those who support them.
