Nora steps in to guest host the podcast that just might be Too Beautiful To Live -- a delightful daily show about life, current events, pop culture, puttering, laser baldness helmets, and tonight pants. While regular co-host Andrew Walsh is out of town, Nora and other co-host Luke Burbank discuss sheds, consumer culture, parenting, and because it's Nora, officiating the funeral of a man who married a stranger at the Mall of America.

The INTERNET never forgets (dang it). 
When the world breaks everything, when everything is The Absolute Worst, you’re lucky if you have people to lean on. You’re even luckier if they’re your siblings. Meet Alex, David and Liza Achilli. Which… I really wanted to call this episode The Achilli’s Heal, but I just… I couldn’t do it. Or could I?
At 32 weeks pregnant, Cat and Jim find themselves planning for their son’s death while hoping for his birth. This is a story of a life and a death, extraordinary in every way.
As the saying goes, "There’s a lid for every pot." There’s someone for everyone. Chelsea has been looking for her lid — her someone — since high school. Nearly 15 years after her only real relationship ended, she still hasn’t found her person. It’s not like she hasn’t been trying, and it’s not like her life is totally miserable… but in case you haven’t had to date lately? MAN, IT IS EXHAUSTING.
In our last episode, we met chronically single Chelsea, who was looking for love in all the same places we all look for love... and coming up empty-handed. Now, we meet Chelsea's new boyfriend (!!!!) and explore what happens when the love we find isn't what we expected.
Courtney and Jay are parents to 9-year-old Bruce, who they affectionately call Baby Huey. Bruce has never had a friend. Never had a playdate. Never been invited to a birthday party. What. The. Heck.

We have an update on a past episode! Harris Wittels was the executive producer of "Parks and Recreation," the coiner of the word "humblebrag," a Phish enthusiast, and the funniest person in any room he walked into. He died of a heroin overdose in 2015, leaving behind his mother, his sister, and a lifetime of talent and potential. You can catch up with TTFA on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook using @ttfapodcast.

Need a slight daily readjustment of your point of view? A moment to focus and meditate on something besides your to-do list? We want to introduce you to The Slowdown. It's a podcast we love where every weekday, U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith delivers a different way to see the world -- through poetry. It is produced in partnership with the Library of Congress and the Poetry Foundation, and is very very good. Nora takes a few minutes to talk with Tracy K. Smith and to share with you a couple of examples of the show. You can find The Slowdown at slowdownshow.org.
