Special Bonus Ep: Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica (with Nora McInerny)

Gee Thanks, Just Bought It!

No new episode of Gee Thanks! this week because Nora McInerny and I are: a) in Las Vegas, together, writing and working and peeing our pants laughing and b) we really wanted to share an episode of our new project, a Patreon podcast called NOBODY ASKED where we revisit the early 2000s reality television shows that shaped our lives (and pee our pants laughing).SUBSCRIBE HERE! www.patreon.com/geethanksandfriends We start with Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. This is an abridged version of our first episode of the show — the unedited, ad-free version is about 40 minutes longer and is on Patreon. Part II of our Newlyweds exploration is there too. This weekend we will dive into a much-requested revisit of Rich Girls, and we will record it IRL. Gee Thanks! will be back next Friday with guest Grace Farris, who you can follow on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/coupdegracefarris but I have a feeling you’re probably following her already.Visit www.Instagram.com/geethanksjustboughtitpod and click the link in bio to get more Gee Thanks! all over the world wide web. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Nuanced Grief, with Nora McInerny

Help A Human Out

Grief is complicated. And just because your grief doesn’t meet some trivial standard of what society thinks is grievable, doesn’t make it any less real. On this episode, Ms. Danielle talks with friend, author, TED Talker, podcast host and professional griever (which is a sleek way of saying someone who has experienced a lot of hard things in life) Nora McInerny about nuanced grief and what we are “allowed” to grieve.  Follow @hahopodcast on Instagram for more!

Nora McInerny on Supporting People Through the Hard Stuff (and a Gift Idea Too)

A Thing or Two with Claire and Erica

How do you show up for your people when they’ve grieving, dealing with loss, and/or just generally going through a really shitty time? What a genuine joy it was to talk about this with Nora McInerny, whose podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking you obviously know (right?). And first: some JIC gifts. In case of emergency gifts for grown-ups: consumables (candles, condiments, beauty products!). For babies: Lewis swaddles and Sophies. For kids: Twee chalk, Sunprint Kits, and Omy coloring posters. Dig into everything Nora McInerny puts out into the world, including the tremendous podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking and her books It's Okay to Laugh (Crying Is Cool Too), No Happy Endings, and Hot Young Widows Club (and created a Facebook grief support group of the same name). The NYT piece on the sex educator Justine Ang Fonte and the platinum rule. The Ring Theory, which we really buy into and talk about a lot!  A Kids Book about Empathy...that’s potentially useful for adults, too. Friends, this TikTok series from Carly Aquilino on Y2K fashion. We really want to hear your friend-supporting thoughts. Share them at @athingortwohq, podcast@athingortwohq.com, and 833-632-5463.  So much more where this came from at Secret Menu.

Replay Ep 27: Very Visible Headphones With Nora McInerny

Gee Thanks, Just Bought It!

4/2/2021 Note: Taking a mental health reset this week so replaying one of my fav convos with someone I now consider a great friend!! Nora McInerny is hot and tall and hysterical and she joins us today because I am trying to be her third husband. I have maybe never laughed harder in my life as we recorded this and Nora is a woman who has made a living out of talking about grief. Many of you told me Nora was a national treasure. Many of you...are correct.Follow along with recs (and share your own via DM) on the “Gee Thanks, Just Bought It!” Instagram: www.instagram.com/geethanksjustboughtitpodNora and I discuss literally who can even say, because I blacked out while recording this and all I remember is cackling for over an hour! Her product pick is a good antidote to the airpod life, and I am starting to suspect all of the best authors are working out before they sit down to write, which means I will never write another book again.Mentioned On This Episode!Subtext Books in MN: https://subtextbooks.com/books?category=Nora+McInernyBAD MOMS: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bad_MomsArctic Tumblr: https://amzn.to/2TOzigtBose Headphones (Noise Cancelling): https://amzn.to/3dcFcjkMore inexpensive alternative: https://amzn.to/3dcYZPASee acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
