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.

I’ve been a loyal listener & huge fan but recently I had to stop an episode mid-cast because the background music is awful. It’s so distracting. Your content and delivery is plenty captivating without it- please stop the music! Thanks.
