Good first episode, then falls off.

By Hotdogadog - Jul 19 2018

TTFA starts out strong but runs out of steam after about one season. I think it loses its edge once the author has more or less gone through the grief process of losing her husband. After that, it becomes a typical narcissistic NPR podcast. This podcast is quite focused on a woman’s perspective and doesn’t present it in a way that’s always accessible to the male audience. The segments are very personal but they do not feel personal in a way that’s open for everyone to empathize with; rather, the audience feels more like a voyeuristic intruder observing the interactions between the author and who she is interviewing. The ads are self-indulgent, over-produced tripe as well and really get on my nerves. It’s an OK listen if you’ve run through the rest of your podcast queue and you don’t mind sitting through several minutes of personal messages from the author to her interview subjects speckled with annoying in-jokes.

My mom died, thanks...

I started listening to this over the winter and immediately fell in love. I’ve always loved storytelling but this was something so raw, intimate. Just this past Saturday, my mother died unexpectedly and this podcast has been everything to me. It’s not that misery loves company but rather empathy needs a friend. Life does go on. Sometimes it’s one second at a time or one episode at a time but there’s hope 💜
