Good Mourning shines a light on what grief is really like with honesty, hope and humour. Hosts Sally Douglas and Imogen Carn are two mates who are real, truthful, a little bit sweary and on a mission to help others feel less alone after loss. No topic is off limits as they speak to inspiring guests about all things grief and share tips and advice on how to cope from their community of fellow grievers across the globe. A grief support group in a podcast, it’s a space where you’ll feel understood, connected to others and even have the odd ‘aha!’ moment where everything you’re experiencing starts to make more sense. Most importantly, you’ll feel less alone. Connect with us: Grief is the price we pay for love, but it can be lonely.
