Wonderful Truths That Need to Be Heard

by Walker and Listener on Dec 08, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Ahhhh where do I even start??? I was thrust into the world of terminal illness, loss and grief in 2010, when my dear husband was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma. We had three children who were 15, 18 and 21 at the time. In the ensuing years, I have become well educated in all things related to grief and loss, both for me, my children and our small community. (he was a public, beloved figure). He died in 2012 and when I found your podcast a year ago, I found my PEOPLE!!!!! I frequently send links to episodes to my children and often to other friends I know who are going through loss. THANK YOU for speaking the truth that so many of us know. It makes it so much less painful to live in a world where we are not allowed to be who we are. My only regret is that I had to live those first 4 years after he died, without you!!!!!!!!

This is the podcast that got me into podcasts. I read the title and knew it was for me. I love that the episodes are real, raw, and relatable.

Honest, heartfelt, and important

This show reminds me that I am not the only person who feels burdened by their emotions/mental health and that it is possible to stand back up and keep moving. I love how compassionate and honest the show is. Also I LOVED the pilot episode of childhood... please make more!

This podcast is amazing.

Nora is a master storyteller. I cry almost every episode! Each guest on the show has such an impactful story that makes me want to cry with them and give them a giant bear hug. I definitely recommend this podcast to everyone! BTW I’ve never left a podcast review and typically don’t do any reviews on anything but I feel so strongly about this podcast I couldn’t NOT write a review.

I absolutely love this podcast! I recently started listening to it and I can't get enough of it. I love all the stories and they often make me cry! Keep up the great work!

Truly a gift

Nora (and her friends and guests) are a gift I didn’t know I needed or wanted. I stumbled across a short video of Nora sharing that it’s “okay to not be okay.” I could have written the script for that video myself. So I was hooked. I read about Nora and eventually found this podcast. I listen as much as I can while still trying to work and be a mom and a functioning adult. Going through a tough season in my life, I’ve found that it helps to talk about it. I want to help others talk about their hard seasons too, but I’m not there yet... TTFA helps me so much, just by listening. So please, keep talking...

O.K. It's painful and honest and terrifying. But it's funny and insightful and humble. I always feel like I will be a better person for having heard these conversations. I want to drink a cuppa with Nora and every person she's interviewed so far. Such a good part of my day. Thanks Nora. Thanks brave souls on her show.

Pretty good

Yes I’d love to hear more episodes like that one. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I almost skipped it because I’m 70 years old and have no children. I am however, an aunt and great aunt of many and thought I might benefit from the episode. More please.

This podcast is beautiful because it let me know that it’s okay to have feelings. While I’ve never been through any kind of trauma like Nora’s I don’t feel I have no right to feel sad, angry, or depressed because my struggles are different. Instead, it makes me feel empowered to feel those things alongside happiness and joy, along with all the other complex emotions in between. I am thankful for the perspective it provides and the permission to feel.

Very high praise from a podcast addict

by Dion Hazelbaker on Nov 21, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

I'm always surprised to find a podcast that pleases me on the same level as This American Life and RadioLab and those show's often deeply emotional gut-punching stories about loss, depression, and how it can feel terrible to be a human. The Terrible team is wonderful at doing all these things when telling deeply sorrowful experiences, and they even throw in some jokes to laugh at all the despair and recovery. Most importantly, this show is a well-produced and continual reminder that almost everyone is working through something tough, and I very much appreciate your efforts and stories dealing with the awful situations life throws our way.

TTFA is a masterfully edited podcast, with real people telling real stories. I’ve found that I can relate, somehow, to every person featured on the podcast. It’s simplistically revolutionary, just the thought that it’s actually okay to not be okay. It’s even helped me work out some of my own anxieties. Thank you, Nora, for the amazing work you do :)

You want Nora McInerny to tell you all the sadness, while also holding your hand through the microphone, making you laugh through the tears. Fearless, strong, straight to the point.

Glad to hear a Black narrative

by Sumssssss on Nov 18, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Thank you for the episode entitled, “What does all this loss mean.” I’ve been listening since TTFA started and am entranced by the perseverance of each guest, including the host. Nonetheless, with the exception of the postpartum episode, this episode dealt with loss that is unique to the Black experience. Loss is an a way that is both figuratively and literally pervasive, widespread loss. Jaamil’s story was powerful and tells a tale that is as old as the black American experience. Truly glad to have heard it, thank you.

100 percent yes!

This podcast is amazing! Makes me feel more human. Makes me feel like I am not alone. And makes me feel like my feeling are more “normal”. Thank you for giving me this gift. Can’t wait to hear more! I sent in my story. It is a pretty terrible one. I hope to hear from you guys.

This podcast is so good. So so good. And so terrible. My heart breaks with each story. I don’t think I’ve made it through a single episode with out tearing up (or straight up bawling). The people who share their stories are so brave and it makes for a wonderfully emotional podcast to listen to. It makes me want to hug people and be a better person. We humans are so resilient. Even when we shouldn’t have to be. All the feels.

What Nora is doing is so beautiful

It’s amazing how this podcast is so honest and nurturing at the same time. I truly feel enriched by what has been shared on this pod. I carry these people and their life events around with me and think of, wish and pray for their continued healing.

Nora is a rare gem. Brave, warm, funny and above all real. This podcast is a gift, particularly if you can currently say that you are, “Terrible, but thanks for asking.”

terrible things happen to everyone eventually, so if one of those things is happening, has happened, or may someday happen to you, check out this podcast - it's about regarding those things unflinchingly, or maybe sometimes flinchingly, but not alone

I just found this podcast a week ago and I’ve already listened to 16 episodes. I laughed, I cried, then listened to the next episode. Clearly, the next step for me is to make a donation!

This podcast transports you to the being right in the shoes of the person telling their story. Get your tissues ready, but a great listen and very heartwarming to see the real human side of people and their struggles. Great job!

Nora. Thank you.
