Description

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.

Policing and Racial Trauma with Angela Davis
00:55:37
For many people, the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis was the latest graphic instance of a Black American being killed by the police -- and his homicide the most recent national example of historic, institutional discrimination against people of color and indigenous groups. Our colleagues at Call to Mind -- an APM / MPR initiative to inform and mobilize new conversations about mental health -- recently put a spotlight on the trauma of Black Americans and how it intersects with policing. Today, we're sharing the panelists' important conversations with you. Thank you to: - Angela Davis, host of MPR News with Angela Davis on Minnesota Public Radio.

An update on Horrible and Wonderful and Figuring It Out
00:58:36
We have an update on a past episode! Harris Wittels was the executive producer of "Parks and Recreation," the coiner of the word "humblebrag," a Phish enthusiast, and the funniest person in any room he walked into. He died of a heroin overdose in 2015, leaving behind his mother, his sister, and a lifetime of talent and potential. You can catch up with TTFA on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook using @ttfapodcast.

It Just Happens
00:48:11
There are things - like the death of a child - that are unimaginable. Actually, we'd mostly just prefer not to imagine them. But for some people, like Jayson and Stacy, that thing is their reality. Sometimes it just happens. Whether we want to imagine it or not. You can catch up with TTFA on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook using @ttfapodcast. Nora's Instagram is @noraborealis.
