Terrible, Thanks for Asking

If you’re the kind of person who likes to go deep on feelings, well, you’re gonna like what we’re making this summer.

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 because your barista was really just asking to be polite and could you please stop crying in the Target Starbucks ma’am? This show is the opposite of that. Hosted by author and notable widow (her words) Nora McInerny Purmort, this is a funny/sad/uncomfortable podcast about talking honestly about our pain, our awkwardness, and our humanness, which is not an actual word. It’s not (just) about death, and it’s not about Nora. It’s about all of those things that happen in a life, and how we get through them, even when life just keeps kicking us in the privates over and over.

Terrible, Thanks For Asking launches in November 2016 from American Public Media, but subscribe in iTunes now, where you can listen to the teaser episode. You can also sign up for our newsletter and be the first to learn what’s up with the show. Can’t wait for fall? Check out Nora’s book It’s Okay to Laugh: (Crying Is Cool Too).
