Terrible, Thanks For Asking

You know how when someone asks "How are you?" you just say "Fine,” even if you’re totally dying inside, so everyone can go about their day? “Terrible, Thanks For Asking” is the opposite of that. Nora McInerny asks real people to share their complicated and honest feelings about how they really are. It’s sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and often both. From American Public Media.

From The Edge

If you know what it feels like to be on the brink of an emotional meltdown, you’re not alone. Many of us feel like we’re at the end of a rapidly fraying rope … like we’re falling behind in life and it’s solely our fault … like the reason for our problems is our inability to make lemonade out of climate change and racial injustice and a global pandemic. Nora recently asked folks to share what it’s like to be standing at the edge of an existential crisis, and you responded with your stories.That Atlantic article Nora mentioned?

Bread, Sweat and Tears

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of folks got really into bread baking. Banana bread! Biscuits! Sourdough! (So much sourdough.) Ashley got into bread baking too, but for an entirely different reason. A week before quarantine began, Ashley’s wife died of a heart attack after years of living with cerebral palsy. Ashley wasn’t just lonely … she was ALONE. So she turned to baking as a way to heal.Can’t get enough TTFA? Sign up for TTFA Premium for $8 a month.

Name It

Ryan’s life often feels like a Venn diagram. Ryan the person loves listening to metal and The Grateful Dead. Ryan the person is a sneakerhead who reads Punisher comic books at night. Ryan the person is also queer — bisexual — and a recovered alcoholic. Brother Ryan, on the other hand, is a man who has taken strict religious vows. Brother Ryan is a man who believes in the beauty of communal living. Brother Ryan spends his life dedicated to service through education.These two versions of Ryan must find a way to exist together, or he could lose everything.Can’t get enough TTFA?

Leticia & Anthony (Part 2)

At the end of part one, things were finally looking good for both mother and son: Anthony had just welcomed his own daughter into the world; Leticia had married a wonderful man and was settling into life in the suburbs. But mental illness is a vicious beast, and in this episode, Leticia revisits 2017 — the last year of Anthony’s life. Join the TTFA reading club:  [TTFA.org/readingclub] (http://ttfa.org/readingclub) Our twice-monthly newsletter features behind-the-scenes content, previews of upcoming episodes and more.  [Sign up.] (http://ttfa.org/newsletter) When you shop our Bookshop.org store, you support the author, independent bookstores AND our show!  [Shop here.] (https://bookshop.org/shop/ttfapodcast) Shop for your favorite TTFA gear at  [TTFAmerch.com] (https://stillkickin.co/collections/terrible-thanks-for-asking) [Read the transcript for this episode here.] (https://www.ttfa.org/story/2021/05/18/leticia-anthony-part-2-transcript) You can catch up with TTFA on  [Instagram] (https://www.instagram.com/ttfapodcast/) ,  [Twitter ] (https://twitter.com/ttfapodcast) and  [Facebook ] (https://www.facebook.com/ttfapodcast) using @ttfapodcast.

A Good Death

We all want a good death — a death where we’re surrounded by the people we love and don’t feel any fear or pain. A good death is what Ron Deprez wanted when his body became ravaged by ALS… and thanks to his daughter, Esmé, and Maine’s death with dignity legislation, that’s exactly what he got. In this episode, Esmé Deprez shares her father’s story with us. Esmé is a very talented writer and journalist.

That's So Chad

Many of us have been forced to adopt a new way of grieving over the past year. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our ability to properly mourn the way we need to when a loved one dies. We can’t safely gather by the dozens and sit in pain with one another for days on end. Stacy Cooper’s husband, Chad, died last fall, so she knows this all too well.
