This month's episode, Holidays, is all about handling the first holiday after the death of a loved one. Our guests are Bryanna Tapia, whose dad died in 2006, and A.R. Vallejos, whose dad died in 2016.
Bryanna Tapia is the cousin of Death Knell host David Ruiz. When she talks about her father, it is David's uncle, his mother's brother. She and A.R. discuss Thanksgiving and Christmas, and what was expected of them after the death of their dads. How did they participate, did they have anything to be thankful for, and what do they remember most.
Mothers Rosanna and Kathleen talk about grieving after the deaths of their young adult daughters and about the international support group Compassionate Friends.
Guests Johnathan Doojphibupol and Lauren Lavin talk about losing a roommate and brother to suicide.
Guest Ned Buskirk talks about his monthly San Francisco show You're Going to Die and what he's learned about grief after hosting it for years.
