late arrival to this one. Heard a lot about it so grabbed a bunch of episodes. it's an enjoyable listen. So far, I haven't had to deal with grief at this level, but this will inevitably end, so maybe this is preparation

Such a wonderful listen. Sometimes hard, often funny, it's a real insight into the grieving process. Cariad is amazingly warm and open - it's a must listen on so many levels.

... and for anyone who's trying to understand someone who's grieving

Description

My goal right from the beginning was that I wanted it to be a podcast that, when it stopped, you didn’t feel worse,” says Cariad Lloyd, host of Griefcast, a weekly interview podcast where media personalities share stories about loved ones they've lost. “We’re all in this club that no one asked to join, and it’s really helpful when you realize there’s other people in the club. Part of grief is feeling quite isolated, so when you realize, ‘Oh, it's not just me,’ It does help.” In each episode, Lloyd makes space for natural, unhurried conversations for her guests to talk about death where, in her words, “Nobody’s going to change the subject.”


In 2016, the British actor, comedian, and writer came up with the idea of starting the show when she realized a lot of her comedian friends were doing podcasts. It coincided with her talking about her dad publicly, who passed away from pancreatic cancer when she was 15. “I’d kept it this hidden thing,” she says. "So once I started the podcast, and once people knew, people wanted to talk to me about it. It became this place where I could finally have those conversations I yearned to have.”


The multiple award-winning podcast—which recently celebrated its fifth anniversary and launched its eighth season—has evolved from Lloyd talking to her comedian friends in the UK to inviting a broader range of guests including actors, writers, and producers, allowing her to focus on more specific types of grief. This approach has been especially helpful for her listeners during the global COVID-19 pandemic, steering the show to become a salve during a time when grief has become a more prevalent topic. “I feel really glad that, when the pandemic hit, there was a bank of episodes for people to scroll through— because I feel that's been quite helpful in some ways,” she says. “When you lose someone, you often want the world to stop, and it's enraging that it doesn’t. And the world did stop. It's part of the important process of grief, that the world carries on. And that's really helpful because it reminds you that, ‘You know what? I need to carry on.’


Funny people talking about death and grief, a podcast. Hosted by Cariad Lloyd.

#103 Olivia Williams
1:11:14

This week Cariad talks to actress Olivia Williams (Sixth Sense, Dolls House, An Education) about her Dad who died six years ago. November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month and Olivia was recently diagnosed with a cancer in her pancreas. Although her cancer wasn't officially pancreatic cancer, there are so few survivors of PC that Pancreatic Cancer UK have asked her to talk about her experience to raise awareness of the disease. As ever they talk grief, morgues + Bonne Maman jars.


Demand Survival Now is PCUK's new campaign for pancreatic cancer awareness month, if you head to www.demandsurvivalnow.org.uk you can sign and spread the word on social media. Despite huge progress in the diagnosis and treatment in recent decades, pancreatic cancer remains the deadliest common cancer. It is 8 times more deadly than other common cancers like prostate, breast or bowel cancer. There are no screening programmes or early detection tests and vague symptoms – such as back pain, indigestion or weight loss – mean tragically pancreatic cancer is detected too late to save lives. 1 in 4 people die within a month of diagnosis. We need Governments to recognise pancreatic cancer as an emergency and act, if we are to transform survival.
