Would love have the opportunity to offer a hug, listen to them, console them and offer a chocolate bar to those experiencing grief. Chef Jeffray D. Gardner

I love this podcast. I think Anderson, that it may be the greatest work you ever do. I have worked with grieving persons my entire career and in retirement. This podcast is amazing, warm, funny, educational and caring. Please bring us more seasons& THANK YOU!

Thanks so much for this podcast. I am currently grieving the loss of my brother and listening to these stories made me feel less lonely. I am so grateful, please bring more. This journey is overwhelmingly painful to navigate alone. Thanks, Anderson!

I listened to season one right after we lost our baby boy and it was so helpful so I called in when Anderson invited folks to share how grief has impacted their lives. When I saw the episode The Greatest Loss come up I knew it would be difficult but one day I felt I could listen. Just a few...Read full review »

I stumbled on this podcast completely unaware of what I was going to listen to that day. I thought “this is great; I can help others get through their grief by listening”. After the first one I came to realize that I myself had never really managed my own losses, only pushing down feelings I did...Read full review »

I lost my 27 year old son unexpectedly in Dec 2023 and have been numb and broken. Listening to your episodes over the last two months has made me feel a little less alone and opened my eyes to some new ways to view my grief.

Tender, heartfelt and incredibly moving, I found this just when I needed to cross a bridge into the next phase of digesting grief. It helped me immensely. I’m so thankful. It holds your hand across that bridge, and lends you the language you were looking for but were too sad to find.

Andersen does a beautiful job navigating the grief of his guests, as well as in sharing his own journey. Each episode is a deeply personal journey, unique to the guest, but familiar to all who have lost someone they love. Thank you for providing a guide of sorts, to help in moving thru the...Read full review »

Hearing you and Stephen Colbert a second time was every bit as valuable and emotionally reassuring as hearing you two the first time. Thank you. I guess I didn’t ever send this, so I will now. I just listened to you last episode, and I simply have to tell you that this experience, listening to...Read full review »

Their conversation about grief changed how I felt about my own grief of losing my mother 1.5 years ago. I'm cautious of if/how much I reminisce with my sister/nephew for fear of being called weak/not upsetting him. I haven't had anyone to share my grief with, not really, but I am going to...Read full review »

I just listened to Katie‘s story about Everly. Before I had my children, now 34 & 36, I had years of infertility. At one point I wrote a journal entry about my sorrow around not being able to get pregnant. I had had 27 periods to that point. I now know it was a grief that definitely isn’t...Read full review »

Wow
Thank you. I’ve listened only to the first episode and I’m so grateful for it. I will listen to it again, and to the others. I’m encouraged to proceed, I’m encouraged that I will survive my grief, that grief is normal, that there are others who grieve so long and so hard, and we can support each...Read full review »

Beautiful reflections, conversations on death, the process, the loss, anger, hurt, love. Deeply felt. Real. The beauty is in the real. This is real. Thank you.

I cried along with both of you all the way through. What a beautiful contribution this podcast is to this...Read full review »

I want to thank you for having the courage to share your grief for it has brought me to a point I’ve never allowed myself to get to. You see, I have never allowed myself to grieve for the loss of my loved ones because grieving their loss would mean accepting they’re no longer within arms reach!...Read full review »

This podcast has been so healing for me. To hear Anderson be so raw with his emotions reminds me it’s ok to cry. It’s ok to grieve. It’s ok to miss them. Thank you AC. You have brought a lot of light to those of us in a tunnel of darkness.

It was great to hear the many stories of grief and how we all deal with them. I lost my wife almost two years ago to cancer and find myself talking to her about my life today and can relate to a bit in every one of these stories. This podcast will make you laugh and cry and think, which are...Read full review »

Anderson, the courage you show in sharing your own grief story of loss and bringing these real life stories of others grief is life affirming and so powerful. I applaud you!! And thank you. 🙏🏼
Howardjtennis via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/08/24
For anyone who has ever lost someone…this podcast is a gift. Anderson’s raw emotion as he connects with others is beautiful. It’s what we all need in grief - to feel seen and not alone. Our culture is one that is grief illiterate and podcasts like this help make sense of the pain. Thank you...Read full review »

Thank you, Anderson, for this podcast. I lost me wife and life companion to brain cancer. We had been together since we met in college over 40 years ago. Her name was Michelle Leigh Katzaroff. And, like so many on your podcast, a great fear I have is that she will be forgotten. So, thank...Read full review »

Thank you, Anderson. If you never do another thing, your children will always have this. Of all the public things you have done…this is the one, Anderson, this is the one. And wherever they go in this world, forever, they will hear from total strangers about this gift. This podcast is your legacy.
veronicathecat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/08/24
We tend to speak of grief as something that only happens when someone dies. I’ve experienced grief over and over with the many losses of my father who made his final departure from this life over this past weekend. I’ve experienced the loss of my father, unbelievably, since the day I was born. He...Read full review »

This has become my podcasts for solo walks when I can tap in and connect to what Anderson and his guests share. Every episode helps me feel that I’m not alone, and that it’s just the opposite - I have joined a huge club that everyone joins eventually. Anderson and his guests can be your grieving...Read full review »

My mom passed in Sept 2023. Your podcast came out shortly after. It helped and continues to help me feel not alone. Thanks to you and your guests for your vulnerability. Thank you for giving me a space to be in touch with mine.
Petunia Jenkins via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/24
Hearing today’s podcast from a father who lost his son, Charlie, who had mental illness, helped me realize there are so many parents out there who are and have gone through what I had struggled through with my son, Sebastian. Knowing as a parent that you are not alone is so important. More...Read full review »

This podcast is good on so many levels. The guest’s willingness to speak and Anderson’s willingness to not only listen but share his own journey. It is not always easy to listen to the grief being shared but I benefit each time.

I stumbled upon your podcast half way through your first season and I was not quite sure why I was drawn to it.. maybe it’s because I adore you Anderson, maybe it’s because I studied death and dying in college, or maybe it just might of been that I was going to experience my very own unimaginable...Read full review »

I just listened to this episode with Randal Shelin and I’m literally panicking. My high schooler exhibits the same kind of behavior and emotions leaving homework til the last hour and then throwing a panic attack and “tantrum” when they miss the deadline. I’ve always assumed it was poor time...Read full review »

Oh Anderson, how much do I enjoy listening to your podcasts. They bring so many different emotions but most of all they bring me appreciation for the little things in life.

My sister mentioned this podcast to a family text group. I’m happy she did. It’s a reassuring podcast on a subject we tend to stray from. Sharing these thoughts helps. Give it a listen. The loss of our father in late December of 2020 changed everything. The artist, Feist lost her father around...Read full review »

What a beautiful first episode. Right now my 95 year old mom is declining. She has outlived her family and friends. Although I have a strong beliefs in life after death I’m already trying to manage my feelings about her decline.

I’ve always loved Anderson Cooper but this podcast has been incredibly meaningful to me. I lost my dad suddenly on 2021 and I felt lost, like no one understood or heard my inside pain.
