Death: Love, grief and hope
In 2011, journalist Mark Longley's daughter Emily was murdered when she was 17 years old. This three-part series tells the story of Emily's life, and her death. It examines death and its impact on us - how we mourn, how we cope, how we treat the grieving. We've interviewed people who have lost parents and partners, grandparents and children, and talked to friends, colleagues and academics to figure out why grief is so hard to process, why are we so awkward around those who are in pain, and what can we do to help people through it. Death is a podcast about love, grief, and ultimately hope.

Honest, raw and helpful podcast
Hugely personal stories of grief but it never was too heavy to listen to. Found the information provided on how to deal with grief and how to deal with those who have lost someone hugely helpful. Thanks for sharing your stories.
