Just discovered this podcast by chance as it came across my feed. Only listened to two episodes but I’m already hooked! Having lost my mother going on three years in January, I have been completely taken off my axis which quite frankly wasn’t too steady to begin with! A podcast like this...Read full review »

Just listened to the Alan Davies episode and I absolutely loved it. It could’ve been 4 hours longer and I’ve had listened to it all. Walking through a lifetime of events of life and grief felt so relatable and remarkably soothing, as it’s just real life, marking the incredible people who we’ve...Read full review »

At the time of starting to listen to Griefcast, I hadn’t lost anyone; it was out of morbid curiosity that I took the plunge. It was funny and wildly interesting amongst the seriousness of listening to a person who had lost someone important. Since then I lost my nana and the podcast took on new...Read full review »

My husband died of Covid in January 2021, leaving me and my two children. This podcast has been part of my battle to survive and a foundation stone to my weeks. It’s allowed me to see it from my perspective and that of my 12 year old and twenty something. Thank you so much and god bless xx

My dad died very suddenly 8 months ago of a massive heart attack. I’ve totally indulged into this podcast and it’s helped me to realise I am not alone. Thank you Cariad!

Would be great to see some covid stories captured - am sure they’re in the works but having experienced it myself, have been looking for relatable stories in the aftermath of it all. All in good time I’m sure. Appreciated lots of this last series

Yesterday was my Fathers funeral, after a 10 month battle with Glioblastoma. This came a couple years of my Mum. (63 and 59 respectively) this series has been a huge comfort to me and I hope that people listen not only find to that comfort but also to learn to help support people. Especially when...Read full review »

I love Griefcast so much. It’s such an open and honest conversation about loss, which many interesting stories from brilliant guests. This podcast has given me more confidence to talk about my grief - thank you!

I love Griefcast, so much. I often feel like an intruder because I’m not really “in the club”, so to speak, but I just find it so cathartic, honest and interesting. I also think it’s helping me as I come to terms with having parents who are in poor health. Cariad is a total ledge and there have...Read full review »

Continues to be an excellent source of information and support. You will laugh and you will cry. Outstanding guests and thanks to the presenter Cariad for the committment to the show and being brave enough to sit with those sharing their bereavements. All human life is captured in this...Read full review »

I have never suffered a big grief but my mother has battled addiction throughout my whole life, so I have a lot of death anxiety and think about it happening to her at any moment. This anxiety seeps into me worrying about the death of all those close to me, including my children. This podcast has...Read full review »

Feel so privileged to hear people’s grief stories as they’re such a personal thing to share. However the presenter interrupts too much and the “yeah yeah” “Mmmms” get very irritating. She needs to let people tell their story and get it out without interruption.
EnglishRose_11 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/05/21
I am a longstanding member of the club but have found this podcast so brilliant at giving me the tools to, hopefully, help and understand the grief of those around me. Thanks Cariad, looking forward to hearing more interesting conversations in the autumn.
Graciegrace101 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/03/21
Having joined the club this year, I was recommended this by a friend and it has been very helpful. There is something very comforting about understanding how universal these experiences are, and yet the show always feels personal too. Adam Buxton was a favourite for me if you are looking for...Read full review »

I joined the club in 2017 with the loss of my Mum when I was 29 and started listening to Griefcast a few weeks in. The podcast has been a community and a lifeline to help me understand what I was going through, and that I wasn’t alone. Griefcast helped me cry when I needed to cry, laugh when I...Read full review »

In my early twenties a close friend, then a dear brother tragically and suddenly left this world. In the last two years, in my forties, my mother and my father left. Grief is utterly painful, difficult, life changing & forever present though how you live with it shifts. Hearing other people’s...Read full review »

Makes me smile and cry and process all the big feelings that keep popping up. It makes my day better every time I listen and learn more about grief.
hippyholly222 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/30/21
This is a lovely podcast. It might sound strange to hear that listening to other people talking about grief can help with your own, but it really does. I found it incredibly helpful after my mother died a few years ago to hear people talking about the same feelings and the same issues I was going...Read full review »

Unfortunately, I was forced into the ‘grief club’ by the sudden death of my younger brother in December 2020. I actively searched for a platform that helped me to process the shock and to feel less isolated. I find it cathartic to hear other people’s stories of grief. I find myself nodding in...Read full review »

I sadly lost my younger brother and best friend this year this podcast has helped me so much. Didn’t want to join this club but I can say it helps to be a member
Tillyfloss24 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/28/21
My dad died last March due to Covid and I am so thankful that you put on these amazing shows. If you have sadly joined the club or just interested I can’t recommend these podcasts more.

I’m someone who has experience grief first hand but I’m also a doctor who deals with grief every day at work (grief of death but also grief from receiving diagnoses and poor prognoses). I love this podcast from both a personal and professional standpoint. I feel like it makes me a better person...Read full review »
Rosie_tas via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/23/21
A lot of the guests are inspirational but unfortunately I find the presenter a bit gushing and laughing too much, laughing in podcasts is always very irritating and doesn’t come across- the presenter also talks too much and says ‘it’s funny’ so many times. And why call it a club? All humans from...Read full review »

Quite honestly there are no words for how fantasticly incredible and heartful these conversations are. Huge fan and love your work. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I’ve listened to a few episodes with the guests I’m interested in. Unfortunately I find the interview technique difficult, the interruptions and the gushing so end up turning off. Important subject.
Missinquisitive via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/09/21
I just love the idea of this. It has really helped me. By me listening to it by osmosis has helped my husband understand me. I stopped listening as it was beginning to irritate me. I tried to dip in again and it’s so frustrating. I just feel Cariad interrupts so often. I get excited to hear...Read full review »

Sadly I just joined the club but thankfully I found this podcast. Managed to laugh, cry, and just reflect on my grief in a different way...

This podcast is beautiful, cathartic and like a sort of therapy. So many stories shared.
Emduds via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/17/21
This is an amazing podcast I have recommended it to so many friends who would benefit from listening. Even if you are not grieving bit helps to understand how others are feeling and how you can help. Thank you
Val Alford via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/15/21
I lost my father in July 2020. It’s been incredibly hard to talk about especially in the Bengali community where grief is quickly pushed aside. I’ve found this podcast and listened to the Charlie Mackesy episode first (my friend gave me his book) and from then I binged all the episodes. It’s...Read full review »

My mother died last November and I can’t thank you enough for your podcast. It has helped me as I’ve been wading through the absolute devastation and trauma of watching her die and living without her. The grief is as complex as our relationship was and it’s good to have permission to feel it all.
Diana. UK via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/12/21
Great podcast which really is therapy to me for someone which has recently joined the club. Keep up the good work x
Rubylou11 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/01/21
Caraid does such a brilliant job. She has a warm, empathic nature that shines through in every episode. It’s so important that we talk about death more openly and this podcast is a solid step in that direction.
Nushikness via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/26/21
I’ve been listening to this podcast for a year and have generally really enjoyed it. My mother died in early 2020 and it’s been great to hear people talk about a topic that just isn’t spoken about it. I find hearing people’s experiences reassuring. However, I found the Jill Halfpenny episode a...Read full review »

I've been listening to Griefcast for a couple of years and am so glad I found it. Cariad is honest, natural, engaging and entertaining and each guest brings a fascinating and moving perspective and bit of humanity to this universal experience. It's not depressing - it's intriguing,...Read full review »

Recommended this podcast by two friends. It’s by far my favourite out of all the different ones I listen to . Even if you’re not dealing with grief, the interviews are just so brilliant and thought provoking and the guests are interviewed with such warmth, compassion and humour and respond...Read full review »

The best episode I’ve heard: Michael was so moving and as always erudite - Cariad gave him time to talk in depth - wishing Michael a continued recovery from Covid ❤️🧡💚💚💙💜

This series has really helped me process my thoughts and feelings through the generous sharing of others thoughts and feelings.
EOxford via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/25/21
I rarely finish listening to this podcast without the episode having moved or resonated with me in some way. I would highly recommend. I have laughed and cried on my dog walks listening to it. It’s good to hear people expressing feelings which you can relate to as well as often being joyous and...Read full review »

My favourite podcast has smashed it out of the park this week. Perfect episode. Well done Cariad Lloyd and Micheal Rosen.

I really appreciate the mix of comedic relief with thoughtful and compassionate conversations that we don’t have enough of around grief/loss.

It’s such a truthful podcast and I love it So moving and just a++++

I’m in my first year of studying midwifery, and have been listening to Griefcast since it began. It has helped me through my own grief when I had my first experience of loss as an adult, and the episodes on baby loss cemented my decision to enter the world of midwifery. The episode with Genelle...Read full review »

My 25 year old younger brother died suddenly and traumatically on 2 February 2021. I’m not ready to talk yet but I’m ready to listen and this has been all I’ve listened to. It’s got me through the worst weeks of my life. I can’t thank you enough.

I was bereaved as a teenager and discovered this podcast a couple of years ago. It’s so inspiring and moving to hear others stories with such a great host!

Just finished listening to Jill Halfpenny. I love this podcast, but found her episode particularly moving but also wonderfully insightful and hopeful. And wanted to send you both thanks xxx
StinaMacDo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/13/21
This is my favourite podcast hands down. It is an invaluable aid in helping myself through my grief. Highly recommended.
