00: Why Grief? Why Now?

My goal for this podcast is to share stories about parent loss and grief, so that we, as a community of peers, can move through life with our grief. I know you’ll find that these stories are as much about life as they are about death. And, I hope you’re able to find a way to live with your grief by knowing you aren’t alone in your journey.

Sarah Davis is a learning experience designer in the Bay Area who focuses on empathy and storytelling in learning design. She lost her father to cancer in 2016, and since then, has been exploring her relationship to loss, grief and mortality through hiking, spirituality, community, and writing. This episode covers her story, and why she chose to create a podcast on grief and parent loss.
