I Swear On My Mother’s Grave

13 EpisodesProduced by Dana BlackWebsite

A podcast about losing my mother, and talking to others who have also lost their mothers...and not just in death. I promise it will be funny too.



Today’s guest is Suzi Pond. We recorded this conversation one year ago, on Mother’s Day 2020. It was my first interview for this project/podcast. I didn’t know yet what this was going to be, but I knew I needed to talk to one of my oldest friends first, who just happened to be an editor, and someone who had lost her mother when she was just 13 years old. Suzi also loved my mother, and my mother loved her. From her car in a field in Maine, we spoke about divorce, death, raising children without a mother to guide you, how both of our mothers died alone, and what a gift it is to simply ask your grieving friends questions about their loved ones.
