A podcast about death… with comedians.

How do we grieve for someone? How does it change and evolve as we get older? For this special live edition of Cariad Lloyd’s award-winning podcast, Cariad will be joined by special guests to discuss all things death and dying. From awkward funeral songs to whether there is an afterlife, to what canapés you want at the funeral after party. Cariad will be guiding her guests through the weirdness, humour and pain of grief and death.

 

Cariad’s own father died when she was 15, it took her years to be able to express what had happened to her, so she created Griefcast – a safe space for her guests to talk honestly about death and grieving. Past guests have included Robert Webb, Sara Pascoe, Aisling Bea and David Baddiel. Griefcast is available to download on Acast or wherever you get your podcasts from.

 

Show 1 hour long

Doors open 18:30, show at 19:00
