I'm excited to share that Sam and I have moved our podcast to its very own home- DeathIsHilarious.com
If you're new to the show, Death Is Hilarious is a podcast that explores using dark humor to cope with trauma, grief, and loss.
I was the creator of the Dirty Bits Podcast with my late husband, George. After he passed away in our home on November 8, 2019, I coped with the trauma by turning our podcast into the show now known as Death Is Hilarious with Sam Peterson.
Sam and I have worked together creatively and professionally for over a decade. We also have a long history of writing letters to each other- letters filled with plenty of jokes about our various traumas. We now read these letters to each other on the podcast. We also interview other content creators on how they themselves use dark humor as a coping mechanism.
I am an alien from outer space figuring out how to be a person. And I think everyone feels like that sometimes.
After getting my Computing & the Arts degree from UCSD, I spent a decade as an ADHD-preneur. This gave me mad skills in many life areas.
Above all, I’m a storyteller. I want to give my audience metaphors, little footholds to make the next steps mentally as we all sort out our own narratives. I am naive enough to like Earth, but real enough to see it has a lot of problems. I do my small part to help.
We'd love to hear from you! Get in touch by emailing us at DeathIsHilarious@gmail.com
