The Witty Widow Podcast Premiere - Episode 1: Tawny Platis

Content Warning:

This Episode: (Death of a spouse, finding a loved one unresponsive, resuscitation attempts, saying goodbye in the home, the passing of the spouse happening in the home, lots of crying, dating after being widowed, depression, loneliness, dating apps, Beetlejuice, comic-con, skipping arm-in-arm, Hannah compares her and George's chest beauty).

This podcast addresses sensitive subjects like death and loss… often graphically and with explicit language and dark humor. Listener discretion is advised.

My dear friend and manager, Hannah (Boozy Movies podcast), interviewed me as the first guest on my new show The Witty Widow on the podcast feed Death Is Hilarious. The clips you hear in this episode are from practice stand-up routines. That's how I'm coping with the pain and trauma.

I also answer questions like; Set the scene for me: tell me about your loss and grief. Who and how? Tell me about how you used humor as a coping mechanism. What did and does your grieving process look like? When did things start feeling better? What about your grieving process surprised you? What advice would you give to someone going through what you’re going through? What advice would you give to someone who wanted to support someone going through something like you described? What else would you like to share? What do you want people, anyone, to know? What do you want to say? What do you want people to hear? What can you say about being with someone who is sick / the toll it takes on your relationship? Where do you find comfort? What’s something you feel like no one talks about in regards to grief?
