Grief In Common - Winston's Wish

03-07-2023 • 23 mins

Do people treat you differently after a bereavement? Daisy (13) and Rosie (22) had very different ways of telling their friends and classmates that their dads had died and found people responded in unexpected ways. In this episode, they explore their different grief journeys but also find plenty of common ground. The conversation covers how their friends reacted and schools supported them, how they mark their dads’ birthdays and the importance of making memories with someone who has a terminal diagnosis.


Content warning: mentions of death, alcoholism and cancer throughout.


This episode was recorded over Zoom.
