Episode 123: Grief Special with Cariad Lloyd

Episode 123: Grief Special with Cariad Lloyd

By Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn

Our guest for this ep is the fab Cariad Lloyd - comedian, mum, and host of the brilliant Griefcast podcast.

We talk about her experience of losing her Dad when she was 15, and why she started Griefcast. We get some practical tips about what to say to someone who's grieving, and suggestions for things you can do to help them through. It's all funnier than it sounds, honest.

There's also some chat about Cariad's comedy career, which has included appearances in QI and Peep Show, plus what it's like to be the first in your group of friends to have kids. We play a new game, Dead or Alive, and round off with some Scummy Mummy Confessions.
