Terrible, Thanks For Asking
Please join us for a live performance of the podcast featuring amazing special guests. Host Nora McInerny will provide her signature sad, funny, uncomfortable and honest take on love, grief, life and everything that comes with it. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you won’t want to miss the human connection. But you’ll need to be with us to feel it.
Terrible, Thanks for Asking is a podcast that asks people to give honest answers to the question “how are you?…” Because you always say “I’m fine” even if they’re dying inside because the barista was just being polite and could you please stop crying in line at Starbucks? Nora McInerny is the host of Terrible, Thanks for Asking, the founder of the Hot Young Widows Club and the non-profit Still Kickin, the author of the memoir It’s Okay to Laugh (Crying is Cool, too), and contributor to Elle and Cosmopolitan. In 2011, Nora McInerny’s boyfriend Aaron suffered a seizure. Which turned out to be brain cancer. Which turned out to be terminal. They got married a month later. Had a baby the next year. And they spent 3 years living the heck out of their vows. Then, Nora miscarried their second baby. Seven days later, her father died. And six weeks after that, Aaron was gone, too. These are all really sad stories, but they are not *only* sad stories. They are love stories and life stories and sometime even funny stories.
