“You learn to live with the pain, you grow your life around it”. Cariad Lloyd on finding humour in grief

“I was thinking about all my friends who launched a podcast and I thought, “if I had a podcast. I’d just talk to people about death. That’s a terrible idea”.” When Cariad Lloyd’s father died of cancer when she was 15, she was angry, “for, probably, 10 years”. But later in life, she found herself wanting to share her experience of grief, and started the award-winning podcast Griefcast.

Cariad has now written a book, ‘You Are Not Alone’, which delves into her own experience of grief, and what she has learned from her hundreds of podcast guests. In today’s Ways to Change the World, Cariad sits down with Krishnan Guru-Murthy to discuss dying, death, grief, and what comes next.
