Latest podcast: Men and Grief

We’ve all heard the stereotypes… men aren’t good with their emotions. Men don’t talk about things close to their hearts. It’s all ‘stiff upper lip’ and ‘show must go on’. So what happens when a man’s dying? Or suffers a bereavement? What’s visible on the outside doesn’t always reflect what’s going on inside. When a loved-one dies, people rally around, offer their support and try to find some helpful words. It may be a generalisation but men don’t find these things particularly easy to deal with. That’s what we’re exploring on this ‘Art of Dying Well’ podcast. You can listen below, visit our ‘Podcasts’ section, or our new audio home on Buzzsprout, where you can sign up using the platform of your choice.
