The Dead Parent Club Podcast

The Dead Parent Club is a community of like-minded young adults all grieving a similar loss. Each week, Kat and Emma speak candidly about their own grief journeys and are joined by guests and experts with the aim to help you as you navigate this new normal. This podcast will be your friend: it’ll make you laugh, cry, and feel connected to people that really get it. 

About the podcast

Hi! We’re Kat and Emma and we speak candidly every week about what it’s really like to lose a parent at a young age. We’ll be sharing our own stories and those of the guests that join us on the show. You can also expect to hear from people who are far more qualified than us, such as counsellors, solicitors, medical professionals and mindfulness coaches.

We’re hoping to normalise the topic of grief. And to create a space where young grievers feel seen and comfortable to talk about their loss. Throughout this podcast, you’ll hear stories you can relate to and benefit from expert advice that you can carry through to your everyday life.

But more than anything, you can expect laughter, tears, and real conversations from people who really GET it.

Episode 17 – How grief changes friendships

A lot of things change after our parent/s die, including your friendships and how you maintain and approach those relationships going forward. 

In this week’s episode, we share our own experience of changing friendships after grief and navigating these relationships during the most turbulent times of our lives. We also discuss how we approach friendships now compared to before our parent/s died, how comfortable we are in social situations now, how we feel about making new friends and ways our friends have shown us how wonderful they are since our parent/s died.
