The frank talking grief podcast fronted by hosts Kat Hooker and Emma Jones and produced by This is Distorted, returns for its third series to coincide with Fa- ther’s Day - a challenging day for many who have lost a parent or parent fig- ure.
As expected the podcast doesn’t shy away from discussing the full range of emotions and complexities of dealing with grief. Talking about grief and death is still considered a taboo subject in our society, up to 7% of UK children will lose a parent before the age of 16 and yet there are limited relatable resources available to them.
In this latest series listeners can expect honest and candid chats with guests including Alex Brooker, Kimberly Hart-Simpson, Shaughna Phillips and grief experts to help listeners navigate their new normal.
Kat Hooker said, “This is a difficult time for people who have lost their father or father-figure. We hope that the podcast will offer some comfort as they approach Father’s Day this year.”
Emma Jones said: “The Dead Parent Club podcast is important all year round, but especially at dates that could be triggering for those who’ve lost loved ones. It allows listeners to explore their own feelings and realise that they’re not alone.”
Dead Parent Club is designed to be a friend to someone who has lost someone and dealing with grief. DPC is a community of likeminded young adults who are all grieving a similar loss. The podcast is a safe space for them to listen and share their own experiences.
