#1723 Breath and Bone

This week, we’re devoting the whole show to one story about the year one woman hit rock bottom, then pulled herself back up again.

Just a heads up that this story deals with loss and can be hard to listen to in parts, but it’s a beautiful, intimate, story about healing, and we can promise it has a happy ending. Sam Loy, from Human/Ordinary brings us this one.

Music: ‘Pink Moon’ by Nick Drake, and original music by Kent Sutherland

Sam Loy is behind the fantastic podcast Human/Ordinary, which you can find here. It includes a longer version of this story.

Jessie Williams is the CEO of The Groundswell Project, a Not-For-Profit helping our society change the ways we approach and deal with death and dying. They developed Dying To Know Day, a national day for all Australians to consider their death, and perhaps accept it as a part of their life. Dying to Know Day is on August 8th. You can find them at groundswellproject.com, dyingtoknowday.org
