episode 153: Kristoffer Hughes


This week Cariad talks to Kristoffer Hughes. Kristoffer is not only a writer, he is also a death services professional, a Druid and a Drag Queen, the perfect Griefcast guest. Kristoffer spoke to Cariad about his little sister who died when she was twenty-two of SUDEP, his Nain (grandma) who died this year and his Dad - as well as his work in mortuaries and at funerals. As ever we talk grief, tethering down pain + the privilege of being part of the end of a narrative.
