Death Is Hilarious

By Tawny Platis and Sam Peterson

When my husband died in November 2019 from a respiratory disease, I felt extreme anxiety, fear, loneliness, depression, and isolation. To cope, I immediately turned to dark comedy. It was what my husband and I had used throughout most of his illness to make the tough times bearable. Now, I want to share this coping skill with you on my podcast, Death Is Hilarious. Join me, Tawny Platis, my co-host Sam Peterson, and our guests as we talk about using stories, friendship, and lots of really dark jokes to cope with grief, loss, and trauma.
