You’ve Got Time – an Orange is the New Black Podcast: Grief and Loss 101

Orange Is The New Black S4

Christina Iovanne, Certified Thanatologist, joins us to break down all the nitty gritty when it comes to loss. She talked us through all the specifics of Grief and Loss, including the famous theories from Elizabeth Kübler Ross and John Bowlby, as well as how to apply these theories into the real life practice of mourning.

Also, we ask the best way to mourn a fictional character, process the loss of one of our favorites on Orange is the New Black, and talk about why the public mourning associated with Black Lives Matter can fall in the category of “disenfranchised grief.” Loss is hard, y’all. We’re here to help you through it. Loss is hard, y’all. We’re here to help you through it.
