Stateside Presents author and podcaster Nora McInerny.
It’s a question people ask (and get asked) all the time: “How are you?” And normally we all just respond with “Fine!” even if we’re totally dying inside, so everyone can go about their day. “Terrible, Thanks For Asking” is a podcast by author, reluctant grief expert, and generally pretty funny person Nora McInerny that does the opposite of that. That lets people be honest about how they’re really feeling. Sometimes that means: Depressed! Anxious! Stuck in an internet doomscroll! Sometimes it means: If I laugh any harder, I'm gonna bruise a rib! And often, it's a whole lot of both. It may be Good Vibes Only all day every day at your local HomeGoods store, but here at TTFA, it's Bad Vibes Only.
